A day near the park
We tried to make it to Mrs Wilke's dining room for Breakfast, but after getting lost and combing the area for an hour, we gave up and ate at another breakfast spot from the book (midnight in the garden of good and evil). We saw the Andrew Low House and spent an hour in Forsyth Park. The park is a definite must. The famous fountain in the center makes for great photos and also a great place to sit and relax. The houses along the sides of the park are beautiful as well. We ate lunch at the Gryphon Tea Room, part of SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). The food was great. The Green Meldrim House was so busy, we never got to see it, despite a second try. We went to Monterrey Square to sit for a while because it was supposed to be especially beautiful, but it really wasn't any different than any of the other squares in Savannah. That being said, any of the Squares are perfect for a relaxing sit while you watch the world go by. They really were genius additions to the city plan. You'll definitely come away wondering why cities aren't designed like this today. The Cathedral of St John the Baptist is beautiful. Garibaldi's was a good meal. I had hoped to hop a few bars after dinner along Bay Street. We skipped Moon River, tried Bay Street Blues, which was relaxed, if a little scummy, but also empty. We also tried Churchhill's Pub, which is a restaurant, not a pub. It was also a bit more upscale that what I had in mind, though they did have a neat rooftop bar that overlooks the city (not the river).
