Spooky Good Times in Savannah!

Wow! My schedule has been super crazy lately with all the travel and therefore, I am just now getting around to my last Thanksgiving post. Sorry to leave ya hanging! I wanted to be sure to share with you a few more things about our visit back home to Savannah. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving (see Thanksgiving post here) and the weekend was certainly no exception. Friday night we had dinner at The Crab Trap on Saint Simons Island to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. I thought the over indulging stopped on Thanksgiving night but it didn't! The Crab Trap is known for their fried seafood and as someone who rarely eats fried foods, it's easier to justify it on the spot when the waitress asks "What will you have, ma'am?" I had a delicious combination of fried shrimp and oysters. I'm sorry I didn't snap a picture for you. We were chatting and visiting and it totally slipped my mind. Oops! Needless to say, we were all stuffed when we left!

The fun continued on Saturday night. After attending a family celebration, we decided to hit downtown Savannah for a Ghost Tour. There's nothing like being a tourist in your own town! Love it! Since my husband isn't from Savannah, he's ALWAYS up for anything "touristy!" We've now tried two of the tours and each one is unique in it's own way. I totally recommend any of the ghost tours in Savannah but especially Oglethorpe Trolley Tours! Be sure to ask for Joan's tour! She's awesome and she just so happens to be a cousin of mine! ;)

After the tour, we headed to the Bohemian Hotel and rooftop bar. It's the best view of downtown Savannah. We noshed on some amazing appetizers-Fried Green Tomato BLT's and Chicken and Waffles-and sipped some drinks while enjoying the view. Here are a few pics of the evening...

Mom and Me before the Ghost Tour. Do we look alike or what?

We had a mini photo shoot in front of this awesome tree. I will spare you and only share one of the pics!
I just couldn't get enough of this beautiful coastal tree!

If you are ever in my hometown of Savannah, please check out a ghost tour and if nothing else, the Bohemian Hotel. You will love it! It was an absolutely wonderful holiday weekend. I can't wait to see what Christmas brings!

Cheers, Everyone! Remember to Eat, Drink and Be Social this Christmas season!


  1. Very fun holiday weekend! Can't wait to see what we can get into during your Christmas visit!

  2. You and your Mom are spitting images of one another!! So cute! :)

    I love Savannah. Use to go there often ... then drive over to Hilton Head Island for a long beach vacation! Jealous!!

  3. Thanks, Aly! I know...we are twins! There's no denying each other! Yes, Savannah is awesome and I miss it dearly. But, until I can return for good, at least it's only a few hours away. It will always be my home!


Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!
