Savannah - holiday weekend trip

Savannah, Georgia
I have already made the most of my July 4th holiday weekend - thank you America! Savannah is just over 100 miles down the coast and a perfect weekend get-away. Stretching the budget we stayed at a Courtyard Marriott midtown and then found a deal for Friday night at the Inn at Ellis Square in the historic district. Good planning!

Checking my phone step counter yesterday we walked over ten miles - parking at Forsyth Park and heading all the way to the river and back exploring all the beautiful garden squares along the way. We ate a praline on the river walk, visited the city cemetery, St. Johns Cathedral, the SCAD shop and museum and splurged on the Old Pink House for dinner. This morning we did a drive through Bonaventure Cemetery and visited friends before heading back to Charleston. Thanks Savannah!

Happy July 4th everyone!
