Girls Getaway to Savannah

Leah drove from Atlanta to meet me in Savannah for a Girls Getaway to this beautiful, historic town. We arrived at the brand new Avia Hotel in Savannah ( for a wonderful Girls Getaway to Savannah. Trendy and charming, we both loved this hotel the moment we walked in. This new boutique hotel chain currently has four properties in the U.S. and makes guests feel welcome both in the hotel as well as the city they are visiting.

Founded in 1733 as Georgia’s first city, Savannah offers visitors a look at southern life with its architecture, charm and soulful food. We started our adventure relaxing on River Street (, which offers a wide variety of more than 100 galleries, shops, pubs restaurants and hotels. We enjoyed the River Street happy hour with live acoustic music, a great view of the Savannah River and some interesting people watching. We had our first celeb sighting and just had to take our picture with her (thanks Marilyn).

After asking a few locals for a restaurant recommendation, we decided to try Garibaldi Cafe (, where I started with the Bloody Mary Oysters and a Raspberry Mojito Martini. After indulging in delicious (and fattening) Lowcountry fare in Charleston, Garibaldi provided a nice change to “comforting Italian” and seafood.
