Some Southern Exposure: Savannah​ Georgia & Hilton Head SC

In June, I took a short trip down south to Georgia and South Carolina. Since Hilton Head is an island it was much easier to fly into Savannah rather than directly onto the island. So we made use of the day we arrived and spent the day touring Savannah before heading across the bridge to Hilton Head!

To start our day in Savanah we took a stroll along the water and had lunch at a cute little restaurant overlooking the bay. I absolutely loved this street by the water because there were so many cute shops, restaurants, and bars to choose from! After fueling ourselves with lunch we took the trolly around Savannah which was perfect for seeing all the sights while learning about the history of Savannah without the hassle of trying to figure out where everything is.

Before heading to Hilton Head we had to make some quick stops and grab a bag of candy from one of the old fashioned candy shops where some you can watch them make homemade saltwater taffy! I recommend saving the taffy for later because another foodie staple of Savannah is Leopold’s Ice Cream where you can snag one of their many unique flavors of ice cream!

Hilton Head Island was the perfect little getaway spot with the beautiful beaches, quaint shops, and famous towns spread around the island! To be honest we spent most of the time at the beach but also got our exercise in by biking around the plantations on the island. Besides the beaches, another spot to visit during the day is the Harbour Town Lighthouse which is a staple of Hilton head island and a must-visit on your trip! There are so many shops to go into and romantic restaurants overlooking the water. Where if you time it right you can shop while you wait for your seat and then see the sunset while you enjoy a delicious meal!

Miami: Spring Break Edition

Miami offers all the spring break essentials; warm weather, cheap flights, good food, and great nightlife. My friends and I wanted to be right in the center of all the action so we booked a hotel in South Beach, which was really helpful because we didn’t have to Uber as often. One of the places we ate was called the BIG PINK, which was a diner-style restaurant that was perfect because it had SO MANY options! Perfect if your traveling with a big group of friends and want a cheap but trendy meal! Of course, we also had to get a taste of the more casual nightlife so we hit up Wet Willies for some late-night boozy slushies! WARNING! Be prepared to spend an hour deciding which flavor to get because they have so many delicious combos and well over 10 flavors to choose from! Rather than just staying in South Beach and going to the beaches all day we wanted to explore a bit so we decide to take a trip to Wynwood, which is an up and coming trendy neighborhood just over the bridge. In Wynwood, we stopped at some of the cutest places including Ooh Raw! Poke+Juice Bar where we grabbed these AMAZING pineapple acai bowls! Like can we please stop and take a minute to look at how beautiful they are! After breakfast, being the coffee addict I am, I stopped at Panther Coffee to get some of their freshly roasted iced coffee to give me some energy before going to the Wynwood Walls! Which is basically an outdoor art gallery! Perfect to get those insta worthy pics! Overall, if your looking for a fun spring break spot def check out Miami and some of these non-clubbing options!
