A few weeks ago Clint and I went exploring the Historic District of Savannah, Georgia.
It was a beautiful, picture perfect getaway.
It was everything I hoped it would be.... shaded parks with emerald tree canopies, quaint cobblestone streets, southern hospitality and majestic architecture.
We stayed at the Kehoe House, one of the historic bed and breakfast inns in Savannah. Its location in the heart of the historic district made it easy to experience Savannah. It was a short walk away from just about everything we wanted to see in the downtown area.
The John Wesley Room was our spacious, luxurious king room for the evening. Named for Reverend John Wesley, Founder of Methodism.
The Kehoe House included a gourmet cooked-to-order breakfast, a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception, homemade cookies, and turndown service.
We took a leisurely, shady stroll down to the City Police Barracks. The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department occupies the oldest continually active police headquarters in the nation.
Outside of the Barracks, one of the most photographed police cars in the City!
There's no better way to see Savannah than on foot, so we were eager to walk around and explore America's first planned city - the picturesque squares of Savannah - colorful, bright, historic oases.
Chippewa Square, statue of Gen. James Oglethorpe, founder of Georgia; and site of the “Forrest Gump” bench during the filming of the movie.
We had a lovely dinner at the Olde Pink House.
Forsyth Park - 26 acre park, large ornate fountain dates to 1858.
French Gothic-style Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
Colonial Cemetery - the oldest intact municipal cemetery in Savannah.
River Street - Iron bridges, cobblestone streets, and sidewalks tie together a unique collection of 19th-century buildings.
City Market - four renovated blocks in the heart of the historic district really capture the authentic atmosphere and character of the city’s old open marketplace.
