I finally escaped the madness and this little apartment of mine to take a Covid-19 free vacation to Savannah, GA. Savannah is one of the many destinations on my list for 2020, and probably the only one that will be checked off my list unfortunately.
I arrived on a Friday afternoon, and much to my dismay, I was suffering from an ear infection that kind of made things unbearable. I spent my Friday afternoon eating crab cakes( IFYKYK) at Huey’s Restaurant on the river walk and from there the adventure started.
Savannah Slow Ride
Friday night consisted of learning a little bit of history courtesy of Savannah Slow Ride. Savannah Slow Ride is a 15 person pedal powered bike that tours the city and it’s so much fun. The particular bike ride we booked was the Pub Crawl, which lets you check out historic bars such as Pour Larry’s, Mint To Be, Staffords, and a few other bars along the tour. The bike ride is roughly two hours long and the total cost is about $42. Did I mention we toured with a random group of guys celebrating a bachelor’s party?! What a time.
Tybee Island, GA
My Saturday was one for the books. I started out my day heading to Tybee Island to see the lighthouse up close and personal and to catch some sun while social distancing. After spending a few hours at the beach we headed back into the city to enjoy the rest of our day. One sugar scrub making class and a scroll through Forsyth Park later and we were on the quest for food. Covid-19 has really put a damper on dining out, even though I’m 100% paranoid when in large crowds anyway. Many restaurants are severely short staffed and the wait times were unreal. It’s better if you make a reservation ahead of time. We settled for BBQ and headed back to our AirBNB for a girl’s night in thanks to the rain. Before we knew it, it was Sunday and we found ourselves having brunch at the Funky Brunch Café before heading home. Although I didn’t get to do half of the things that I wanted to, I still think that Savannah is such a gorgeous place and I’ll definitely be heading back really soon.
