A Quick Peek at Savannah, Georgia-a gem of a place to swing through!

April 16, 2014

It had been years since I visited Savannah, Georgia and I was in a total different state of mind at that point in my life! Savannah is a mini-New Orleans with its own set of mood swings, music options, fantastic weather, and loads of food and bevis to be had! I love the place!

Here is a glimpse of my recent swing through weekend in Savannah, Georgia along with some suggestions.

River Street

Tourist Destination? Yes. Worth it? Yes.

Into strolling through parks for people watching, musical souls of variety, farmers’ markets, etc?

Forsyth Park in Savannah will meet all of those needs! Plus, if you’re into trees, shadows, and Spanish Moss as much as I am, you will dig taking pictures here. Granted, you have to stomach the fact that the Confederate Memorial is also located there; however, as tempted as I was to take pictures of the southerners that was sporting confederate clothing, and painting the rusted fence that surrounds the memorial, I didn’t. It’s a part of our history. It is what it is.

Desire to grab some incredible grub?

I always, always want to try the local establishments wherever I travel, whenever I can. My sister and I decided to check out Narobia’s as it was given incredible ratings for real soul food. Granted, I ended up not ordering the grits or the gravy, but that’s because I’m a sucker for lamb, and despite the fact that I was raised in the south, I’m not real partial to grits. Having said that, soul food is way more involved than what they do with grits. My sister had the shrimp and grits, but I’d have to say that my dish was better. Not only that, it was amazing. I would also argue that they had the best biscuits I’ve had in a very long time, and although I’m not a biscuit eater, I’m pretty confident that if you went there just for the biscuit alone, you would not be disappointed.

Narobia’s is located about 2 miles from the historic district and it a pleasant walk through residential Savannah. Of course, because it’s a soul food diner, it is located in a neighborhood, and not really near anything quite popular yet; however, there is a cheesecake joint close by called Form, and although we were encouraged to come in, we didn’t partake. Also, remember soul food is NOT fast food-this joint is slammed with a waiting list of both locals and tourists wanting to go orders or a table. Be prepared to wait, especially if you are going on the weekend.

Melt in your mouth southern biscuits-worth every calorie and every additional exercise minute I had to do to burn it off!

What if bevis are your pleasure?

Savannah offers way too much to write about here, including haunted pub crawls. We chose to do a little bit of each, but I would say that going to Tybee Island for the 6th annual Wine Festival was a treat and highlight! Although the ticket is pricey, it comes with several food tents, several wines, a silent auction, an escorted golf cart ride from and to your car, live music, all day sunshine, and a chance to hang out with a bunch of wine enthusiasts that aren’t that bad of a crew!

Do you fancy wine? My sister and I enjoying the 6th annual Tybee Wine Festival-it was awesome!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to check out Savannah, if you haven’t already been!

Happy spring everyone!
