Road Trip Day 1: Savannah

The first stop on our epic road trip was Savannah, Georgia. Savannah is a gorgeous city rich in history and art. In Savannah we mostly walked around in the crazy heat like crazy people and gawked at the city’s beauty. I had worn jeans that day and ended up buying a dress so I didn’t pass out from heat stroke.  Poor planning!

We visited Colonial Cemetery (pictured above) where many of the yellow fever victims are buried along with victims of a duel! The cemetery isn’t the most famous in the city, (that’s Bonaventure Cemetery from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) but it was easy to get to on foot.

Near the cemetery is the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. It’s one of the oldest cathedrals in the south and open to the public. It’s insanely gorgeous and my pictures don’t do it justice at all. I lit a candle for my grandma. I think she would’ve liked that.

The best macarons from Maison de Macarons. The cappuccino was insane.

We also did some antique hunting, ate macarons and took a ghost tour in a hearse! We only had one day in Savannah, but we sure made the best of it. I’d love to visit Savannah again but maybe next time in the fall!

    So did you eat at the ‘Queen of Butter’ Paula Dean’s restaurant? And do me a favor, send me the link to your recipe web page. I am getting your emails, but cant find your cooking page. Thanks, Michael, Atlanta, Ga

    I’ve never been, but it is one of the places I’d like to see. I live in West Tennessee and I thought it was hot and humid here, I can only imagine how much more so it would be there! The heat is always something I come across when reading about Savannah.

      I’d definitely recommend it. Just go during the fall or winter!
