Savannah, Georgia

SavannahAfter 5 nights in Orlando, we headed up to Savannah for 2 nights. Neither of us had been there and wanted to check it out.

Our Digs: Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District – great location right next to City Market. It’s an IHG property and I was able to get 1 night free.

Eats: Treylor Park for its tasty cocktails and unique food. Leopold’s Ice Cream for an old-school ice cream parlor that also had a treat for Bruno!

Drinks: In Vino Veritas – a nice wine bar with tapped wines which means the wine is never oxidized so it’s always fresh. We had a mix and match flight with a cheese plate.

Things to Do: The town is very walkable. We did a self-guided walking tour as well as checked out River St.



Charleston, SC

Adam and I have visited Charleston a few times and love it. I even got to live in Charleston when I worked on the Spoleto USA Festival. It’s a charming town with delicious food.

Our Digs: Hampton Inn Mt. Pleasant – Mt. Pleasant is just over the Ravenel Bridge and is a great option if you have a car and don’t want to pay the crazy hotel prices in the peninsula. Plus our pet friendly options were limited

Eats: Where to begin?! This time we ate at Husk, which has been on the list for awhile. MAKE A RESERVATION WAY IN ADVANCE. We ended up going for lunch and everything was delicious. For lunch or something casual, check out Caviar & Bananas. In Mt. Pleasant, Shem Creek has lots of great dining and drinking options.

Drinks: The Gin Joint – relax, not all gin drinks

Things to Do: Shopping on King St., City Market (we love the Rewined Candles sold there)


Atlanta, Ga

For our last stop, we visited Atlanta where my brother lives with his wife and 2 kids. We relaxed and drank a lot of wine for 2 nights.

Our Digs: My brother’s gorgeous new house

Things to Do: The World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, CNN Studio tour, Centennial Park
