Savannah

Here's a quick pic of us on a family vacation to Savannah, Ga.  It was lovely there and well worth a weekend visit.  I particularly like how it was and is such a planned community, with there being so many public squares (parks) and historic neighborhoods surrounding those (it's very walkable).  Not too mention all of the history of the city from Nathanael Greene to John Wesley to Juliette Gordon Low to Johnny Mercer to Paula Deen.


A few of our favorite things and restaurants were to enjoy a nice tour (carriage or trolley) and a good meal.  Vic's on the River is great for finer dining (especially seafood) as was Local 11ten (where we all had a steak and the executive chef is a NC State grad).  We loved Soho South Cafe (April's fav) and Zunzis (Jeff's fav) for lunch and Leopold's for some "world class" ice cream.  I also really wanted to try the legendary Mrs. Wilke's Dining Room, the Green Truck Pub for a burger, Vinnie Van Go Go's for pizza, Wiley's Championship BBQ for some barbeque, and B. Matthews Eatery for breakfast...but never did.  Also, Tybee Island is worth checking out if it's beach season, visit an art museum or gallery, a historic church, or see a show at the Historic Savannah Theatre, and you can always enjoy the riverfront.

Alas, you can only fit in so much on a weekend!
