Now that you have checked out our highly detailed “what to do map” of the 2.5 square mile “District” of downtown Savannah that is laid out in nine different quadrants above, keep in mind that Lady & Son’s Restaurant is located in map section 1.


Savannah Getaways is pleased to offer over 50 different "Paula Deen Vacation Rental homes" all within a 10 minute walk of Savannah’s most popular restaurant from historic district map section quadrants 1 – 6.

Sea Island Lowcountry Tours, one up-load at a time

As many of our tech savvy customer base here at Savannah Getaways continue to educate us, your basic Smart Phone Ipod, Ipad, Droid or Blackberry is an affordable supplemental resource to your basic Guided Travel Tour here in the Lowcountry. This method of touring has become the alternative platform of choice for our guests along that proverbial road less traveled on their self guided travel tours in Destination Lowcountry.


What could be easier? Not only can you now hop on and off of an Old Savannah Tour Trolley on River Street Witte_208_W_FactorsWalk_218
in historic Savannah, you can walk around free lancing before hopping back on the next trolley.  Discovering the Gullah tradition on St. Helena Island in Beaufort County or exploring old forts, or strolling Civil War Reenactors
 through the French Quarter in Historic Charleston  becomes even better with both touring options. Just download a tour, and off you go at your own leisurely pace while your low country history lesson unfolds.

Paula Deen on Ga. Travel Guide Cover

The Governor's office announced in late January that Food Network mega-star Paula Deen will be the official face of Destination Georgia this year by virtue of her visage along with her son's gracing the cover of the Georgia State Travel Guide. Travelguide-pauladeen
Savannah native (born in Albany, Georgia but moved to Savannah in 1987) Deen has parlayed her distinct brand of down home southern cooking along with her "sassy Southern flare" into a Foody Empire based in Georgia's First City on the banks of the Savannah River, the Landmark Historic District.


The full-color travel guide is traditionally distributed and promoted by the Georgia Department of Economic Development to help promote tourism to the state of Georgia. Arguably there is no other Georgia family like Paula, along with her two sons, Jamie Deen and Bobby Deen who are better positioned to promote tourism to not only coastal Georgia but the entire state.
