First stop……Leopold’s Ice Cream, Savannah, GA

Founded in 1919!

We couldn’t drive through beautiful Georgia without visiting one of the most famous ice cream shops “Leopold’s”. We enjoyed a large scoop of ‘Chocolate Chewies & Cream’ and ‘Mint Chocolate Chip’.

Leopold’s was opened originally in 1919 by the Leopold brothers, and now run by Stratton and Mary Leopold.

We were greeted as soon as we stepped in the door and offered samples of their delicious flavours. After ordering we looked at all the posters…did we forget to mention that Stratton Leopold is a famous hollywood producer…it was sooo cool! It was so inspiring to see someone so famous made time to keep the family business and make it the success that it is today.

It was such a treat to sit inside this busy iconic ice cream parlour.

Time to explore the rest of Savannah…..such a beautiful city!
