Favorite Athens Haunt & Getaway

My favorite Athens hangout was Choo Choo’s Korean restaurant. The food was delicious, and it happens to be one of the first places my fiance’ and I got to know one another.

Savannah and Tybee-Island were always great go to spots to refresh and return to the Classic City ready to take on the world.
