Song, Song of the South.

I love the South, the fried chicken, the biscuits with gravy, the music, the twang, the people, the porch swings and the fact that mac & cheese is considered a vegetable. Savannah embraced every aspect of the South that I love and I promise you'll love it too. If you have the opportunity to visit, I have created a, "how-to-see-Savannah-in-three-days" guide below. Ps. Put your cute shoes away and wear your walkin' shoes, trust  me.

Day One. 

•Relax, chances are you had a long drive or flight and your going to need to save some energy for the next three days. 
•Grab a quick acai bowl from Beetnix downtown
•Stop by the concierge for the local maps, make yourself comfortable with the town layout so you don't waste any time this trip
•Explore, visit a few of the 24 "squares" that make up Savannah 
•Grab a bite to eat at Treylor Park (loaded nachos or fried chicken pancake tacos) and a cocktail (the recliner) 
•Head to River Street, walk the beautiful fossilized oyster shell streets and grab a hot praline sample
•End the night with Willies, your choice of 18 adult slushies and walk home (no open-container law) 
•Get some rest, tomorrow is a big day!  


Day Two. 

•Start the day with a protein packed 
breakfast (room service anyone?) 
•Head to City Market for shopping, dining and live music 
•Stop in at the famous Byrd's Cookies (Georgia Peach, Scotch or Key lime) 
•Grab some organic treats and toys for your favorite pooch at Woof Gang Bakery 
•Treat yourself to a "to-go" Georgia Peach Sangria at The Cafe
•Sit back and enjoy the live music 
•Grab a slice of Vinnie Van Go-Go's or head back to River street for Spanky's, home of the original chicken fingers 
•Visit the three pastel colored homes on 508 E. Bryan St. 
•End the day with Leopolds icecream 


Day Three. 

•Start the day off at Slyvester & Co. or Back in day bakery for a coffee and pastry 
•Head to the Wormsloe Plantation, a mile and a half road lined with 400 live oaks (The Last Song was filmed here) -it's $10 but totally worth it, hike through the ruins of the old plantation home
•On the way home, stop at a produce stand on the side of the road for a real authentic Georgia Peach 
•Back in town, eat at Hitch, the sister restaurant to Treylor Park (fried chicken apple pie sandwhich) 
•Visit Juliette Gordon Lowes house (founder of the Girl Scouts) and get a $2 box of Girl Scout cookies
•Visit the Old City Exchange Bell or Chippewa square, where parts of Forest Gump was filmed
•Head to Sweet Potatoes for dinner (man vs. food best banana pudding) 
•Attend a ghost tour, after all, Savannah is the town built on the dead


That's it, you just saw Savannah in three days!! 
Thanks for stopping by!!
