This past weekend we set off for a short but sweet anniversary trip to Savannah. This was also where we went for our honeymoon! It was wonderful. Savannah is wonderful. It is easily one of my favorite places for a short weekend away. It is roughly about 4 and a half hours away from Tallahassee, so it makes for a short drive.
We stayed at The Marshall House, which is in the absolute best location. It is on a main street that made it easy to walk everywhere. We didn't have to get back in the car once, which was the idea. We had a balcony suite so you just hoped out of the window and you could see over the street.
In most parts of Florida, you cannot have open containers in general (Key West excluded). No drinks on the street and you can't take anything to go. So it is always a surprise when I go somewhere and they ask you if you want a drink to go. We had to take advantage! The first night we were there, we grabbed a drink (blue moon for him, and peach sangria for me) and set off to explore.
When we vacation, all I really want to do is eat and mosey around all day. I don't want to do tours, or any real activities. I really just like walking around and picking a place that looks good to go in. Savannah is perfect for that. Their are great restaurants tucked away and always something going on. The locals and tourists seem to mix together and we just love it.
The number one place that I have to go when in Savannah is Gryphon. It is a tea room in the heart of downtown Savannah. We also get a pot of tea and scones. There scones are to die for! If you are ever in the area, stop by!
If you ask Kyle one place he wants to go, he would 100 percent say Zunzi's. This place is amazing! It is a small hole in the wall type joint. A combination of Swiss, South African, and Dutch. It is a little off the main strip and somewhat hard to spot. Just look for the line of people and you found it. After we ate, I think I continued to say this is heaven for almost an hour.
We had a wonderful, relaxing, peaceful weekend full of food, fun, and some really good laughs. This guy has my heart in his hands, and I can't wait to spend a thousand more hand in hand with him. Savannah, we miss you already.
