The city of Savannah is set up different than any place I have ever been. There are 22 squares in the historic district that each are different in their own way. They are not typical squares like I have seen here in Indiana, but are more like small parks inside of blocks of AMAZING historic southern homes. The Squares each have something different as a focal point. Many had fountains and statues, but they all were gorgeous.
We got into town at about 1pm, and the hotel was ready early! Woot Woot! Dropped suitcases off, and headed to explore town. We started at City Market in historic downtown Savannah where we grabbed lunch. Then we decided to just walk around and explore the shops and restaurants. If you ever take a trip to Savannah, you need to leave plenty of time to explore. You can find lots of suggestions of places to eat and things to do and see, but there is just so much to see here that if you plan too much ahead you will miss some really great stuff. Part of the fun in Savannah is just seeing all of the amazing homes, parks, and city streets, so we made sure to leave time just to walk around and explore.
On our walk, we popped into a Macaroon bakery. Sounds amazing right?! Well it was! I have always wanted to try macaroons so of course I picked up a dozen, and could not wait to taste them. They were almost too cute to eat, but don't worry I didn't let that stop me! Some of my favorites were the banana foster, bourbon pecan, and chocolate covered strawberry.
