The Top Stops on a Road Trip to Savannah

Wilmington, Delaware

If you’re traveling from the New England area on a road trip to Savannah, Georgia, then Wilmington should be your first stop. It’s about a six-hour drive, although that can easily change depending on the traffic patterns in New York City and Philadelphia. We recommend booking a room at The Inn at Montchanin Village. The complex features 11 carefully restored 18th and 19th-century buildings in a beautiful suburb of the capital city. This AAA 4 Diamond Award-winning property is a safe and relaxing place to stay, especially for single female travelers. Krazy Kat’s Restaurant is also a fantastic on-site dining experience. 


Of course, there is a handful of other things to do and places to eat while you’re in town. The stunning Nemours Estate is a great place to stretch your legs and gaze at the ornate home and gardens, and Brandywine Creek State Park provides a quiet place to go for a run right around the corner from the Inn.

Richmond, Virginia

The next stop on your road trip to Savannah is Richmond. The capital city of Virginia has plenty of great lodging, but we recommend The Berkeley Hotel. This boutique hotel features plenty of luxurious amenities in its rooms and has on-site dining options. You can also walk to many other great restaurants in the downtown area. There are also several ways to explore Richmond, starting with taking in the beautiful riverfront scenery from Belle Isle, which is about a 30-minute walk from the hotel.  

Latta, South Carolina

The final stop on your road trip to Savannah is in Latta, South Carolina. This quaint and charming town is home to our beautiful Inn. Abingdon Manor is the perfect place to take a break from the traffic and hustle on I-95. Our kitchen serves gourmet fare made with local ingredients in our elegant and intimate dining room. Make sure that you call ahead to book a reservation for our nightly seating at 7:30 p.m. Rest your head in one of our seven well-appointed rooms for a fantastic night of sleep before waking up to a delicious breakfast
