Savannah has often been called the most beautiful city in America, so it’s no surprise that it’s chock full of swoon-worthy photo opportunities, from the downtown Historic District to the picturesque shores of Tybee Island. Here are our top spots to snap a photo when you #StayinSavannah!
1. Wormsloe Historic Site
Take a stroll down the avenue lined with gorgeous live oaks draped in Spanish moss and catch the light as it filters through the trees. This historic site is favored among Savannah locals for engagement photos for its romance and drama.
2. Boat Ride Across the Savannah River
Whether you hop on the complimentary ferry during the day, or climb aboard the twinkling Georgia Queen for a dinner cruise as the sun sets, you’re sure to leave with some beautiful pictures of the Savannah River and the iconic Talmadge Bridge.
3. The Olde Pink House
This 18th century mansion is nestled on the edge of one of Savannah’s many lovely squares. It’s picture-perfect from the inside out, and also happens to be a favorite spot for ghost-hunters, so you never know what your camera might capture!
4. The Tybee Island Lighthouse
The Tybee Island Light Station looks like a painting from another era situated beside its quaint lighthouse keeper’s cottage and white picket fence. Climb 178 steps to the top for panoramic ocean views.
5. Café M
Relax with a coffee and a croissant at this charming café where everything is photo-worthy from the plates of pastel macarons to the Parisian-inspired décor.
This roof top bar on the Savannah riverfront is exclusively open to guests of the Homewood Suites by Hilton Savannah Historic District, and it’s the ideal spot to snap photos of the massive container ships as they pass by. At night, it transforms with neon-lit palms and live music, where you can take a poolside selfie in the glow of the mood lighting.
7. Jones Street
Jones Street captures Savannah’s old world charm with its mid-19th century architecture, brick road, and beautiful foliage. Shady and quiet, it’s the perfect place to step back in time and snap a black and white photo of Savannah’s historic homes.
8. Forsyth Park
Forsyth Park is the jewel in Savannah’s crown, and no trip would be complete without a photo of the gorgeous white fountain, situated beneath the dazzling canopy of trees. Visit on St. Patrick’s Day to see the water turn green in honor of the festivities!
