Travel guide: Savannah Georgia

Savannah, Georgia is one of the best travel destinations! Here are my favorite places in Savannah!

Attractions: 

 Savannah city market:

 Savannah City Market is four block outdoor market that has been ran since the early 1700’s. In the early 1700’s it was Savannah’s central market place for people to trade, shop for groceries and mingle with other community members. The market is now home to many restaurants, gift shops and bars.

River Street:

Take a stroll on Savannah’s historic cobblestone lined River Street! Located on the river, River street is home to 75 boutiques, restaurants and bars housed in old cotton warehouses. I would recommend not driving on River Street as the street is made up of old cobblestone it would not be good for your tires.

Shopping on Broughton Street

Broughton Street is a great place for shopping! It is home to many shops! Many well  known retailers such as Urban Outfitters, Bluemercury, H&M, Banana Republic and many more have a location on Broughton Street! But Broughton Street is also home to a lot of locally owned shops that make Broughton Street unique. My favorite locally owned shops on Broughton are Civvies New and Recycled clothing ( 14 e Broughton Savannah, Georgia) and Savannah’s underground market (201 w Broughton st Savannah, Georgia).
