Spring Break in Savannah!

Hi all!!

This spring break, my best friend, Kylie, and I decided to road trip to Savannah, Ga., for a few days.  We drove up on Monday and came back on Wednesday.  That seems like a really short amount of time, but it was actually perfect for us!

We had a lot of fun on our trip!  We ate a lot of really good meals and did lots of shopping!

Food

Here are a few of the places we ate!

The Six Pence Pub

Kylie and I were starving by the time we got to Savannah, so the first thing we did was find some place to eat.  The Six Pence Pub was really good.  I ordered a Reuben, and it was probably the best Reuben I have ever had!  I definitely recommend going to The Six Pence Pub if you’re ever in Savannah!

The Lady & Sons

I was really excited to eat at Paula Deen’s The Lady & Sons! We didn’t make reservations beforehand, because we weren’t sure whether we were going to eat there or not.  We walked inside around six o’clock, and we we’re told that their next available reservation wasn’t until 7:30.  Neither of us were hungry yet, so we went ahead and put our names on the list.  While we were waiting, we did some shopping in the Paula Deen Store right next door.  I bought a souvenir for myself and one for my dad!

When our names were called, we went up to the third floor to enjoy our meal!  I ordered the chicken pot pie! It was huge, so I only ate a little bit of it!  What I did eat of it was delicious! Kylie got fried chicken.  It was also really good!  If  you can get a reservation, I definitely recommend going to The Lady & Sons.

Moon River Brewing Company

Kylie was really excited to go to this restaurant!  She’s a huge fan of the show Ghost Adventures and the show’s host, Zak Bagans.  The Moon River Brewing Company was featured several years ago on the show.  It is believed that a ghost named Toby haunts the billiard room of the brewing company.  It is also believed that one of the ghosts that resides at the brewing company likes to push people down the stairs.  For this reason, patrons of the brewing company are not allowed upstairs.

I was expecting the waitress or hostess to mention the ghosts or the building’s notoriety.  I was really disappointed when they didn’t say anything about it!

Along with the festive ghosts, the Moon River Brewing Company had really good food!  I would definitely go back!

Sweet Carolina Cupcakes

I LOVE cupcakes, so I was really excited to go to this place!  It looked really cute from the outside, and the inside was cute as well. I bought “Sweet Carolina,” their signature cupcake.  Kylie and I had just eaten lunch before we went to the cupcake shop, so I got my cupcake to go and saved it for later.

Later that day, I ate my cupcake and was VERY disappointed!!  The cupcake was very dry and flavorless, and the icing was hard.  I’ve eaten many cupcakes in my life, and I don’t think I’ve ever had one as bad as this one! I threw the entire cupcake away after only two or three bites!

Maybe they usually make delicious cupcakes and I just got one from a bad batch.  Who knows what happened?! All I know is that I was very sad and quite disappointed!!

I would probably give Sweet Carolina Cupcakes another chance, but if I get another cupcake like the first, I definitely would not go back!

Shopping

As I said earlier, Kylie and I did a ton of shopping in Savannah!

One store we went to that I fell in love with was Nourish Natural Bath Products.

Image

The shop was so cute and filled with so many wonderful bath products!

Kylie has been looking for bath bombs for the last few months, and we finally found some at Nourish!  They had a huge display, with so many different scents to choose from!  She picked six of her favorites to take home with her.

I bought quite a few bars of soap while we were there! The reggae sunsplash, vanilla raspberry, and travel bundle are all for me! I bought the Apparition Ale bar for my older brother and the natural soap sampler for my mom.

They have an online store, which you can access at handcraftedsoap.com. I haven’t been able to make the website work on my laptop, but it does work on my iPad.

I haven’t used any of the soap yet.  I’m waiting until I get back to my apartment to do so!  I have a feeling that I am going to LOVE it and will be buying more in the future!

Fun

Because Savannah is known as “America’s Most Haunted City” and Kylie loves ghosts, we decided to go on the Ghosts and Gravestones trolley tour.

Image

The tour involved two different stops!  The fist stop was to an empty warehouse that was the scene of a triple axe murder many, many years ago.  Our tour guide gave us EMF detectors, and let us wander around the building to look for ghost activity.

Image

The red and green thing in Kylie’s hand is the EMF detector.  When the red light appeared that meant that a ghost was near.  When the device was lit, we could ask yes or no questions that the ghost would then answer.  The detector would light up one way for “yes” and a different way for “no.”  We never got to the asking questions portion of the hunt, but it was still fun!

Our second stop was the Perkins and Sons Ship Chandlery.  At this stop, we listened to a man tell a haunting tale from the past.  His story was pretty creepy! It definitely kept with the spooky theme of the tour!

Between stops, our tour guide told us tales about a lot of the buildings and squares we passed.

The tour was scary but not too scary!  I’m kind of wimpy when it come to scary things, so I was very glad that the tour wasn’t to spooky!!

I had a lot of fun on our spring break trip, and I can’t wait for my next adventure!!
