Savannah Weekend Getaway Day One
Well we are waiting for dinner at the Pirate’s House restaurant in historic Savannah so I thought it would be a good time to catch everyone up on our adventure!
We arrived in Savannah in the late morning and walked right onto to our Oglethorpe Tour bus. For the next 90 minutes, we enjoyed the beautiful historic district with all of the colorful tales of Revolutionary and Civil War (better known as the War of Northern Aggression) history which was amazing for a Civil War buff like myself. At the conclusion of the tour we were dropped off at the City Market and we were famished on this cool spring afternoon.
After seeing the three block line for Mrs Wilkes restaurant, we decided to take in a cafe with great southern cooking. I had Cajun shrimp with grits and collard greens. My wife had a corned beef sandwich and pasta salad. The food was great.
We then walked a half mile looking through shops to the Leopold’s Ice Cream shop and soda fountain, which has been in Savannah for almost a 100 years. Later we went back to our hotel and enjoyed the hot tub. Tonight we are eating at the Pirate House and then taking the Ghost Tour! Enjoy!

I’m new to blog following. I now see your day one adventures which answers part of my questions. I am so excited about my “sister’s week” in Savannah this summer. I’m interested in gathering as much information beforehand as possible. We have rented a cottage in the historic downtown area for the entire week. I think we will be doing a lot of walking every day.
I would recommend the Pirate’s House and Paula Deen for sure. Most restaurants are pricey but the food delivered.
