The next time you are in Historic Downtown Savannah, be sure to visit Mabel Francis Potter's Cupcake Emporium.  There, you can find a variety of cupcakes, cookies, and other treasures.  Located in the heart of the Downtown Historic District, they are on E State St near the corner of Bull St.  You can find 12 different varieties of cupcakes baked fresh each day.  With over 50 varieties in all, narrowing those down to only 12 each day can be their biggest challenge.  Your biggest challenge will be deciding which ones to try.  Cupcakes Chocolate Vanilla Strawberry Lemon Red Velvet The King Reese's Turtle Cheesecake Snicker-Doodle Coconut Banana Orange Blossom Buttery Pecan Pistachio and many more Cookies Peanut Butter Heath Bar Crunch Chunky Chocolate Chip M&M Rocky Road White Chocolate Ch...

  One of my favorite Savannah Hotels, and one that I frequently recommend is The Mansion on Forsyth Park. Right across the street from Savannah's 20 acre plus Forsyth Park, a gathering place of locals and visitors this AAA four diamond award winning hotel is in one of the most beautiful spots in Savannah.   Set in a restored 1888 Victorian Mansion, this luxury property boasts 126 guest suites, an art gallery, the Poseidon Spa, 24 hour fitness center, great food and more. Stop by the Casimir's lounge and sip a martini from the rooftop marble patio while taking in the sights of Forsyth Park.   If a picnic in the park sounds better then I feel certain that the attentive staff would be happy to arrange a picnic lunch to take to the park. Have some free time and want to brush up on the local...

    If you’re looking for a condo or town home then you’ll have no trouble finding it in Savannah.  If you prefer something modern with all the upgrades, like granite counters, spa tubs, separate showers and hardwood flooring… we’ve got it. If your tastes lean more towards historic and traditional in nature with historic and Victorian architecture and claw foot tubs and the modern upgrades to boot…it’s here in Savannah, Georgia! The Islands of Wilmington and Whitemarsh are just minutes from downtown Savannah and Tybee Island and offer condos and town homes in every price range, some with marsh and river views, resort style pools and tennis, exercise facilities to putting green. I really like showing what the Savannah area has to offer in condos and townhomes so give me a call or shoot ...
