“Best burgers in town! Everything, including the ketchup is homemade here. Choose from a veggie, beef, or chicken patty cooked up in all sorts of tasty ways. Hand cut fries are not to be missed. Salads and other goodies too, and an awesome beer list round out the fun at this local favorite. ”

“What can I say? Leopold’s is an institution in Savannah. At their busiest times, you’ll find yourself waiting in a line all the way down the block, but it is so worth it! Dozens of homemade flavors that change weekly, they’ll let you sample a few before you decide - decent sandwiches, too. ”

“Interesting blend of coffee shop favorite with tex mex lunch/dinner options. This place is incredibly popular, a big reason being that it's in an old historic home. Enjoy this comfortable interior or sit outside in their secluded courtyard.”

Bakery

“I love this place. One of the best bakeries I've ever been too world wide. The biscuit breakfast sandwiches are amazing so are all the pastries. Open Thursday to Sunday only until 3pm. They sell out and often have long lines, but well worth it.”

“Mrs. Wilkes’ Dining Room is located on one of the most elegant streets in Savannah. Jones Street runs through the center of the Historic District lined with moss laden trees and paved with cobblestone and near the trendy shops of the Design District. It wasn’t until 1987 that Mrs. Wilkes consented to a sign out front. She made this place somewhat of a legend, and her family is keeping it a family affair, continuing the tradition of fine Southern food.”

“One of our favorite places to watch a sunset, The Savannah National Wildlife Refuge is a breathtakingly beautiful place just north of Savannah. While the Refuge is massive and includes parts of Georgia and South Carolina, there is also a four mile loop that can be driven by car. You'll see all sorts of wildlife including lots of alligators, great blue herons, and seasonal bird life. Spottings have also included bald eagles, bobcats, coyotes, gopher tortoises, and snakes! ”
