A Classic Picnic at Forsyth Park

If you’re looking for a creative way to woo a lover, you can’t go wrong with a classic picnic in the park. Bring a comfortable blanket and a basket filled with delectable treats – like fresh fruits and cheeses – and enjoy the shady trees and green grass. After your picnic, walk through the center of the park and you’ll find the historic Fragrant Garden – an aromatic garden filled with fresh flowers and blossoming shrubs. The relaxing fragrances and floral scenery will make your romantic picnic unforgettable.

A Nature Walk through the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens

With patches of bright azaleas and fragrant roses, you and your partner can spend the afternoon enjoying nature together. Often used as a wedding venue, the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens is full of natural romance vibes. Stroll through one of the nature trails and reminisce on your love story. With scenic ponds, endless flowers and quaint gazebos – the photo ops are endless at the Botanical Gardens.

An Extravagant Dinner at Local 11Ten Food and Wine

True romantics know that fine dining is a must. Complete with candles, dim lighting and mahogany furniture – the interior of Local 11Ten Food & Wine was surely designed with lovebirds in mind. Sharing a decadent meal from a menu that includes local seafood, fresh cheeses and a full six course chef’s option is the proper way to show that special someone that you care. Wine and dine your significant other with an emphasis on wine – Local 11Ten has literally hundreds of wines to choose from!

A Cozy Carriage Ride through the Historic District

This old-fashioned date idea will make time move slowly, allowing you to make the most of your romantic evening. Now that it’s cooler outside, you can bring a blanket and snuggle close while riding through the Historic District. Enjoy a tour of Savannah’s charming homes, streets, squares and nature while cuddling on a carriage. This idea is great for lovers who want to take trip back in time.

A Sunrise View at Tybee Island

There is nothing more romantic than watching a sunrise at the beach – so it’s no surprise that Tybee Island is a top option for a date night. For optimum sunrise viewing, watch the action from the Tybee Pier and Pavilion. Walk along the beach, write in the sand and hold hands as you watch the sun come up for a delightfully cheesy romantic date.

Rooftop Cocktails at Rocks on the Roof

Visit the top of the Bohemian Hotel and you’ll find Rocks on the Roof – an indoor/outdoor rooftop bar overlooking the Savannah River. Go when it’s dark outside to see the lights, moon and stars reflect on the water. Enjoy classic cocktails while listening to soft music. As if the view of the city wasn’t enough, Rocks on the Roof often has live music – so you and your lover can dance the night away under the stars.

    Stayed at the Homewood suites on the River Christmas week 2016. Loved the views we had of the River and downtown. So fun watching the cargo ships coming and going just beyond the windows of our room! We always make
    it a priority to get to the beach at Tybee.
    One of our best Christmases ever!

    Yes, it is a $5. fee. Many other botanical gardens charge much more. And what better way to support BEAUTY AND BOTANICAL LABOR!!!
