A true Savannah institution, Leopold’s Ice Cream has been scooping up pure delight since 1919 and still sports the original black-marble soda fountain. Candlelit tables, streetfront views, and Southern-inspired cuisine draw visitors and locals alike to Local 11ten. Be sure to visit the Tiffani Taylor Gallery to see the SCAD grad’s ethereal watercolor paintings, inspired by nature.
From shopping to dining to history lessons, Savannah offers endless options. Save the air fare, and tour the world at The Paris Market and Brocante, where the owners have collected amazing finds from their travels around the globe. At Satchel, you’ll fall in love with leather goods ranging from purses to guitar straps. Need a little fuel for your adventures? Pick up a pulled-pork sandwich from Wiley’s Championship BBQ or a slice of Chocolate S’more pie at Back in the Day Bakery. Or enjoy an alfresco meal of new Southern cuisine at The Olde Pink House. Goose Feathers Cafe offers a great lunch, but they also serve breakfast items all day.
And if you’d like a quiet respite from your busy day, the Gryphon Tea Room is the perfect spot. History buffs can drive under a canopy of live oaks to Wormsloe, a colonial-era estate, or learn about Savannah’s rich and storied past at Massie Heritage Center.
