If thoughts of cobblestone streets, magnolia trees, and southern charm make your heart swoon, you're not alone. Savannah, Georgia has become a popular destination for bachelorette parties, and we totally see why. This picturesque city nestled on the Savannah River has tons to offer brides-to-be and their squads. Check out some of our favorite recommendations!

Where to Stay:
The Bohemian Hotel is one of Savannah's trendiest hotels, great for groups with many premier amenities, and you won't have to go too far to hang out at one of Savannah's top nightlife establishments (more on that in a minute!). Of course there are plenty of other hotel options, but depending on the size of your bachelorette party, Savannah is a great city to book with AirBnb and stay in a unique, authentic, Southern home at a really affordable rate.

Where to Eat:
Savannah is one of the best destinations for seriously delicious Southern food. There are so many great options that it's hard to go wrong, but there are a few places we can recommend that are especially good for groups. One in particular is Mrs. Wilkie's Dining Room. You'll share heaps of tasty eats — fried chicken, okra gumbo, corn muffins, biscuits and more — served family style in a warm, homey setting. Mrs. Wilkie's should definitely be near the top of your list for a bachelorette brunch. For a memorable dinner, try Alligator Soul. It's housed in an old basement grain warehouse and the brick walls are adorned with funky art, giving it a down homey yet rustic vibe. The menu changes seasonally, but you can expect great seafood, steaks, and a few adventurous options like wild boar and ostrich. And what better way to end the night than with a sweet treat and tasty cocktail? Lulu's Chocolate Bar has you covered.

What to Do:
One of the great things about Savannah is its walkability. You don't need to plan your days out; merely taking in the city's sights, architecture, and many squares on your own will make for a fun afternoon (it doesn't hurt that you can drink openly in many areas throughout Savannah — so make some cocktails to go, responsibly of course!). But while Savannah has countless sights to see and great places to eat and drink, you and your group have no doubt all earned a bit of R&R. Head over to Spa Bleu, one of our favorite places for pampering in Savannah. They have a number of different packages, and depending on your schedule you can either pop in for an hour or six. It's up to you!

Where to Party:
Where not to party is the better question, actually. It all depends what you want to do, and there's something for everyone in Savannah. For dancing, Club One and the arctic-themed Subzero Bar are great options in the Historic District. Saddlebags Savannah is one of many places to take in some live music. And Rocks on the Roof is one of our favorite spots. On the rooftop of the posh Bohemian Hotel, Rocks offers an amazing view and some of the tastiest cocktails in town.
