Famous Places to Discover Near Savannah

SAVANNAH Georgia — We love the “Old South” and fell in love with those famous places near Savannah as well as the forgotten vacation spots. Whether traveling on a budget or not, Green Palm Inn happily shares quick tips and road trip ideas with our bed and breakfast guests for a romantic vacation, weekend trip, or business travel in Savannah.

Swoon a tad over a few pictures of famous places near Savannah, America’s most beautiful city.  Then, let us know when you’re ready for your trip our way!

If you are a novice traveler to The South and concerned about southern ways and language, Bill Bryson’s advise about visiting a new place may reassure you.

“I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.” – William McGuire “Bill” Bryson

A CAUTIONARY NOTE

There are misconceptions about The South, like the quote below from John F. Kennedy. On your next visit, Green Palm Inn will helped to update our progress.

“Washington [D.C.] is a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm.” - John F. Kennedy, U.S. President

Green Palm Inn B&B in Savannah, Georgia, will showcase not only true southern charm on the Georgia Coast, but the southern beauty, the southern stories, and the northern efficiency — all from our Michigan-native innkeeper.

FAMOUS CONNECTIONS

You may want to consider riding AMTRAK to glimpse the cities with historical Savannah connections.  Remember, we’re storytellers so we love stories that connect Savannah to larger famous American cities — like New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and Boston, for starters.  For example, Daniel Chester French sculpted the bronze statue of Georgia founder General James Oglethorpe in Chippewa Square in Savannah. New York architect Henry Bacon designed the pedestal and base. A few years later Bacon and French teamed up again to produce the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.

We hope you will come soon and often, assured that we will make the proper introductions to what is famous as well as a few of the secrets of Savannah during your stay at Green Palm Inn.
