|Freight ships headed inland on the Savannah River.|
1. My parents lived there for four years after I left home, so it has always been a nice vacation-y destination where I had the opportunity to gain an insider's familiarity.
2. Because of the tourist crowd, and the presence of a major art school, there are interesting restaurants and a variety of bars and gastropubs.
3. There is also a great art scene, and a local movement for approachable and affordable art that is so welcoming.
3. The whole of downtown is walkable and scenic.
4. The history of Savannah is unique and so quintessentially American that you learn some fascinating new tidbit every time you visit.
We spent four days in Savannah last week. I had client meetings for a major shipping project that kicks off next month, and as soon as I put them on the calendar I decided to take my family along. So here are some photos, mostly of beer and my son. We didn't do much of the historical stuff this time around, not because we are charlatans but because we did the graveyards, squares, churches, and museums to DEATH on a visit with my parents last fall.
|As soon as we start taking bags to the car, W gets excited.|
|Almost immediately after arrival, we walked over to Moon River Brewery. They have a new "summer porter" that I was dying to try, and it was so light-bodied and toasty!|
|Moon River also has an enclosed and shaded biergarten with outdoor games, including this oversized Connect Four set.|
|My little guy :)|
|Nate was busy working his way through the different taps, so I decided to try something lighter. This is their unfiltered witbier, and it tastes just like summer.|
|The view from where we ate, on the balcony at Tubby's Fish House.|
|I would also like to add that my son ate an entire order of fish and chips and loved every bite. Who knew?!|
Hope you guys are having a great weekend!
