Experience River Street, Savannah, Georgia

River Street is on the Savannah River, Savannah, Georgia, one of the most nostalgic cities anywhere. Watch the old tug boats and see The Waving Girl Statue, Florence Martus, where she greets visitors and ships. Some of the most delectable foods are yours during your stay. Take tours of the grand old city, shop and enjoy the night life that's forever ongoing.

Among civil war military forts and battle sites that are must visits, Savannah hosts the third largest St. Patrick's Day Parade and festivals in the world.  Third only to Dublin, Ireland and New York, New York.
Gotta tell you, if you aren't in Dublin or New York, Savannah is the place to be. There, you'll find old bookstores, art galleries and shops for your every whim. Since Georgia is known for peanuts, of course there's a peanut shop where you can find the ultimate treat for yourself and pack away several items for friends and family. Delicious!

If you love candy, and I don't know too many who don't, the candy stores there are to die for. The butter pecans are the best I've ever had. Lord, the pralines alone are enough to make you want to dance on the streets. You may see a bit of dancing in the streets, so don't be shy if you want to kick up your heels.

Sit by the river and relax and take in all the festivities. If you get a chance to visit, you won't regret the trip.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone in two days, nine hours and forty-seven minutes. I hope you have a great day!

  1. Hey Carol! Lovely descriptions. You had me at delectable food. Wish I was there to sit by the river with you and enjoy that.

    1. J.D., you'd absolutely love Savannah. Like Houston, the city is filled with history. Tybee Island is a short drive across the bridge. Too beautiful and relaxing! Can't wait to visit again.
