If you haven’t noticed a trend by now, it was a top knot kind of weekend in Savannah due to the intense heat and humidity! On Saturday Matt and I woke up early to explore the town and submerge ourself in the culture. After spending the morning walking the streets and popping in and out of different parks, we stumbled upon the cutest, yet modern brunch spot calls The Collins Quarter. Everything is made from scratch and nothing is packaged or frozen and the atmosphere is an overall fun vibe. Every time we walked by, there was a line out the door, which is always a good sign, and the wait was no more then thirty minutes and well worth it. I highly recommend their bloody marys, especially if you can handle some heat. I opted for the avocado smash for my entree and it was absolutely delicious. I think it is safe to say there is not one meal we didn’t enjoy to the fullest.
Later that afternoon we strolled the streets, did some shopping (my favorite shop was The Paris Market, which is basically a storehouse of european treasures) and then grabbed a drink at the Moon River’s beer garden.
While I could talk about Savannah and all we experienced for the next few posts, I am going to sum up the rest of our trip in bullet points below. If you are considering visiting, I would highly recommend checking out some of the places mentioned!
- Tubby’s – We grabbed a drink while waiting for the ferry, this place is on the second floor and overlooks the river. Their peach sangria is a MUST!
- Crystal Beer Parlor – We stopped in here after reading some reviews and strolling the famous Jones street with beautiful homes nearby. It is a nice low key lunch spot with pretty good food, just not as unique. If in the mood for a yummy sandwhich, nachos and a great selection of local beers this is a great choice.
- Circa 1875 – We had dinner here the second night. It is a French restaurant and a good choice if you are ready for something other then southern cuisine. The trout was delicious, but the shrimp/crepe dish we could have done without.
- Cotton Sail House – Perfect rooftop to grab a drink and watch the sunset as well as really fun night life.
- Bohemian Hotel – Another great option for a rooftop to grab a drink and watch the sunset.
- Old Savannah Tours – A trolley ride around the city which was the perfect way to learn the history of everything we had been seeing.
