St. Patrick's Day in Savannah!

This year, we ended up in Savannah, GA for some of the St. Patty's Day celebrations. It was one of those things that had been on our bucket list. We actually didn't think that it would happen this year, due to work and busy schedules but then we both were able to have Friday - Sunday off and thought, why not?

Hotel prices were pretty outrages for Saturday, so we decided to stay Friday - Saturday. We asked a friend of ours to join us and found a great deal for The Westin on the river, across from all the action. There's even a ferry to take you to the other side for free.

We took a ferry across the river and arrived at the historic district around 4 pm. The streets were closed of, and everywhere you looked, you saw green. People dressed in green (including us), green water in the fountains, green decorations, green beer... 

We stopped at four or five bars, listened to the different bands at some of the stages, danced, ate and had a few beers.

We had a fun time in Savannah, I drank my first green beer and by the time the last ferry left for our hotel at midnight, we were tired and ready to get back.
