Barbecued pork, fried chicken, okra, sweet tea, fried green tomatoes… Do we have your attention yet?
If southern food is what you dream about, then you will love a visit to Savannah, Georgia to sample the finest examples of authentic southern cuisine. The historic downtown district in Savannah is home to some of the best restaurants in the south, dispersed throughout the neighborhood, alongside unique boutiques and upscale galleries.
On the Savannah Foody Tour, you can eat your way through the historic district. Choose either a two and a half hour walking tour, if you wish to burn a couple delicious calories between stops, or ride the bus for a three hour tour which offers a few more sights in addition to the transportation. Either way, you will be treated to stops at about six area eateries, many locations made famous on the Food Network and Travel Channel, where you will learn tricks of the trade, and sample some specialty southern dishes.
The stops on the tour vary from day to day, but you will enjoy every minute of the restaurants you visit. You may sample collard greens and black-eyed peas, or pecan pie, or biscuits and local honey. All the tours finish with a stop at The Lady and Sons, the signature restaurant created by Savannah’s own Paula Deen, who got her humble start in the food business making and delivering lunches to business people in downtown Savannah.
Wear comfortable shoes, and bring you appetite, for this fun tour that will leave you with a sweet taste of gourmet chocolates, and some wonderful memories.
