Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

  • I’ve been going to Savannah two or three times every year for quite a few years, there’s so much to do! I have a full blog post on my blog about Savannah ( http://ladyofthefarm.blogspot.com/2015/07/the-ultimate-savannah-guide.html ) but my absolute favorite places to stay is the East Bay Inn & The Westin, favorite restaurants are Huey’s (Cajun/Creole food that is AMAZING!!), The Boar’s Head (Shrimp Scampi is unforgettable) and of course, B. Matthew’s Eatery(I love the Gnocchi Soup) . I love just relaxing in the squares and especially visiting Forsyth Park for a picnic ( You can find great food in the deli part of the health food store at the end of the park, it’s called “A Brighter Day”). I leave for Savannah tomorrow so I will have to find some more things to do and comment again 🙂 Hope your next trip to Savannah is wonderful!

    I realize this post was from several years ago, but was wondering if you remember where you guys stayed while in Savannah. We are headed there soon.

    Whatever you are drinking during your picnic looks divine! May I please have the recipe?

    I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the visitor center in Savannah. Not only did we love the staff and the info, but we parked our 32′ motorhome there for 3 days. It was busy during the day, but in the morning and evenings, we had the place to ourselves. A wonderful resource for RV’s, the visitor center offers RV parking for $8 per day with no hookups.

  • You barely scratched the surface of Savannah. Missed some great sights and missed the spot where where forest jump sat, FYI there were 3 benches, 1 in in Califonia, 1 is in the visitor center display and 1 is owned by a Savannah cop her got for free when filming ended. For local food you could try Angels (it’s down a lane) or Zuni’s for the southeast champion sandwich. We loved Savannah so much we moved here.

    • Dave, we did enjoy our time in Savannah and we did go to the spot where forest gump sat. We were only there for a couple of days and we will be back! I will have to let you know so you can give us the insiders scoop!

  • If you are looking for some great places to eat … find out where the local police and firefighters hang out. That’s the place to go. I was driving south of Brunswick, GA a few years ago and came across a restaurant that had no less than 4 police cars parked there from different agencies. I honestly thought a crime had taken place. Being curious (OK nosy) I stopped to discover the best family restaurant in Georgia. Bar none … including Paula Dean’s Lady and Sons In Savannah.

  • Feel free to delete this comment. Try not to be be so derisive about “fanny pack tourists”, some of them are your readers and it’s hurtful. I use a fanny pack for lenses when sight seeing. Also, I don’t understand the generalized antipathy towards tourists – we’re all tourists in someone else’ city.

    • Allison, I wouldn’t delete this comment…you are just telling it like it is and we are always up for that! We all travel in our own way and no matter how you slice it, Jason and I are the biggest tourists considering we don’t have a home base anymore. We don’t dislike the fanny pack tourists and like any stero type they are not all the same. I am thrilled to see anyone out traveling and exploring a new area. Sorry to have offended and please don’t stop wearing your fanny pack, I promise to wear one in an upcomming video just as a shout out to you!

        Fanny packs are incredibly practical.

    • Ah, Joanne I can’t wait till you two are on the road! I will finally have a partner in crime!

    The Green Truck is a great little spot for awesome food with a cool vibe.
    The Clay Spot, a great place to have a clay class and an awesome lady who owns it and teaches you.
