I spent the day today in Decatur, Georgia. What a quaint little city; a hipster's paradise. From local artist sponsored boutiqes to coffee shops and apothecaries, I'd think it's safe to say that anyone who is relatively hip would be in seventh heaven. After a long hike, we stopped by Victory Sandwich Bar and indulged on our sun fed cravings. After stuffing ourselves, we set out on foot around Decatur to window shop and get a feel for the place.
These intertwined palms are located in the alleyway of Victory's. S.O.S.!!! Even the alleyways are cute and quaint!
Graffiti-like art on the side of a boutique.
Here's a closer look.
An even closer look.... It really is spray paint?
Yet ANOTHER cute alleyway fit for luxurious alley dining. Maybe giving off a sort of island type feel?
Long story short, a day in Decatur is a day well spent. The culture is different from any other place in Georgia that I've ever seen. The people, artwork, shops, and straight down to the alleyways, are quaint, characteristic, and unique, giving off a very relaxing and enjoyable vibe. Besides, how could you not enjoy a place like this when you have beautiful weather and sunny skies?
Savannah is a culturally and architecturally rich town; a true blast to the past. There are centuries of history everywhere you look. Savannah is a fairly centralized place so everything is within walking distance, depending on how far you're willing to walk. Each day we woke up and set out on the town in our stylish Nike shorts and running shoes. What better way to see everything than by foot? Seeing as it's the dead of summer, the days were long and steamy, and our ten mile days were not a breeze, but the culture and elegance of the historic homes and parks made it all worth the exercise. I'd 10/10 recommend visiting Savannah, even if only for the weekend.
Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
A beautiful, historic mansion
Even as we walked home one evening from dinner at the Crystal Beer Parlor , we were still met with the purity of nature as the ancient trees simulated a roof top above the cobblestone street. Only something you'd see in Savannah.
This is the Confederate War Memorial located in Forsyth Park. Palm trees? Sun shadows? Never ending, cloudless, crystal blue skies? I'll take it.
River Street: The ideal tourist location. Also the location of our lunch at Vic's on the River.
