Tuesday afternoon we took our children on their first ever carriage ride.
We took a guided tour of downtown Savannah. It was very interesting, and we really enjoyed it.
Savannah has so much charm and is full of history. There are 22 squares downtown, paver walkways, gorgeous trees and beautiful historic buildings and churches.
After the carriage ride, Ryan and I got some really good coffee from Cup to Cup Cafe.
Then we walked over to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.
What a gorgeous church to get to see and walk through. It was built in the 1800’s and renovated in the 1900’s.
Our kids have grown up in a non-traditional church in a metal building, so they were in total awe of the beauty of this church.
We walked around downtown around the squares for awhile, and then we walked over to River Street.
River Street is a happening place in Savannah.
The Savannah River runs along one side of the street, and the other side is lined with shops and restaurants.
It’s a paver street. The buildings are century old converted cotton warehouses.
We stopped in River Street Sweets to try some of their world famous pralines.
They were delicious, all of us agreed.
River was excited to have a street with the same name as her.
We live in an RV, so we don’t make many purchases when we shop. We do like window shopping, purchasing postcards and Christmas ornaments, though.
We went into Byrd’s Famous Cookies. After we were given 11 free cookies to sample, we felt we should buy at least a small box to take home. Haha.
We decided to have dinner at Spanky’s on River Street. The kids had one of their favorites, pizza, and Ryan and I shared chicken fingers and spuds. It was great food and reasonably priced. We spent around $55 including the tip for our family of 12.
Ryan and I told our kids that all we did that day were the kind of things that we, as adults, really consider fun. They said that it was fun for them as well.
We’ve now moved on to Charleston, SC. Let us know of anything you think we’d like to do while we are here.
