If you’re lacing up for Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah, you likely have prep meals and running playlists on the brain. But where do you plan on resting up afterwards? Think a bit farther than your finish time and find the perfect place to rest your weary legs. These five Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon picks boast stunning downtown views, easy-to-find parking, and allow you to get the most out of your weekend activities.

Here are five “marathon-approved” vacation rentals that are perfect for resting, exploring, and enjoying the beautiful Hostess City. Lucky you!

1. York Street Condo 302

Not only is this location close the starting line on Bay St, but you’ll be steps away from a colorful palette of local foodie favorites such as The Collins Quarter, an Australian restaurant with a delicious brunch menu and great outdoor seating.

Or enjoy the fresh ingredients of Tequilas Town and guac made by your tableside with a fresh take on Mexican cuisine. Want to spend an evening in? Enjoy the building’s own rooftop deck with outdoor dining tables, adirondack chairs, two gas grills, and the gorgeous views of Savannah. 

2. The Urban Oasis

When you’re ready to start your day, your biggest decision will be which direction you’d like to start walking, as this home is close to virtually every downtown attraction. Enjoy brunch at nearby Goose Feathers Cafe before heading out and exploring the downtown area.

Next, hit up a narrow, cosmopolitan storefront eatery to satisfied your pho cravings and other signature Asian noodle dishes. Flying Monk even offers vegetarian and gluten free options.

Continue exploring the nearby area for local shopping, restaurants, nightlife and more! Did we mention this too is close to the starting line on Bay St?

3. The Parker Collection

This serene oasis is located in the heart of Savannah's historic district, just steps away from Savannah’s shopping and nightlife. This beautifully renovated apartment is located behind Parker’s Market Urban Gourmet. Also known as “Fancy Parkers” to locals, a quick trip will provide you with everything from fresh flowers to a three course meal, complete with dessert (try their Tiramisu!). Another great perk, it’s located near the finish line by Forsyth Park.

4. Southern Comfort  

Nothing says Southern Comfort like enjoying the evening air with a glass of sweet tea on your front porch. Just a few blocks from the finish line, this pet-friendly home has everything you’ll need for a restful weekend getaway.

Did we mention non-metered parking? This unit has free, on-street parking right outside the front door. Former guests have not reported trouble parking near the home, even on the busiest of weekends.

5. Parkside Proper

But wait?! You have a big party coming? No worries, we’ve got you covered.

It's called Parkside for a reason. A one minute walks will place you in Savannah's largest public green space, perfect for a picnic, a jog, or taking the kids to the best playground in the city (and everyone can catch you at the finish line).

You’ll be a few blocks away from local favorites such as the Sentient Bean to satisfied your cup of joe needs. Take a stroll down the Starland District and discover the aroma of the famous Back in the Day Bakery with its homemade cupcakes and sweet treats, buttermilk biscuit sandwiches, or grab a slice of homemade quiche--the possibilities are endless.

Hope to see you soon!
