Savannah & Charlston

What are the must sees in Savannah and Charleston? Not to miss restaurants in both cities? Are walking tours better than scheduled tours?

My favorite Charleston restaurants (that I am willing to share) are... Dinner -- Peninsula Grill, McCrady's, Fulton Five, Hank's, Anson, Cypress, High Cotton. Lunch -- Slightly North of Broad, Magnolia, Bocci's, Blossom. Breakfast -- Bakers Cafe, Hominy Grill. Drinks -- Charleston Grill, Club Habana, Mitchell's. As far as tours, do a little research and go for a personal tour. You'll get the best treatment from people who really know and love the city in a much more personalized manner.

Hi Pam,

I think the best tour I had was the civil war walking tour in Charleston! I'll send you a file attachment with the highlights of my trip to both cities..I loved them both but was partial to Savannah.

The things I remember from my 1997 visit to the wonderful Savannah are as follows

Savannah ghost walk, and historic walk by Savannah walks

Mrs. Wilks on Jones street, for lunch

The Craft Emporium

Black licorice Martinis where Emma Kelly use to play. The Pirates Nest?

Pam: Spend a day wandering the waterfront area; shops, museums, cafes, entertainment, etc. Spend the second day walking the historic area. Get a walking tour brochure at the Tourist Information Office.The old buildings and gardens are gorgeous. Be sure to wander the old cemetary. Some of the headstones are very old and you will recognize some of the names from your Early American History. Beautiful, beautiful City.
For a not to miss restaurant, go to Elizabeth's. One of the finest dinning experiences in the Country; beautiful old building, excellent service, wonderful food.

Musts in Charleston -

Walk the historic district - Meeting St., Church St., the Battery, Tradd Street and others around there.

Visit the cemetery at St. Michaels.

Check out the outdoor market.

Ft. Sumter is great for the ride out and a must for history buffs, but a lot of the fort was destroyed during the war.

Patriots Point is great if you want to see what a World War II aircraft carrier is like.

There are nice beaches at Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms.

Some will say the plantations aren't as good as in the deep South, but I would visit at least one. Many like Magnolia the best, but I am visiting this for the first time in two weeks. Middleton Place has wonderful gardens, and Drayton Hall is nice for architecture.

Do at least 1-2 house tours. My favorite so far is the Edmundston-Alston House. The Nathaniel Russell House is my second choice so far.

Waterfront Park is nice for a stroll.

Definitely walk the historic area at night too.
