Your Quintessential Day in Charleston and Savannah

Warm Greetings 'Hounds :)

The first week in March, my husband, four year old ChowPup, and I will be heading down to Orlando for some Disney action. Initially, we were going to fly into Tampa and spend a few days before our meeting with the Mouse, but on a fluke a few days ago I was reading these very boards and my mouth began to water over many of the posts I read about fried green tomato sandwiches, fresh shrimp, collards, hoecakes, gullah specialities etc.

So... I switched up the plan, and now this little New York family will be flying into Charleston, driving down to Savannah, and then onto Orlando. We only have 1.5 days in each city, and really want to use our time wisely. I've read over quite a few old posts and have a general sense of what the good places are, but my question, more or less, is how to combine them to realy get an authentic representation of each of these city's culilnary jewels.

So, if you could plan the perfect culinary day in both of these cities- breakfast, lunch, dinner, and of course a snack or two ( we've been walking 5 miles a day for the last six weeks in anticipation of this calorie-explosion, so don't hold back!) where would you go? We love the local places, generally eschew things that are too touristy unless it's for good reason, and have no problem with backroads, out of the way spots, or places that are not pretty. So, translated- we'll go ANYWHERE for good food!

Many Thanks and Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy, and Delicious New Year,
