Hooked on Fridays

Today I'm hooked on...

Savannah, Georgia!

The state, not the country... y'all!

Who wouldn't love to live at the end of this avenue of beautiful trees draped in Spanish moss??

I can't wait to have some good ol' Georgia peaches!

We are currently trying to plan our summer vacation and while we know for sure we are going to visit my family in the great state of Florida, I'm trying to convince my hubby that stopping by a few places in Georgia on the way home wouldn't kill us! Plus, we've got some friends who are really, really, really wanting to move to Georgia and I need to brush up on my knowledge of the state.

The very first place I want to visit in Savannah is Bonaventure Cemetery.

Who doesn't want to eat at the Lady and Sons?!?!? I love Paula Deen and I'd probably wait in line for two or three days to eat at her restaurant. In addition to these lovely places, I'd also like to just walk through the history that is Savannah. All the 20 something fountains, the old houses... I can't wait!!

Being so close to the ocean of course we'd have to visit places like Tybee Island and Jekyll Island. Telfair Museum would have to be a stop in our stay as well.

And last, but not least.....

the Okefenokee Swamp!

OK, so it's not exactly in Savannah, but you CAN NOT go to southern Georgia without taking a ride in a swamp buggy! Am I right, folks?!

Today I'm hooked on Georgia, what are you hooked on? Take a trip over to Hooked on Houses to see what other people are hooked on and take part in the Hooked on Fridays blog P-A-R--T-A-Y!! Oooo - oooo!

P.S. ~ Most of the images link to articles so check those out too...if you're interested that is!


  1. What a great post! If I get time later, I want to check out the Hooked on Houses site.

  2. Sounds like a fun place to visit to me! I've always loved Georgia but haven't been for awhile. I'd definitely try to get a seat at Paula Deen's restaurant!

    Thanks for joining my blog party. :-)

  3. Wonderful. I have my eye on Savannah (and Charleston) for a next place to live..., in a few years or so. A warmer climate really..., so if you visit I hope you'll take tons of pictures and post them on your blog!

  4. Sounds like a fun trip! Hope you get to do all those things. Also, good for you for planning your summer vacation now. I am SO not a planner-
    am very jealous of your foresight.

  5. A few years back, my husband and I took a trip to Florida and were lucky enough to be able to spend some time in Savannah.

    Coming from frigid Canada in February we were looking forward to enjoying sultry Savannah. Unfortunately, the weather proved to be unseasonably cool.

    Our memories of the people we met and the places we visited, however, are nothing but warm and wonderful. We fell in love with the city and are hoping to return again.

  6. I love your post! My husband's large family is all from Savannah! They have a special way about them...very southern and great food!
