1. Wormsloe Historic Site

Savannah, Georgia is a gorgeous destination with many picturesque spots. This post details the most photo worthy locations in this historical city.The Wormsloe Historic site and its famous tree-lined driveway are at the top of this list because, well…just LOOK at it! This 1.5 mile-long Oak Avenue creates a stunning effect for photographers. In fact, numerous movies have actually been filmed on site (including Something to Talk About) ! This large estate is part of what remains from the original Wormsloe Plantation, established by one of Georgia’s colonial founders, Noble Jones. Whatever you choose to do during your time in Savannah, I urge you to take the time to peruse the Wormsloe property.

2. The Owens-Thomas House

Savannah, Georgia is a gorgeous destination with many picturesque spots. This post details the most photo worthy locations in this historical city.There are sooo many gorgeous houses in Savannah that have been maintained and now serve as historic museums/landmarks. Therefore, it’s kind of difficult to pick and choose which to hit and which to skip. Thankfully, I was recommended the Owens-Thomas House by Visit Savannah. Admission is $20/adult and include a guided tour that leaves every 15-30 minutes. Hours can be found here. My favorite part of this landmark? The courtyard, featuring a charming parterre garden (pictured above).

3. Forsyth Park

Savannah, Georgia is a gorgeous destination with many picturesque spots. This post details the most photo worthy locations in this historical city.Forsyth Park is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon, relaxing under the shade of the gigantic oak trees. Occupying 30 acres, this large city park was created to emulate cosmopolitan cities such as Paris, France. The fountain (pictured above) is one of the best known parts of the park and is dyed green every year in celebration of St. Patrick’s day!

4. The Olde Pink House

Savannah, Georgia is a gorgeous destination with many picturesque spots. This post details the most photo worthy locations in this historical city.The Olde Pink House is one of Savannah’s most renowned restaurants. This mansion was built in 1771 for James Habersham Jr. and was one of the only buildings in the city to survive the 1796 fire. While the house is known for its rosy color, it wasn’t always this way. In fact, the outside was originally white. The red bricks underneath the white plaster would bleed through, causing the mansion to turn its famous pink color. The Olde Pink House isn’t just an attraction for its great food. It’s actually said that James Habersham Jr. haunts the mansion and frequently locks ladies into the women’s restroom.

A beautiful cast iron balcony surrounds the building, beckoning visitors to enter. Interestingly enough, the Noble Hardee mansion is one of the few houses in Savannah to be left unrestored. Nonetheless, many Savannah inhabitants believe that the run-down state of the mansion adds character and reveals its true age.

6. Leopold’s Ice Cream

This famous ice cream shop has been in the same family since it was founded in 1919 and has managed to keep its recipes secret too! My favorite flavor to order at Leopold’s? Chocolate chewies and cream. 

7. The Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist

Savannah, Georgia is a gorgeous destination with many picturesque spots. This post details the most photo worthy locations in this historical city.Did you know that Georgia’s original charter prevented Catholics from settling in the state? At the time, it was feared that Catholics would be likely to side with the Spaniards in Florida. Nonetheless, after the passing of years, this prohibition slowly faded away, leading the the construction of Savannah’s Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. The church is now an icon of the city, with 81 gorgeous stained glass windows lining the walls. Many features of the cathedral are a nod towards the Savannah’s Irish heritage and Saint Patrick.

8. Rainbow Row (E Bryan St.)

Savannah, Georgia is a gorgeous destination with many picturesque spots. This post details the most photo worthy locations in this historical city.Charleston isn’t the only Southern city with a Rainbow Row. If you like brightly colored houses as much as I do, you can’t miss these triplet houses on East Bryan Street.

9. The Historic District

Savannah, Georgia is a gorgeous destination with many picturesque spots. This post details the most photo worthy locations in this historical city.While most of the photo worthy spots I’ve mentioned are in Savannah’s historic district, these aren’t the only places to see! This region is stunning in its entirety. So, I recommend walking around and exploring it on your own. There are so many beautiful homes to see that are kept up in an amazing state. To beat the heat and humidity, wake up early in the morning and walk the historic district.

    I’ve been to Savannah a million times in the past few years, but still haven’t made it to Wormsloe. I think the last time I was in Savannah, they were trying to decide how badly a recent hurricane had damaged the site? Either way, great images of all of the places in Savannah. I’ll have to visit some of the places you mentioned that I am not as familiar with. 🙂 #wanderfulWednesday

    very beautiful spots indeed. I love the hugging trees the most. Whenever I cross or drive through such paths where trees from both sides intermingle like this, I love it. And the part shade part sunny road below them looks so nice to drive through

    Savannah is certainly a picturesque part of Georgia. I have fond memories of travelling through with my parents many years ago and enjoying the charm. Charleston is also beautiful. I remember the cobble stoned pathways. My mother has a beautiful gold ornament from Charleston and it always brings back happy memories.

    I loved this post! My husband, Boris and I just moved from Savannah after living there for a year and this post definitely brought me back. It’s just a beautiful place and you picked the best places definitely! Although, we never ended up trying Leopold’s! Crazy I know, there was always such a line lol. And we kept pushing it off. Looks good!!!

    One of my biggest regrets in life is not moving to Savannah Georgia. As many times as I’ve been there I still do not have enough time to do everything I wish to do. To me Savannah is the most beautiful city on earth.
