During our move from Florida to Pennsylvania, we decided to make a couple stops and take a mini vacation. By the time we were ready to leave our apartment in Tampa, it was already early afternoon so we decided that our first stop would be Savannah, Georgia. Ironically, the only other time I have ever been to Savannah was during my move down to Florida. We were in a bit of a time crunch due to when our other car and shipping container were going to be delivered to our new home, so this stop only lasted for 12 hours. That was just enough time to pig out on some southern cuisine and get some much needed rest.
We went to Alligator Soul that night for dinner. Located on the basement level of the building, the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. We had the alligator sausage, oysters a la soul, shrimp & grits, and rabbit jambalaya. All of the dishes were pretty rich, and I would happily eat them all again. The service was also great. We were the last reservation of the night, but did not feel like they were trying to rush us out.
We stayed at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. The Mansion is a boutique hotel that features a wide variety of art throughout the hotel and even has it’s own gallery. The hotel is in a convenient location. We took a cab to dinner (their shuttle was down) and walked about a mile to get back afterward. This gave us a chance to see some of the Historic District, passing by so many cute shops along the street. I hope we have a chance to explore Savannah again some time soon!
