That time I fell in love with Savannah, Georgia.

May 15 to 19, 2016 - Trip to Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, North Carolina

I know, I know. I apologize, it has been an eternity since I’ve updated my blog. You know, life just gets so hectic and we tend to forget the important things :) But I am back today because I miss Savannah and I thought, well, let’s post about it and then I can vicariously live through my past self! I’m hoping to get to go back soon and explore even more than we did the first time. I just felt like Savannah had a lot of hidden secrets…

Also, one of the reporters at work came up to me the other day and said “hey, thanks so much for that travel feature you wrote and shot last year, I had never even heard of Savannah until I read your piece and decided to go!” So I thought, heck, I should probably post some photos up on the blog, maybe I’ll inspire someone else to go visit this magnificent town.

Great places to eat – and there are so, so many so by all means this is not an exhaustive list of yummy digs:

THE GREY –

 

SANDFLY BBQ – don’t even think about the amount of calories you are engulfing… because this place is food heaven.

 

COLLINS QUARTER – a little ashamed to say in a city with so many food options, we just had to eat here twice. We couldn’t help ourselves!

 

BACK IN THE DAY BAKERY – oh this place was gooooooooooooooooooooood

We stayed at the Brice hotel and basically never wanted to leave. That courtyard, those twinkle lights… definitely my kind of place.

There is just so much to see in Savannah even though it is a relatively small city. It is a city that beckons you to get lost in it and roam the streets almost in an old-world fantasy. You can just feel the history of this place as your feet brush the seashell encrusted streets (called Tabby concrete).

 

Oh and those squares, trees and parks…
