At Mrs. Wilke’s Dining Room, locals and tourists alike don’t mind the wait as they sit elbow-to-elbow family-style, devouring succulent southern fare, such as fried chicken, okra and homemade biscuits that are to die for. Mrs. Wilke’s does not accept reservations and opens at 11:00 a.m. each morning for lunch only, so plan to arrive early.

A plethora of unique shops, boutiques and antique stores are scattered throughout the downtown area, so plan on bringing your walking shoes.

Whether it’s by horse drawn carriage, pedi-cab, or trolley, there are numerous ways to take in all the downtown sights. We love Carriage Tours of Savannah.

Or, let us help you make arrangements to have Carriage Tours pick you up in front of The President’s Quarters Inn. When you return, we’ll be waiting to greet you with a warm, southern reception.
