If you’re like most of us, you and your S.O. are itching to break free from what can feel like an endless Groundhog’s Day loop during quarantine. In an effort to make sure you and your partner are thriving (and not just surviving), we’ve created the Roadtrip Roundup series to highlight accessible destinations that make for a great (safe) escape from the day-to-day. Next stop: Savannah, GA.
Spending a weekend in Savannah might just be dreamy and distracting enough to help you both recharge and return home feeling refreshed. Whether you’re a pair that loves to dig into the history of your destination, prioritize pampering at every turn, or simply hunt down the best food and drinks around, there’s something for you in Savannah.
If your first instinct is to head to Airbnb for charming but affordable accommodations, you’ll find no shortage of unique spaces. As an added bonus, many of Savannah’s most impressive listings follow a 5-step enhanced cleaning process, including The Golden Fox off Forsyth, a stunningly historic 1888 victorian dripping in southern charm.
If you and your partner prefer the benefits of more traditional accommodations, look no further than The DeSoto (you can read about their “SoClean” protocol and initiatives here). Serving up a “new definition of Southern style,” The DeSoto is conveniently located, offers great specials and packages (including a romance package), and features an impressive collection of dining options.
FOOD & DRINK
Truthfully, there’s just no way we can compile all of the best cuisine destinations in Savannah. If you’ve been there, you already knew that, and if you haven’t, you’re in luck, because visitors are hard-pressed to find a meal or beverage that isn’t memorable in some way. Here’s a list of our recommendations that we think are extra special for couples.
ENTERTAINMENT & ATTRACTIONS
We weren’t kidding when we said Savannah has something for every kind of escape:
SAFETY & RESTRICTIONS
Traveling safely in the midst of a pandemic is a priority for many. Almost all of our recommendations allow for outdoor seating and dining, open-air adventuring, and socially distanced fun.
Savannah currently requires the public to wear masks or face coverings while in public, and has safety restrictions in place for dining and restaurants, with the goal of keeping locals and visitors safe. That being said, we recommend that you remain considerate of others during your travels, sanitize as you go, and opt to stay home should either of you not feel well.
