Some of you may or may not know that my husband is in the military and this means lots and lots of moving around. Sometimes you get a lot of notice and other times its last minute that you receive orders and have to move. The reason I am bringing this up is because we thought we would have more time to explore Georgia, but we didn’t. We received orders that we needed to be in Texas by the beginning of February, so we quickly made plans to go to Savannah, Georgia. Our trip only consisted of two days of exploration, but it was a glorious two day trip.
We walked the streets of the downtown historic district as well as walking by the water. The architecture in the town was colorful and clean. It had an old south feel, which I absolutely love. Savannah is very artsy and has a lot of college students in the area. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. They have a ton of pubs and shopping in the downtown district. Honestly, I could have shopped all day if we didn’t bring the kids with. They don’t do well with shopping; I can only go about an hour and then it is on to the next.
We stopped at the Coffee Fox for some extra breakfast haha (we are total foodies) and LOVED the atmosphere. It was super hipster and small, which made it really hard to get our double BOB through the door, but we made it happen. It was so funny walking in to a relatively quiet coffee shop and being the party that walked through the door. I swear some of the people sitting at the bar in the shop were wondering what tornado just graced their presence. Before I continue, here is the address to the Coffee Fox.
We also stopped by a DELICIOUS cake shop called Wicked Cakes and WOW! Their lemon blueberry cupcake is no joke. It had a lemon filling that melted in our mouths. The cake is soft, which I like. I don’t like cake that is too thick and spongey. I like my cake to be moist and airy. Wicked Cakes is seriously a delicious place that you need to check out. I took this picture standing in front of their adorable shop. Their striped canopy is perfect for pictures AND I almost forgot to mention that they have happy hour where their cupcakes are super cheap. The woman who was working said they run out right when happy hour starts, so she said to make sure you get there early BEFORE happy hour begins to grab your dessert.
We stayed the the SpringHill Suites by Marriott right off of West Broughton street in the downtown historic district. The hotel was in the perfect location; super accessible and easy to get to the places we wanted to visit by foot. This helps save us so we could use our stroller and baby carriers to get where we needed to go. You guys, I can’t say it enough…the hotel was FANTASTIC. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the lobby was extremely clean. They had FREE lollipops and complimentary breakfast, which was amazing! We grabbed like 8 lollipops for the kids and the staff encouraged us to grab as many as we wanted. They didn’t make me feel weird for grabbing a handful.
The room was large enough to hold two queen beds and a pull-out couch that was in a sitting area. It was just the right size to hold a family of five. I hope to go back soon and stay here again. I really enjoyed my stay and loved the surrounding area. I posted all of the hotel pics on Insta Story two weeks ago when we traveled to Savannah.
The shopping included: J Crew, LOFT, Kate Spade, Lulu Lemon, Banana Republic, Anthropology, and more.
The market was an adorable little spot to listen to live music and grab an ice cream treat or a bite to eat. I would love to see it in the summer and dance the night away with my husband.

I hope you enjoy a trip to Savannah, Georgia soon! Never give up on traveling with kids. They WILL adjust and figure out ways to keep themselves busy. We have traveled from Hawaii to New York, driven from New York to Georgia MULTIPLE times with the kids, driven to Savannah, Charleston, and El Paso Texas with the kids. If you have ANY questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
