In October we took a rode trip to Savannah. We really enjoyed this trip. We saw a lot of new and interesting things along the way. We spent one night in Macon, Georgia before we reached Savannah. Savannah is a neat place full of southern hospitality.

The number one purpose of the trip was to visit the Lady and Sons restaurant. We stayed in a hotel near the river in downtown Savannah. We did a lot of walking. We took the Paula Deen tour and had lunch at Bubba's. We met Bubba before leaving his restaurant.

We had dinner at the Lady and Sons. We didn't met Paula but we did visit with her sons, Bobby and Jamie. 

We had lunch at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House. That was the best food I have eaten. You just can't bet southern cooking.

Savannah is home to one largest National Landmark Historic Districts in the United States. This 2.5-mile district, which runs from River Street to Forsyth Park, features plenty of quaint shops, charming boutiques and many restaurants nestled beneath a canopy of Live Oak trees. The city is full of Georgian and Victorian architecture. Southern hospitality still reigns supreme in Savannah, a city with three centuries of history. You can stroll down cobblestone streets.

We walked through many of the neighborhood parks and we shopped the unique shops. We took a midnight ghost carriage ride. That was interesting and fun. We rode the trolley and visited a small farmers market.

Drove out to Tybee Island and walked the beach. We visited one of the lighthouses. Tybee Island is located just 20 minutes east of downtown Savannah. Savannah's Beach feels worlds away. This quaint beachfront community has been known as “Savannah’s Beach” for decades. You can enjoy the views of the Atlantic Ocean. There is five miles of public beaches. You can watch the pelicans soar overhead and Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin frolic just offshore.

It was a fun trip and we sure ate a lot of really good food.
