While Savannah is most known for it's beautiful historical and Victorian architecture, you'll find other things to catch your eye.
I read about the Cuban Window Cafe before we arrived in the Savannah in the 'Eat It and Like It' blog by Jesse Blanco. Check out his Cuban Window review here. We were very delighted to find this little gem was quite near where we are staying. Carry-out traditional Cuban Sandwiches were our first meal in Savannah. Since then, we've enjoyed their extensive menu often, and have new favorites in Guava Pastelitos, Papa Rellena and Empanadas Cuban-style. Everyone who works there are just terrific and working hard to keep you happy - all in a funky vibe that I love.

Savannah is one of the major cargo ship ports in the country. It is quite impressive to stand on the River Walk and have one of these behemoths glide by right in front of you. Catching sight of the ships is one of my husband's favorite Savannah things. The yellow teacups are a huge sculpture that is on the River Walk in the new renovated power plant area, Plant Riverside. By the way, check out the JW Mariott lobby on the Plant Riverside website. It houses the most glorious natural crystals collection, in sizes I have never seen before.

Well, I didn't drink PBR or go bowling, but I did love the building and jaunty air of Moodrights on Abercorn Street, where you can do both those things - Duckpin bowling to be exact. Pool and Bingo too! I think my retro characters would feel right at home at Moodrights.

There is a lot of wall art and murals in the city and I thought it rather cool to come upon one at the beginning of the venture. I decided my artsy style people would appreciate it fully. SCAD - Savannah Collage of Art & Design - offers many fashion design programs, and I am often taken by the unique stylings people wear.

Savannah continues to be one of my most favorite cities and places to be.
