guest post: crimson kiss.

While Jillian + H are off to Seattle and Portland, I thought I'd share a little about my recent vacation to Savannah. Before we left, I read every chic city guide and knew every blogger-approved spot–but what no one told me was how to build a perfect day in Savannah. While wandering this stunning city was spectacular (and worth the blisters), this little insider's guide will make your adventure a little less hit-or-miss!

 Spend the morning on Broughton Street
For your caffeine fix, The Coffee Fox makes a fabulous cup of joe–or a café con leche, if that's more your speed. Just down the street are The Paris Market and the Savannah Bee Company, both fabulous shops full of little treasures to bring home. And if you work up an appetite window shopping, Papillote is the perfect place for a croque Monsieur or crab and mango tartine.

Stroll down Bull Street in the afternoon

Pop into shopSCAD as you explore Savannah's Spanish moss-covered parks, and when you've had enough of walking, share a bottle of rosé at The Public Kitchen off Chippewa Square. If you haven't read it already (and even if you have), pull out a copy of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and spend the afternoon under an oak tree in Forsyth Park.

Drinks, dinner and dessert
Have a cocktail at 22 Square (the mint julep was heavenly) before dinner reservations at The Olde Pink House–I'd love the recipes for their She Crab soup and shrimp & grits. As the sun sets, stroll along the river before sharing a banana split at Leopold's, or people-watch from a balcony room at The Marshall House. And get some rest, because I think scrambled eggs with grits at Tybee Island's Breakfast Club are in order for tomorrow!
