SO FUN!!! You’re in luck cause I am from Atlanta and lived/will live in Savannah with the FI!!
Savannah is GORGEOUS!! So romantic and the epitome of Southern charm, you’ll love it! You might actually like a bed and breakfast, it’s just really homey and comfortable and they usually do breakfast to your room or in the dining room and one we did had wine and apps every night for us which was cool to do before or after dinner to kind of “pre-game” before we went out for the night. A hotel we stay in frequently for events or nights we didn’t need to drive home was Avia. It’s right in the heart of Historic Downtown and in walking distance to Riverstreet and City Market, both of which are MUST dos because they have great restaurants and cool bars with neat shops to look in. I suggest getting ice cream and candy from River Street Sweets, omg they have the best pecan praline ice cream!! Do a pedicad ride, it’s so fun and they work off of however much you think they earned. Of course, it’s romantic to do a horse and buggy ride 🙂 Ghost tours and the haunted pub crawl tours are fun and you learn about the history of the city. The old mansions are beautiful and you can tour them. Some of our favorite bars are Bonerz on River Street (small, good food, and karaoke!), B and B at City Market, Pour Larry’s at City Market, and countless that I honestly can’t remember the name to but any on River Street or City are great! Wild Wings at City is great to get late night food and drinks, watch some sports. And you have to get pizza from Sweet Melissa’s, they’re open til late in morning and they have THE best pizza, you’ll see from the line it always has. I love how you can walk everywhere and you can walk around city with alcohol, as long as it’s in a cup. O and you HAVE to eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant, THe Lady and Sons, you will never eat better SOuthern food and do the buffet. It’s a little strange how they do their seating and reservations so research before you go, don’t just show up. I feel I could talk so much more about Savannah but that’s all I can think of now, pm me if you want to know more or ask questions!
Atlanta is my hometown and I love it, love the city! You can get some good deals on staying downtown, just research it online and think about what you want to do while you are there and plan your hotel that way. The city is really big and kinda spread so that helps but there is MARTA (our subway type transportation) and a lot of hotels do shuttle services. Some of the fun things is the Coke museum, the aquarium, Centennial Olympic and Piedmont Park, the Margaret Mitchell house (author of Gone With The Wind) and if you can its fun to catch at show at the Fox Theatre and any other theatre in town. Depending on when you go, there’s the Braves at Turner Field (baseball) and if you like hockey there’s the Thrashers at the GA Dome. Tons of good restaurants!! The Sundial at the top of The Westin Hotel is SO GOOD and romantic and the cool thing is that it’s a circular restaurant that rotates and you can see the entire city. Very cool, make reservations! Atlantic Station is fun, it’s all outdoor shopping and there’s some really good restaurants and a movie theater. Night life is great, just depends on what atmostphere you’re looking for. There’s Hooters, Hard Rock Cafe, and Taco Maco and then there’s the college type bars by GA State and GA Tech, the Vinings, and Buckhead and plenty in between and a lot of the restaurants are bars at night. The Varsity is a MUST! It’s an old huge drive in restaurant from the early half of the 1900s and is right across from GA Tech, and known in Atlanta. The best greasy chili dogs and hamburgers that you will ever eat and you must wear the hat!
Hope this helps, I love my cities!!! I hope you and your Fiance have a GREAT TIME and like I said, please pm if you want more or have questions!!
