A Perfect Day in Savannah


Dripping with Southern charm, Savannah is often referred to as the Gem of the South, and with good reason. From its natural beauty to its historic roots, you’ll get lost in the warmth of Savannah’s Southern hospitality. Our SELECT curation team recently returned from a trip of their own and shared their perfect day.

8:20am

There's no better way to experience the essence of Savannah than with a stay at the Mansion on Forsyth Park, Autograph Collection (700 Drayton St). Awake in this lovingly restored Victorian mansion to views of Spanish moss gently swaying from the branches of majestic live oaks before kick-starting your morning with a workout at the nearby CrossFit SteadFast (be sure to check out their awesome collection of t-shirts).

9:35am

Wander around Forsyth Park, famous for its ancient oak trees, gigantic azalea bushes and ornate wrought-iron fountain. From there, take your time as you explore the city's enchanting squares. Laid out in a perfect grid between the park and the Wilmington River, these 22 squares form the heart of the city's historic district. Take a few minutes to recharge at Savannah Coffee Roasters, which has been roasting the city's beans for over a century.

11:23am

Make your way to Bonaventure Cemetery (330 Bonaventure Rd), located on a scenic bluff overlooking the Wilmington River. Made famous for its appearance in the book and movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," Bonaventure is considered one of the world's most beautiful cemeteries.

12:48pm

Jump in a cab to the Collins Quarter (151 Bull St), a light-filled Aussie-inspired restaurant a short drive away. Run by a Melbourne native, this oh-so-cool cafe with twenty-foot-high ceilings and comfortable booths serves outstanding must-try dishes paired with an impressive wine and craft beer list. Trust us, the short rib hash with potato cakes and chimichurri is well worth the cab fare.

2:08pm

Visit one of the city's museums, most of which are within easy walking distance of the restaurant. For contemporary art lovers, the SCAD Museum of Art (601 Turner Blvd) is a mecca for world-class traveling exhibitions, while the Telfair Academy (121 Barnard St) is home to an impressive collection of nineteenth- and twentiethcentury American art.

6:11pm

Join award-winning Executive Chef Shahin Afsharian in a cooking class at the 700 Kitchen Cooking School located inside the Mansion on Forsyth Park, Autograph Collection. Learn new skills and explore unfamiliar flavors as you prepare a multi-course dinner in the school's stateofthe-art kitchen. Classes range from the classic Italian to Lowcountry staples and are guaranteed to be a memorable experience.

8:56pm

Enjoy a nightcap at the Casimir's Lounge rooftop terrace on the top floor of your hotel. With gorgeous views of Forsyth Park and an impressive menu of signature drinks, there's no better place to end your perfect day in Savannah. Thankfully you can sleep in the next day, since late check-out is yet another SELECT perk for booking through our agency.
