Keeping Up With The Joneses: Savannah Style

 ““Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!””
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭46:10‬ ‭

Butch and I were in Savannah a couple of weeks ago on business. I spent time shopping, eating, and walking (favorite activities) while he attended meetings. Situated in the historic district, Jones Street has been voted one of the most beautiful in North America by Southern Living, so I spent a couple of hours admiring the beautiful 19th century homes that line the cobblestone street!  Let’s not waste any time, the weather is perfect,  get your comfortable walking shoes on and join me!
Be sure to check out last year’s Strollin’ through Savannah.  Spanish moss drapes the live oaks on Jones Street.  
                                 The last four photos were not taken on Jones Street but still within the historic district.         What about you…have you ever been to Savannah?   What did you enjoy the most about your trip?  I certainly hope you enjoyed our walk today. Thanks for coming along with me!

    Gorgeous area! Cobbled streets are so quaint, and with the architecture of the homes, it is such a comfortable setting. I can imagine living in one of those if we ever decide to leave the farm. :-)

  2. Beautiful treelined street with great history.Such lovely architecture to enjoy. I know your stroll was enjoyable.
    I have been to Savannah but my trip was very short. You are right about needing good walking shoes. Not sure there is such a thing for me. I would love to go again and have more time.
    Enjoyed your pictures.

    • Bonnie, hopefully you will return to Savannah with more time to explore. Are you traveling to Europe anytime soon? Yes, good walking shoes even hurt my feet after several hours! Thanks!

    Absolutely lovely!!! Have been to Savannah once. Actually was passing through and just stopped to take a walk on the boardwalk by the river. Would love to go back and spend several days there. Thanks for sharing your pics.
    Love y’all.

    We spent our 40th wedding anniversary in Savannah and just loved it. It would be hard to choose my favorite. I loved the people, loved the homes and loved the food. Did you know that on River St. one restaurant will put out – like pizza that people don’t finish – on a bench so homeless people can eat. My hubby left his jacket with hotel keys, car keys, phones etc. at the table and the waiter tracked us down so he could return it. I would move there in a minute.

    • Patty, Savannah is a great place to celebrate an anniversary! I didn’t know about the River St. restaurant placing food out for the homeless! Sounds like you enjoyed your trip. Thanks for sharing your experiences!

    I have been to Savannah many times. Our son lives and works there. I never tire of the beautiful city. It is the epitome of southern charm and hospitality. Your pictures are beautiful and truly reflective of the outstanding architecture along so many of the streets in downtown Savannah. Thank you for sharing!

    Hi Pam, I had been wanting to watch Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil for a while now and finally found the DVD at a sale, so started watching last night BUT only for the views and Victorian aspect of it all. I’m wondering if any of those houses are in the movie?
    They are all just beautiful homes!

    • Gina, I have never seen the movie and I haven’t read the book, but I have thought about both. I would think that some might have been in the movie! That is a good question and I may have to check into that! Blessings!

    We are from the UK but we had the opportunity to visit Savannah with our kids last summer. We absolutely LOVED it! We stayed over on Hilton Head Island which was heaven and spent a day in Savannah while we were there. We loved the whole atmosphere of the place. We stopped for a drink in River Street and were most surprised to see an enormous tanker ambling down the river. It was a holiday we will never forget and your post brings back so many happy memories. Thanks so much for sharing. xx

    • Sue, it is so nice to meet you and thanks for your wonderful comments about Savannah! It is truly a lovely city! We go yearly for business but have time to enjoy the beauty of the city and the delicious food! Blessings!

We love your comments!
