If there’s one word that captures the aura of Savannah, GA, it’s enchanting. From the garden squares filled with towering oaks draped in Spanish moss to the grand, historic homes lining cobblestone streets, the “Hostess City of the South” will captivate you with its laid-back southern charm.
The Olde Savannah Inn Bed & Breakfast
What to Do: Let the rhythmic “clip-clop” from a horse-drawn carriage ride take you back to Savannah’s historic roots as you enjoy a leisurely tour through the largest National Historic District in the U.S. It’s also where the 22 garden squares, called the city’s “heart and soul” by some, can be found. Designed to be an essential part of the downtown area, these squares provide a relaxing tree-covered area to stroll or relax while reading the paper by cooling fountains, lush gardens, and historical monuments.
Follow the cobblestone streets and southern hospitality to the waterfront of the Savannah River. River Street is a destination for quaint storefronts and fine-dining establishments built inside centuries-old buildings that once housed goods in one of the busiest ports in America. You can even set sail down the Savannah River and catch a glimpse of the city skyline from aboard an open-air canopy deck on a riverboat.
If you make your way to Savannah this month, don’t be surprised if you find the Forsyth Park fountain flowing green! "The Greening of the Fountain," taking place on March 8th, is part of the city’s massive and long-standing St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Last year, Savannah hosted the second largest St. Patrick’s Day parade in the world and began the celebrations as early as two weeks before. If you’re in town Saturday, March 16th, go green for the 189th Annual Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade.......
