Sweet Savannah Getaway

At the end of May Clint and I took a weeks vacation and headed to Savannah, GA. We went to Charleston last year and loved it and knew it wouldn't be long before we visited this sister town. We stayed 3 days in Savannah in a loft over looking River Street. It was so nice to be able to step out on the balcony and watch the huge container ships coming and going. And if we got hungry, we just stepped out our door and headed down River Street for some fabulous fresh seafood. The highlight of our time in Savannah was taking a trolley tour and learning all the history and eating at the famous Mrs. Wilkes house. I have never, and I mean never, eaten such wonderful Southern food. A definite MUST for a Savannah Trip.
We spent another 3 days down the road at a B&B on Tybee Island. It was nice sitting on the beach catching up on some reading. But, hands down, my favorite part was renting bikes and riding them around the island all day. It was the best way to see the sights.

I am dying to go and visit this city! Brad got to go for work and insists that I go and I have been to Charleston and he has never been there. I will remember that restaurant for whenever we go! Looks beautiful!
