Thanks to everyone for your suggestions here and on Facebook for your Savannah suggestions. We are NOT done with Savannah.
We toured via Historic Savannah Carriage Tours and Felix the horse, we ate at the Moon River Brewing Company. We walked down to River Street and bought saltwater taffy at River Street Sweets Candy Store. Pretty much it.
Thanks to MapMyWalk for the route map. It took about an hour. Here's how we did it:
- We bought our tickets at the Visitor Center on the corner of MLK and Highway 25.
- We parked in the Bryan Street Parking Deck, between Bryan, Barnard, Bay Lane and Whittaker. It cost $5 on Sunday.
- We boarded our carriage at the corner of MLK and Upper Factors Walk.
- We cruised by Johnson Square, Wright Square, Chippew Square, Madison Square, Lafayette Square, Colonial Park Cemetery, Oglethorpe Square, and Reynolds Square.
We waited for the buggy in front of the Hyatt. That's Prince the horse, not our steed.
We could see City Hall from the our bench.
And we're off with Felix in the lead.
We were four and two more joined us, plus shorty the dog.
And it was too much to grok.
There were people everywhere mostly tourists and students I think.
As we rounded Lafayette Square, we caught The Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in this wonderful moment.
This is what I'll remember most. The best thing about buildings is people.
It took about an hour. Time to check smart phones and figure out where to eat.
The knees recommended across the street at the Moon River Brewing Company for late lunch and a sip, very good pub food at a very good price. JoAnn and I split a beer, just right, all genuine smiles.
Taffy beckoned. We took the steps and ramp at East Upper Factors Walk down to East River Street. We took the knee friendly Hyatt elevators back up, not sure if we were supposed to.
