It’s a city off the coast of Georgia, far from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta, the state’s capital and the southern metropolis that’s put Georgia on the map in the minds of many. Yet Savannah is one of Tony Brewer’s absolute favorite places to visit! It was a real treat when we recently had a chance to work on an event in Savannah. It meant several days in this historically-rich southern city – a getaway right here in Georgia! With cobblestone streets, centuries old facades, delicious treats and of course those romantically moss-covered trees, this coastal city is chock full of charm and it’s no wonder that Savannah and all it’s goodies are among the Stuff We Love! Check out some pictures of Tony’s favorite spots in the city – and make sure you try them out the next time you’re in town!
The Soho South Café is tops for lunch! This is a restaurant and art gallery – can it get much better? Enjoy dishes like Andalusian rice and chicken salad surrounded by art and atmosphere!
Paris Market is another favorite spot. From hand-knit Peruvian toys to vintage Indian perfume boxes – this Broughton Street boutique is an absolute treasure chest of divine decor for kitchens, bedrooms, offices and more. A must see!
Whether you’re sampling regional drinks yourself or simply looking for a great housewarming gift, Matter of Factors has local and regional wines to impress – including the famous Georgia Peach Wine. Amidst all those grapes you’ll find soaps, candles, stemware and other gifts. It gets Tony’s seal of approval!
No trip to Savannah is complete without a stop at this legendary ice cream shop! Leopold’s Ice Cream was founded in 1919 by three immigrant brothers from Greece. Nearly a century later, it continues to draw tourists intrigued by its homemade ice cream. In flavors like frozen hot chocolate, coconut and lemon custard, this ice cream has drawn attention across the country. The perfect treat for strolling through the city on a hot summer day!
Savannah’s got a huge historic district, landmarks, squares and plenty to keep you interested. Let us know the next time you go – we’d love to see your pictures!
