TGS Travels: Savannah, GA

We recently took a road trip to Savannah, GA for an extended Memorial Day Weekend.  We spent a day in Savannah in January, (more about that here) and we were excited to have the opportunity to go back to work and play hard in the beautiful city.  Take a look at some of the things we did while we were in the Hostess City:
We had dinner on the rooftop of Zunzi's 2.
Enjoyed lunch at Vinny Van Go-Go's in City Market.
Savannah has 22 beautiful squares in the heart of downtown.  We walked for miles exploring each square.
City Hall is beautiful.  Check out that roof!
We took a walk down Jones Street, which Southern Living calls "America's Prettiest Street."
We had drinks at Rocks on the Roof at the top of the Bohemian Hotel.  It had beautiful views of the Historic District and the Savannah River.  
We attended mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.  The cathedral is breathtakingly beautiful.   
We enjoyed brunch at Gryphon Tea Room.  
We visited the Wormsloe Plantation.  No picture can do the this 1.5 mile oak avenue justice.
For Memorial Day, we made the 25 minute drive to Tybee Island.  Our first stop was lunch at Tybee IslanSocial Club.
It was a somewhat dreary day, but it didn't stop us (or tons of other folks) from going to the beach.
We spent a few hours in Forsyth Park and walked the perimeter to look at the beautiful houses that surround the park.
 We had a great meal at Public Kitchen.
Leopold's was recommended to us by every person we spoke to in Savannah.  It lived up to the hype!
We met Stratton Leopold, the owner, while we were there.  In addition to owning the ice cream parlor, he is Executive Vice President of Production at Paramount Pictures.  He has produced and worked on films such as Mission Impossible, Captain America, and The Sum of All Fears to name a few.  
We wrapped up our trip with breakfast at Goose Feathers before heading back home to Mississippi.
Have you been to Savannah?  If not, we suggest you plan a trip to this beautiful, Southern city.

Take care!
