After a jam-packed school year and not enough home visits, my best friend and I packed up the Jeep and headed off on a week long road trip to our favorite southern charm-filled cities: Savannah, Charleston, Chattanooga, and Atlanta. Although we didn’t actually get to stay in Savannah during this trip, we still count it as one of our destinations because… well because it’s always one of our favorite stops–whether it’s three hours or three days!
After five hours on the road en route to our first (actual) destination, lunch time called for a quick detour in to Savannah.
Although this cute coastal city of Georgia deserves way more than just a three hour visit, I will admit that it was definitely one of my favorite stops during our trip (as always).
Thanks to Savannah locals for introducing The Public Kitchen & Bar; I will never forget the heavenly taste of their DELICIOUS club sandwich and pasta salad. I’m basically salivating just at the thought of it, hahah. But if you do ever find yourself in Savannah, be sure to check this place out for a good lunch! 🙂
Aside from the meal, the atmosphere in the restaurant was just great! Especially with its cutesy (yes, it’s a word) midcentury-modern decor. #winning
After lunch, we knew we couldn’t leave Savannah without stopping into all the boutiques and little shops in the area. Also, we needed to walk that meal off before driving for the next few hours!
There’s just something about supporting local that I can never pass up when there is one. No small business is the exact same or has the same mission. But they do tell a lot about a place and the people who live in the area.
Plus, you can find some of the cutest things that you would never find in any other chain retail store. And yes, same goes for restaurants. Sometimes the hole in the walls, mom and pop restaurants, and local places will give you some of the best meals you’ve ever had!
But after walking through several shops and having a great lunch, we had to get back on the road if we wanted to make it to our next destination!
Don’t worry Savannah, we’ll come back soon! We always do. Until then, here’s where we ended up next on our road trip!
