Oh Savannah, what a quaint little fun city you are. Last weekend Andy and I went to Savannah, Georgia to visit Andy’s brother who lives down there.
This was my first time in Savannah and I really enjoyed everything it had to offer. Savannah is a small city with a big history. It is said to be one of the most haunted cities in the US! Because of it’s age and history there are a ton of cool little restaurants, bars, and inns lining old cobblestone streets along the Savannah River.

Hey there lovelies. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. We had a great time in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
We stayed there for two nights before our trip to Savannah since it’s only about an hour away. The beaches were beautiful…soft sand, warm water, and a low tide that gives you plenty of space to spread out.
But let’s get to the good stuff…what we ate of course! I thought this would be a much more appealing What I Ate Wednesday post than my normal eats. Thanks Jenn for hosting!
As usual, we pretty much relied on Yelp to steer us in the right direction for most meals. That and also the convenience factor is what brought us to each place.
Our hotel had an awesome beach bar and restaurant called the Tiki Hut. They had live music all day and night and had some pretty good burgers surprisingly for a beach bar.
Mine came with mushrooms, onions, bacon, and Swiss. Don’t you worry I did remove the bun! The salad it came with was great for being a “side salad.”
The first night we ended up being a little late for dinner. Hilton head doesn’t seem like it’s too hoppin’ late night so we needed somewhere close. We heard live music across the street and decided to check it out (after a quick Yelp check). It led us to Bomboras Grille and Chill Bar. Continue reading
Vineyards are one of my happy places. There’s just something about them. They’re beautiful, peaceful, and produce one of my favorite things – wine! I am even lucky enough to have two beautiful vineyards in my own home town in Connecticut.
So when I learned that there is a whole slew of vineyards on the east end of Long Island, it quickly moved to the top of my summer bucket list.
Coming from Connecticut it was super easy to catch the ferry from Bridgeport to Port Jefferson, New York. From Port Jefferson we drove East for about an hour on Route 25A to get to the beginning of North Fork Wine Country. North Fork Wine Country refers to a few different towns sprawling with farms and vineyards…a total contrast to the dense and compact Nassau County on the Western part of Long Island.
Our first stop was an organic market to grab some cheese and crackers – an essential when vineyard hopping.
It was the cutest little barn with fresh produce and even local cheese.
Our first stop was at Kontokosta Winery, the furthest East of the Vineyards and one of the only ones with a waterfront view.
This winery just opened last year.
The inside was bright and open. The staff did a great job of really educating us about each wine. Continue reading
