Founded in 1733 as Georgia’s first city, Savannah offers visitors a look at southern life with its architecture, charm and soulful food. We started our adventure relaxing on River Street (www.RiverStreetSavannah.com), which offers a wide variety of more than 100 galleries, shops, pubs restaurants and hotels. We enjoyed the River Street happy hour with live acoustic music, a great view of the Savannah River and some interesting people watching. We had our first celeb sighting and just had to take our picture with her (thanks Marilyn).
After asking a few locals for a restaurant recommendation, we decided to try Garibaldi Cafe (http://www.garibaldirestaurant.com/), where I started with the Bloody Mary Oysters and a Raspberry Mojito Martini. After indulging in delicious (and fattening) Lowcountry fare in Charleston, Garibaldi provided a nice change to “comforting Italian” and seafood.
