My GUide to 

Savannah

EATS

I'm a self-proclaimed foodie + my travels revolve around where I want to eat. It's always my mission to find the neatest spots with the tastiest bites in each city. This is where I get to share them with you!

SIPS

Cozy coffeehouses, craft cocktail bars, trendy tea rooms, local breweries, worthwhile speakeasies and other beverage stops will be listed in this section. What are you thirsty for?

STAY

When I visit somewhere new, I tend to stray away from the drab chains that may come up first in a Google search. Instead, I like to book rooms in boutique hotels, resorts, and Airbnb's with personality! 

GET CULTURED

Besides the normal "tourist traps", each city I visit has spaces worth seeing. I'll list must-see nature for the outdoorsy traveler, stores for the shopper, galleries for the creatives, and more!

it's a gorgeous green with history, a restaurant, tennis courts, and plenty of benches to open a book or to journal

Shop around Starland
