What to do in Savannah, GA

Don’t know what to do in Savannah? Let me help you out, my friend. I get it, there are a lot of things to see and do in Savannah.  It can be overwhelming. First of all, ride the trolley! Then proceed to Broughton street and these must-do things below.


6 Places to Go in Savannah, GA


These are the places I absolutely must go whenever I hit up downtown Savannah.


1. Lulu’s Chocolate Bar


What to do in Savannah, GA.

Have you ever been to a chocolate bar? Did you even know there’s such a thing as a chocolate cocktail? If decadent cakes and dessert cocktails are your thang, then Lulu’s Savannah is the place to go. So many amazing, sinfully delicious choices.

Tip: they have a killer cheese plate that you need in your life. Trust me.


2. World of Beer


What to do in Savannah, GA.

If you’re looking for craft beer in Savannah, you absolutely must visit the World of Beer. With hundreds of beers from around the world and design-your-own flights, WOB is a must-do on Broughton St. Hands-down one of the best attractions in downtown Savannah.

Tip: They don’t offer food in-house at this location but if you ask they will provide menus to local eats that have agreed to deliver to WOB.


3. The Spice and Tea Exchange


What to do in Savannah, GA.

So many smells to smell! Not only are there fantastic tea blends available, there are also flavored salts and sugars. The walls are lined with jars with cork lids that you’re allowed to sniff to your sniffer’s content. The one thing that you MUST smell is the black truffle sea salt. I’m pretty sure this is what heaven smells like.


Tip: Usually samples of one or two kinds of tea are available in the center of the store.


4. The Savannah Bee Company


What to do in Savannah, GA.

First of all, get in line for long string of free honey samples. So good.  When you’re done with that head to the back of the store of $5 honey mead tasting. I promise you’ll leave with a bottle of mead.

This Savannah honey company has a great story and is definitely a business to support.

Tip: Don’t miss their other amazing products. My favorite lip balm of all time is the Savannah Bee Lavendar Rosemary lip balm. I brought two with me to India and made my BFF promise to send me more if I run out.


5. The Paris Market


What to do in Savannah, GA.
Or, as I like to call it, the Pinterest in Real Life Store. The Paris Market in Savannah is gorgeous and one for wandering through. Everything is just so PRETTY. It’s a great place for finding decor inspiration.

Tip: There’s a ground floor and a lower level. Near the back of the store of the ground floor are many tester bottles of very swanky (read: expensive) lotions and perfumes. Treat yo self!


6. Civvies Thrift Store


What to do in Savannah, GA.

This ain’t your mama’s thrift store. It’s super hip and I never feel cool enough to be there. But I go anyway. If you love vintage, recycled clothing, you definitely need to spend a few minutes playing dress up at Civvies.


Tip: Don’t miss the sign. The entrance from the street takes you straight up a flight of stairs and to the store which is on the second floor.

So that’s the big six – my favorite stuff to do Savannah. All but Lulu’s is located conveniently on Broughton St. But never fear, it’s just around the corner.
