In Savannah, Georgia, we celebrate together the diverse international cultures that comprise the robust, romantic tapestry of life, leisure, the arts and world food in one of America’s top destination cities. Even the solo traveler is at ease here at Green Palm Inn.
Perhaps the B&B Inn’s historic seamen’s cottages turn our heads more often to the nautical culture — the Savannah River Front, the Port of Savannah harbor, and the impact of international tourism and the flow of international business travelers arriving in the Landmark Savannah Historic District. Whatever the reason, one fact is clear: Savannah travelers and the locals find a world of opportunities to cobble together … for the sheer joy of business life and social leisure in Savannah Georgia tourism!
- February 6 – May 28, 2011. Chittlin’ Circuit Review: Rik Freeman Exhibition, presented by the King Tisdell Cottage Foundation at Beach Institute. The Chittlin Circuit Review is an art series based on “Blues Music”. See also Dr. Walter Evan’s wonderful African art at the Savannah College of Art Museum, located on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in downtown Savannah. An eclectic stop for a splash of art and a Cuppa Joe with dessert, stop in at Gallery Espresso on Chippewa Square.
- March 24-April 9, 2011. The Savannah Music Festival celebrates world music each spring in historic Savannah. Green Palm Inn and the State Street Cottage vacation rental are a brief walk to most Savannah historic district venues. For early cocktails or dinner, enjoy the world cuisine at Alligator Soul. Tap into Savannah’s modern art at the Jepson’s ArtZeum with a light lunch at the ArtZeum Café, or lunch at The Pirates’ House (laced with Treasure Island pirate tales). Or, stop in Harris Baking Co., hopeful that Sam Harris’s Cuban Sandwich is on the menu!
