Road Trip: Savannah

We're headed to Savannah tomorrow.  I may not come back.

Aside from walking around and just enjoying some much-needed time away, I've already decided to fill my yearly butter quota at Paula Deen's restaurant, "The Lady & Sons":

I've heard that the very best place in town is "Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room" - a boarding house from the 40s turned into a family style lunch place.  The line outside starts forming around 10:30am, and the wait can be well over an hour to get in.  Even the President has eaten there:

I love doing the tours, no matter how cheeseball they may seem, because you learn so much and can see the entire area right away.  I always opt for them!

And, of course, we'll cruise by the square where Forrest Gump was filmed :)  They put in the bench just for filming, but this is where he narrated the movie.  I may even pick up some chocolates to eat while we're there.

Yes, the chocolates are a must.

Have you been to Savannah?  Read about it?  Are there any foods there that you insist I try out?  Because we all know that I'll be snapping photos of food right and left :)

Happy Weekend!
