Savannah Trip Recap

Tuesday, March 10, 2015



As you know, I went to Statesboro and Savannah over the weekend to spend time with my sister, and boy was it a blast. My mom and I had appointments on the way down to Statesboro on Thursday, so it was a long day for us. Once we got to Statesboro, we made a delicious salmon and Thai cucumber salad for dinner and got to catch up with my sister over some great wine and cheese. The next day, we drove down to Savannah and had one appointment in the morning. During our appointment, Anna sipped on a chai tea latte at The Paris Market on Broughton Street, which is the most adorable store by the way. They have the cutest home decor, jewelry, and accessories. After the appointment, we checked into our hotel, the Andaz Savannah. The hotel was so chic and we even got a free glass of wine on our arrival. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone looking for a hotel with a great location. It was across the street from River Street and 2 blocks from Broughton Street, so we could walk to everything. After check in, we shopped around and I bought some things I definitely didn't need but couldn't pass up. We stopped by The Savannah Bee Company and did a mead tasting. Before Friday, I had never heard of mead. For those of y'all who don't know what it is, it's an alcoholic beverage fermented with honey and water. I love sweet drinks so this was right up my alley. The tasting was only $5 and we got to try 5 different meads, although the pours were very small. We also got to try different types of honey and picked some up to take home. After a long day of walking and shopping, we decided to pick up food and eat in the room because we were all exhausted. We got burgers from B&D Burgers and they were the best burgers i've ever had, not to mention the sweet potato fries were to die for. We ordered the Wormsloe, the Forsyth Park, and the Whitefield Square with a chicken breast instead of a burger patty. They were all delicous, but I think the two burgers were my favorite. 




On Saturday morning, we went to The Funky Brunch Cafe. My sister had heard of this place from one of her friends and had been wanting to try it. It wass so cool, you get to make your own pancakes on a griddle built into the table. How awesome! They give you a squirt bottle so you can write and draw with the pancake dough to make anything you want. You also can get toppings for the pancakes. We went with blueberries. The pancake dough made about 6 small pancakes so we also ordered the Farmer's Market omelet and the Andouille Scrambler. We all shared and the sizes were a little small but it was the perfect amount of food for us. 



After brunch, we headed down to River Street to see the Sweets on the Street festival. The thing I love about Savannah is that they don't have open container laws so I got to enjoy some cold beer and bloody mary's while browsing the vendors. We hung out on River Street most of the day just soaking in some beautiful sunshine and enjoying each other's company. 







After being on River Street for a while, we wanted a change in scenery and decided to take a drive down to Tybee Island. We were only 20 minutes away so why not? We had leftover cheese and wine from the nights before so we had a picnic in the dunes. It was a little windy, so more blankets would of been nice but we just huddled together for warmth. Overall, the weekend was a prefect little getaway and I will definitely be making this trip more often in the future since it isn't too far and it gives me more of an reason to go visit my sister in Statesboro.
