“Featuring grassfed organic burgers, the best damn veggie burger in these United States, and an awesome craft beer selection, Green Truck has gained fame far and wide for their locally sourced, farm to table fare. They make it all from scratch including (quite famously) their ketchup. Stop asking questions and go eat there!”

“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. ”

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.”

“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! ”
