Sophisticated Soul Food

It’s not often that the words ‘organic’ and ‘local food products’ are synonymous with the South; however, the owners of Alligator Soul restaurant, Hilary and Maureen Craig, are bringing a new spin of healthier food options to the Savannah, Georgia area. Their Seattle, Washington restaurant by the same name quickly made Zagat’s “Best Places to Eat in the Northwest” list, and we’re excited to now have this sophisticated Southern food spot in our own back yard. With their extensive menu offering your Southern favorites and exotic cuisine such as [... more]

Graveyard Shift

Avid readers might remember John Berendt’s New York Times Bestselling Novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil featuring Savannah, Georgia’s very real Bonaventure Cemetery. Even if ghosts and evil give you goose bumps, you’ll find the area’s most famous cemetery a hauntingly beautiful spot to visit. Among the century-old live oaks covered in Spanish moss, lovely details can be found on every tombstone and family crypt as you make your way through the hundred-acre plot. Stop at Gracie Watson’s statue and see if her stone [... more]

The Heart of Savannah

With quaint B&Bs and intimate inns, Savannah has long been a romantic getaway for couples. But once you’ve chosen a hotel, where do you dine?

Be sure to end your evening on a sweet note…I recommend the key lime cheesecake or [... more]

In Good Spirits

One of America’s most haunted cities, Savannah, Georgia, offers many ways to experience its ghostly past. One of the best, the Haunted Pub Crawl, lets you enjoy both kinds of spirits (the supernatural and the thirst-quenching sort) as your tour guide recants the tales of horror originating in the very establishments your libations come from. Sip on a Champagne Cocktail in The Olde Pink House or 1790 Mojito in The 17Hundred90 Inn and Bar. Two hours  and “X” number of drinks later (no judgment), you’ll be amazed at the history you manage [... more]

Artistry, Inside and Out

The Savannah College of Art and Design has famously linked itself to the City of Savannah, Georgia, over the years by transforming historic buildings into new functions for entertainment, student life, and design studios. The new SCAD Museum of Art is no exception. The railroad depot, a Historic Landmark, now thrives as an art community with galleries, classrooms, art studios, a theater, and public spaces. I visited the museum last year and recommend first experiencing it at night. The sidewalk approach gently lights up the path while [... more]
