10 Best Places in Savannah to Snuggle With Your Sweetie

There's a magic to Savannah, which makes it the perfect city for a romantic rendezvous. Whether you're getting married, honeymooning, celebrating an anniversary or simply in search of some "us" time with your significant other, you'll find romance around every corner in this hospitable Southern city.

Book a room in one of the many charming mansions-turned-inn such as the Gastonian, or the Hamilton-Turner and you'll be taken back to an Old World gentility which is hard to beat. Both B&Bs are tucked into former mansions and boast rich antiques, exquisite furnishings and serve delicious breakfasts with true Southern flair.

For something more modern, the swanky Bohemian Hotel overlooking the Savannah River houses 75 stylish rooms and suites - some with balconies - and maritime-inspired décor with 18th-Century style and modern amenities.

Around nearly every corner in Savannah romance beckons along streets lined with graceful live oak trees swathed in Spanish moss, paired with manicured gardens punctuated with colorful blooms and gracious mansions. What better way to take it all in than by a delicate horse-drawn carriage?

Dining is a delight in this city of romantic restaurants and bistros framed by exotic culinary creations. Circa 1875 Gastropub and Elizabeth on 37th - considered two of the best in town, promise tasty cuisine in a superb historic setting.
