A Perfect Weekend – Savannah, Georgia

Pin It


Guest Author: Maureen Gallaher

How could I say no? My friend sent me a ticket so I was off for a road trip again with two pals.

Flew into DC and next stop was Biltmore Estates in Asheville, North Carolina. You Home and Garden fans would love this Vanderbuilt home (while living in Newport, Rhode Island I became a Vanderbuilt groupie). When you go, get the audio cassette-it’s worth it. Ate and sampled wine in the on-site winery. Great stop and wine was cheaper than in California and good. In my next life, I’d like to go back and rent the cottage that comes with a cook and a butler.

On to Savannah and perfect Spring Break weather. Started with the ninety minute Old Town Trolley Tour, waled on River Street and went to the City Market. Ate on the outside deck at Tubby’s on River Street (scallops, chips, fried asparagus and a beer). Then on to a walking Gates and Garden tour which filled in lots of architectural questions and another snack at The Old Pink House and Tavern. Fish tacos and sushi were superb but a walk through the main restaurant made it to my return to Savannah list, “I’ll eat there”.

Next stop Tybee Island about 20 minutes away. Tybee is very laid back beach town but we did tour Fort Pulaski, Robert e Lee’s first post and a must stop for history buffs. Visited friends who live on the island and ate at a funky wharf restaurant, AJs-shrimp and hush puppies.

Left the bubbas and Motored back to Virginia, spending Easter Sunday in Washington DC. The big splurge was brunch at Willard’s Cafe du Parc. It was almost Paris.

Alot of time on the road with friends of twenty five years and great eating. Throw in some good sites and you have a memorable week. Only thing I would change was add some time.

Thank you very much to Maureen, my world traveling sister, for this guest post. You can’t follow her on Twitter ‘cuz she doesn’t really like computers.

    I think Savannah is one of the top places in the country when it comes to food. Ate Japanese there one time, it was pretty amazing. That town has so much good food to offer.
