Bachelor/ette Parties

Savannah is a spectacular bachelorette destination — gorgeous weather, a beautiful downtown, great food, history by the boatload, a hopping nightlife and a large dose of Sothern charm makes it one of our favorite places generally. Here’s the scoop on a bachelorette My Best Friend’s Weekend planned recently for a group of (count ‘em) 23!



Everyone arrived and checked into a house located near Forsyth Park — just on the edge of downtown and within a mile or so of major attractions. A catered low-country boil at the house was followed by a private ghost tour. Creepy but wonderfully led by the crew at Tara’s Tours, there were (purported) ghost sightings for the whole rest of the weekend.

After a leisurely breakfast at the house — the better to enjoy the gigantic dining room and multiple verandas — people headed out to explore downtown Savannah on foot. After walking, the group split up to do a couple different lunches. The Olde Pink House was a hit, as always. Everyone followed this up with ice cream from Leopolds. Then the girls spent the afternoon on a Savannah Slow Ride pub crawl (we needed two pub crawlers!)

After bachelorette games and a sweet surprise for the bachelorette, the group headed to Rocks on River in the Bohemian Hotel for dinner, followed by a late, late night clubbing at Club 51 Degrees.



Everyone managed to regroup for brunch at B. Matthews — the shrimp and grits were fabulous — before heading out for flights home!

European Beaches Still Warm Enough for a Fall Vacation

The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of beach season. Although the temperatures start to dip, there is still plenty of European coastline ripe for swimming and sunbathing well into September. Take advantage of cheaper, off-season airfare and jet to one of these European beaches before fall weather makes its way south.
