A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend and I took a trip to Georgia. It was spring break, so it was the perfect time to go down an visit his folks. They live in Savannah which was perfect because we got to visit the famous riverfront. We stayed there for a couple of days and then headed to Atlanta to see my parents who were also vacationing. Overall, it was a pretty lowkey trip aside from me stressing about COVID-19. It’s been about two weeks since the trip and we’ve been social distancing ever since.
Where we went
- Savannah, Ga
- Atlanta, Ga
Where we stayed
- In Savannah, we stayed at my boyfriend’s parents’ house
- In Atlanta, Homewood Suites by Hilton at Perimeter City. I loved the location because it wasn’t too busy, but it also close to everything.
What we did
- We only spent one full day in Savannah; part of it was spent with H’s parents and the second part was spent on Savannah’s River Street. I loved the scenery! It was super walkable too. There were plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from, many of which were full. As an aside, we went right before Corona cases started gaining momentum, so we were super cautious about social distancing. Since H’s parents live there, I don’t doubt that we’ll be back to explore everything the riverfront has to offer. We stopped by Woof Gang Bakery and got some baked goods for Ash. I wish I had gotten more because she loved them so much! After soaking in our surroundings, we got a caricature done. It took about 40 minutes and made for the perfect souvenir. I had a taste for seafood, so we stopped by The Shrimp Factory for lunch. It was one of the few restaurants that weren’t packed and the service was great. Before heading back home–well, H’s parents’ house– we stopped by Wet Willy’s. I believe I got mango mixed apple in the souvenir cup which I forgot when I was packing. We watched the latest Coronavirus news while sipping on a glass of wine to soak in the last few hours with H’s parents. The next morning, we woke up at around 5:30 and made out way to Atlanta.
- Just like in Savannah, we spent one full day in Atlanta. My sisters, who are also in college, had spring break during the same week as mine. My mom took them on a week-long vacation to Atlanta so we met with them and did the soul food walking tour. This was my favorite part of the trip as it allowed me to get a glimpse of Atlanta’s rich history. I loved seeing all of the street art and the city’s notable landmarks. After the walking tour, we headed to the hotel and spent some quality time with my family.
