Gather your gal pals and explore the unique blend of historic charm, laid-back fun, and modern sophistication of Savannah. Its ideal location invites visitors to experience the city and the seaside within a few days, making it perfect for a bachelorette party, reunion, or a “because we deserve it!” getaway.
Here’s a three-day itinerary for the perfect Savannah girls’ weekend!
Day 1: Meet at Savannah’s Best Bars
As your friends arrive in town, make time to get the lay of the land while sampling some of the local food and drink. Catch up over wine and apps at the French-inspired Circa 1865. Then ride the free vintage-style trolley along the waterfront or stroll the Savannah Historic District for an impromptu bar crawl.
For a more planned-out, yet pleasantly surprising ladies’ night, sign up for the original Martini Tour, which not only gives you an alternative guided tour of Savannah’s Historic District, but also provides everything from elderflower to tropical fruit martinis for the cocktail connoisseur.
Day 2: From Brunch to a Bit of Savannah History
Start out with a hearty, yet elevated, Savannah Southern brunch: choose from a fried green tomato Benedict at B Matthew’s Eatery or a bourbon maple syrup-drenched brioche French toast at The Collins Quarter. Once you can’t take another bite, go for a leisurely walking tour or shopping mission. Tour the famous Southern Gothic Bonaventure Cemetery to indulge in your true crime curiosity, or take a ghost tour through Savannah in a horse-drawn carriage.
In the heart of town, you’ll find a string of Savannah vintage thrift shops. For dinner, make reservations at The Grey, a converted Greyhound terminal serving contemporary Southern cuisine in a classic Art Deco leather-and-dark-wood dining room.
Day 3: A Day of Relaxation in Savannah (And Tybee Island, Too)
Now it’s truly time to treat yo’self. A girls’ weekend isn’t complete without a group spa visit for mani/pedis, facials, and serious lounging.
Book a package at a luxurious day getaway like Spa Bleu, which uses organic and local products. Go all out with a day on Tybee Island in a rented cabana right on the beach, then indulge in local seafood and BBQ at a no-frills joint like Gerald’s Pig and Shrimp.
If you’re not much into spa days, how about a visit to the bookstore? The Book Lady Bookstore in the heart of Savannah’s historic district holds over 50,000 books. After picking up a few to take home, board a Savannah Riverboat cruise complete with live music and dinner while seeing the sights of the city. And, what better way to top off your visit with a scoop of butter pecan at Leopold’s Ice Cream?
So, call up your old friends and coordinate calendars—from bachelorette parties to birthday parties, there’s no better excuse to get together than a Savanah girls’ weekend.
