Ahhhhhh.....Savannah! Such a beautiful, captivating city. We found so much peace walking through tranquil squares and along streets lined with graceful trees. We stayed in the Historic District, near the City Market, which proved to be an ideal launching point. We took a real relaxed approach to our visit and did not try to pound out too many attractions. If you allow it, Savannah is really a city that allows you to unwind and appreciate picturesque surroundings.

We eventually ambled our way to River Street for lunch. Once again, beautiful views of the river treated us. Upon local recommendation, we tried Tubby's on River Street for lunch. Tubby's is a pleasant spot for fairly quick seafood meals. While heavy on the seafood, the menu also has options for those that do not eat seafood. My daughter and I went for the fried shrimp--and none survived the meal! My husband went for the fried green tomato sandwich--nothing remained. I can safely say we enjoyed our meal!

We really loved Savannah and found it to be a great city to explore with our daughter! I understand that River Street can get a bit rowdy in the evening, so we did stay away from there later in the day. We did encounter a couple of panhandlers--so just be aware with kids. My daughter did not even pick up on it. Otherwise we had a lovely time and found everyone so friendly and helpful! I normally do not feel too relaxed after a vacation, but I have to see that taking it easy in Savannah really left me recharged! We did discover a few more places in Savannah which I will share later this week!
