Top 5 Romantic things to do in Savannah
Savannah Ghost Tours are not usually what one thinks of as a romantic time. However, last night I ran into a couple that recognized me and called out my name. They told me they were on my Spirits and Scoundrels tour a year ago as their first date. In fact, their first kiss was at our stop at the Mercer-Williams House. Now here they were, a year later and taking their second ghost tour. This time though, they were married with a beautiful 6 month old baby girl.
Savannah is one of the most romantic cities in the South. From weddings in the squares to couples dancing in the hidden Savannah gardens. This is my Top 10 List of Romantic Things to do in Savannah.

Along with these squares is the 17 acre Forsyth Park which sits right downtown and is easily walk-able from anywhere in the Historic District.
