#visittybee | 3 5 9 A.M. Get your caffeine fix in the Starland District, where Back in the Day Bakery, Foxy Loxy and Henny Penny Cafe all serve up a strong cup along Bull Street. If you get your breakfast to go, wander through the bespoke shops, art galleries and record stores in the same area. 11 A.M. Learn your history by walking (or taking a trolley) through the 22 squares in Savannah's Historic District. The city's many museums go the extra mile with exhibits that range from modern art to African-American, maritime and Prohibition-era history. 1 P.M. Lunch time. No trip is complete without trying out the city's authentic eats, which range from traditional to eclectic. For Southern fare, head over to Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room, or try Zunzi's Conquistador sandwich—it was named one of the best in America by the Travel Channel. 2:30 P.M. Shopping spree! City Market is a tourist favorite, where Savannah tchotchkes abound. Visitors can also listen to local music or splash with the kids in Ellis Square's friendly fountain. Next, head to the Downtown Design District, which offers unique home decor boutiques and art galleries. Make your final stop Broughton Street, where local favorites like Paris Market and Brocante, Savannah Bee Company and Leopold's Ice Cream will complete your day. 6 P.M. Take a sunset stroll along River Street. Full of souvenir shops, candy kitchens and monuments (the Waving Girl is a must-see), you can catch the last of the sun's rays while overlooking the Savannah River. 24 Hours in Savannah Just a 20-minute drive from Tybee Island, a day-trip to the heart of Savannah's Historic District is an ideal way to round out your visit.
