Foodie Road Trip – Savannah, Georgia

A few weeks ago, Jerm and I partnered up with Southeast Toyota and headed north for a foodie road trip to Savannah, Georgia. Our main mission was to get a taste of the Southern food scene but of course, we made it a point to cruise outside the historic neighborhoods to check out the other hidden gems that lied beyond city lines.

As we drove through the antebellum era streets, we couldn’t help but be amazed by the beauty of the canopied roads that were packed full of lush oak trees and ghostly hanging Spanish moss. Once we checked in to our bnb, The Azalea Inn (a Select Registry property just like Black Dolphin), we began to understand the true meaning of southern hospitality as we got to know the  charming personalities of the friendly southerners that reside in Georgia’s oldest city.

Florida Foodie Road Trip – Apalachicola

FLORIDA foodie road trip - apalachicola

After we hit Tallahassee for our last episode of our mini web series for VISIT FLORIDA, Florida Foodie Road Trip, we headed to the Forgotten Coast to check out the food scene of Apalachicola.

This small coastal town is about an hour away from Tallahassee and is undeniably enchanted with old Florida charm. We had so much fun exploring the historic streets and loved immersing ourselves in the local culture and cuisine. From the antique shrimping and fishing boats that lined the docks, to the historic buildings on the overly wide streets, it was almost like this city was frozen in time.
