The Desoto Savannah

The road to Savannah from Atlanta is a long trek. It’s just under my road trip max limit (5.5 hours in the car), and the drive down I-16 is both treacherous –notorious for having overzealous cops- and boring. While I love Savannah, knowing what the road trip entails, I don’t get there as often as

Garden and Gun Jubilee Day 1

I don’t know if there is a magazine subscription that I’ve had longer than Garden & Gun. I can remember being just out of college and discovering it while waiting at a checkout line at a grocery store in North Atlanta where I lived at the time. Intrigued, I picked up a copy and justified

Sugar Bakeshop

 I have a couple of traditions when I travel: collect matchbooks at restaurants I eat at, buy a book off my “classics to collect” book list from a vintage bookstore, and bring home some foodvenirs, or food souvenirs. On our last day of our Charleston adventure, I told my sister we needed to stop at

Magnolia Plantation, Charleston SC

On my sister trip to Charleston this past June, I had compiled the most intensive itineraries. I wanted to be certain that there would be no shortage of activities to do in case of inclement weather or we tire of shopping so I threw in some things we don’t find ourselves doing typically in Atlanta,

Rainy Day at Zero George Street

I’ve not yet been to Charleston when it rains. However, this past trek to Charleston wasn’t met with such sunshine luck as we had with previous trips and we found ourselves darting between rain drops into storefronts and wading through the market that quickly went underwater during the deluge. When we finally made it to our

The Beaufort Inn

The drive down 20 from Atlanta to Beaufort, SC isn’t really the most exciting. There are a couple of routes you can take from Atlanta to get to this Seaside town but I find that although lacking in roadside attractions, the route through Augusta proves to be the quickest, therefore, my chosen route. After the

Scout Market Beaufort SC

There are a few things greater than well made sweet tea on a hot summer day. I will admit, growing up I didn’t have much of a taste for it- however as I’ve aged, when the sun is scorching overhead the first thing my mouth starts watering for is an ice-cold glass of sweet tea.

Lowcountry Produce Beaufort SC

It’s become a habit of increasing frequency for me to walk into a place and immediately fall in love with the atmosphere. None have struck me quite as intensely as the former post office turned daily eatery like Lowcountry Produce in Beaufort, SC. It’s as if the owners themselves were catering to the fact that

Zero George Street

In Charleston there are a plethora of places to stay and eat at. From AirBnB’s with private gardens, to haunted hotels on King street, and then there are boutique hotels providing more than just relaxation but curating an entire low-country luxury experience for all who cross their courtyard. None do it better than Zero George
