I have fallen in love with yet another city: Savannah, Georgia. Savannah is an absolute dream! It made me so sad to leave it yesterday. You hear all about Savannah and its famous trees hung with Spanish moss, but until you go and experience it, there are no words.
I arrived Friday mid-afternoon so didn’t get to sightsee too much Friday. Headed straight to my friend’s place to drop my things off, and then to drinks! Moon River Brewery was the first stop. It was right downtown by the river, had a huge beer garden, and pretty good beer and vibes. I forget the main street, but downtown Savannah has so much going on! Old school movie theaters, bars, restaurants, rooftops, ice cream parlors, etc. I loved the Friday night vibe! We had a blast going out Friday night and bar hopping.
A tad hungover, but nonetheless ready to explore, Saturday morning I had a bit of solo time while my friend had to work an open house until 1pm. I grabbed a cold brew @The Coffee Fox right downtown, and then went to Rainbow Row first. Just like in Charleston, South Carolina, Savannah has a Rainbow Row: a line of million dollar multi-colored houses in a row. Very pretty, and one of the main trolley stops thru DT Savannah. After Rainbow Row, it was off to Bonaventure Cemetery. UNREAL gorgeous. Spanish moss everywhere over the most intricate graves. Could have wandered there for hours. After the cemetery, I met up with my friend at Wyld Dock Bar. It was this awesome outdoor bar and restaurant on the water/marsh. So pretty, great beer selection and they have bocce ball and cornhole. I whooped his ass, twice by the way. After his loss, we went in search of food and more beer. We ended up at Green Truck Pub. Best pimento cheeseburger ever, and an awesome sour beer, Larry’s Latest Sour Ale. After Green Truck we wandered to Coastal Empire Brewery. Fave brewery ever quite possibly. We (each lol) tried all 16 beers they had on tap. Favorites: dill pickle (sounds nasty but really refreshing), How Now Brown Cow Cappuccino Stout, Pineapple Cranberry Gose. I’m a sucker for Goses these days (fancy word for sours). I had another great one @Dubs bar down on the riverfront later, but can’t remember the brewery name woops.
