Savannah, Georgia

Ahhhhh Savannah, Georgia. You stole my heart. We visited Savannah with my family when they were visiting. It is less than a 2 hour drive from Jacksonville. Savannah is one of the most quaint charming towns I have ever been to. There's so much history and the town has so much charm and personality. Last Friday night we picked up Jayden from work around 4:30, since his work is on the way to Savannah. We then made the drive up to Savannah. We drove into quite the storm that was heading through Savannah. It was crazy! When we arrived, the streets were flooded with at least a foot of water. It was kind of chaotic trying to find our hotel in the rain. Once we got to our hotel, we brought up our bags and hung out for a few minutes. Then we headed out to go to dinner. We ate at a restaurant called the Pink House. It was a Southern restaurant and we had a really nice dinner. After dinner we went back to the hotel and then to bed for the night. The next morning we woke up and checked out of the hotel and we decided to go on a trolley tour of the city. The trolley had a history narration and gave a really good overview of the city. After the trolley tour we took a riverboat ride on the Savannah river. It was a lot of fun! After the riverboat ride another crazy storm rolled in. We barely made it into a store when the rain came down like I've never seen before. We had to catch a trolley to get back to the car, so we made a mad dash across the street when a bolt of lightning struck right by us. It was so loud and everything went white. It was almost like a bomb went off! The thunder was instant and it made us all jump. Definitely the closest I've ever seen lightning. Once we caught the trolley it was back to the car. Then we made the drive back to Jacksonville. It was a great way to end my family's trip, they left early the next morning.

The hotel we stayed at was right on the Savannah river. This was the view from my parents and Drew's room
