Southern Charm

When my husband suggested a family trek to the city of Savannah. I thought he was crazy. Like nucking futs crazy. But he wore me down with not so veiled hints about Low Country cooking. I like food. A lot. So off we went and heaven's me look at what we found.

We stayed at the fabulous Westin Savannah Harbor Resort. The resort is actually on an island, a ferry ride from the heart of the historic Savannah River District. Gorgeous! Our first night we ate the famed Old Pink House. A not to miss landmark restaurant. Try the fried green tomatoes!

Our first sightseeing venture was a trolley ride thru Historic Savannah. My favorite stop and discovery. SCAD or the Savannah College of Art & Design.

Where I promptly discovered these fab tea towels and letterpress goodies from Belle and Union. How I missed this loveliness at The National Stationery Show is a mystery!

 

We rounded our trip out with the obligatory ghost tour. FREAKY! Some amazing museums and more food. Lots more food. Including a decadent breakfast consisting of the largest pieces of french toast on the planet at Clary's.

In addition to the highly recommended french toast, Clary's is of note - scenes from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil were filmed there.  Other not to miss stops are Angels BBQ and Leopolds Ice Cream

We loved Savannah. Maybe not in the full blaze of summer. It's ungodly hot, humid and the I do believe that the state bird is the mosquito but it sure is pretty and the eatin is awfully good. Next up on our list... Charleston.
