We took an impromtu road trip to Savannah on Monday and I’m so happy we finally got to see this amazing town. As the oldest city in the Georgia, Savannah still holds on to most of its history in its architecture, in the large oak trees with Spanish moss, and the wrought iron structures that came from all over the world. We ate so much good food and I yelped about it all here at Debby L.   I also made a list of all the places I went to in Savannah so you can check it out here. If you ever get a chance to see Savannah, be sure to walk through all the little niches and you’ll discover some amazing local artists, hole in the wall Caribbean food, and memories to last a lifetime.

 Forsyth Park is a great place to set up a picnic on a warm day, sit under the oak trees and people watch!

The Paris Market in the Historic District has amazing old Parisian things for sale. The outside decor completely caught my eye and I had to make a run through the store  to see what they had, and also grab a macaroon or two! They also have a really cute coffee area inside the market and if I didn’t JUST come from Coffee Fox across the street, I would have stopped in for some coffee here! It’s bookmarked for the next time I’m in Savannah!

The Coffee Fox has great quiches and coffee! We tried the Mexican Mocha and the Horchata Latte. Both are amazingly tasty.

Gotta stop at Paula Dean’s place and see what it’s all about! Butter, of course.

Alligator Soul is one of those restaurants where you tell your facebook friends that you’re going to Savannah, and immediately everyone says Alligator Soul. I ran into a girlfriend at the waxing parlor in Atlanta, and told her I was taking the next few days to go to Savannah. She is pregnant and constantly has pregnant brain….but not when it comes to Alligator Soul! This place did not disappoint at all. The oysters a la soul are something to be reckoned with. The habanero sauce that accompanies the dish brings it just to another level. The Hilbo sauce is the chef’s signature, and it is incorporated into many of the dishes like the ribeye and lamb.

Candy stores are all over the Historical District, so we stopped by the River Street Sweets near our hotel. The praline bites are made in house, fresh, and they let you sample a piece as soon as you walk in. They are quite addicting so don’t be shocked if you walk out with a fresh bag of them to take home!

Hueys on the River is a must do for breakfast brunch. They are located on the riverfront, so you can walk through the whole strip to shop, buy souvenirs, get ice cream…and then have brunch here. The parmesan garlic grits are some of the best I’ve ever had, and the crab cake benedict is hands down my favorite benedict thus far.
