SAVANNAH, Georgia — The Port of Savannah’s competitiveness  strives to be known as the “first port”* — the first port of call for inbound ships, arriving in the United States of America with loads of goods from world ports.  That’s the reality during the 18th and 19th century days of sailing ships and in today’s commercial, international shipping.

That eagerness by Savannah, Georgia, to be “first port” holds true for USA tourism as well!

One unique vantage point comes from one Savannah traveler, OxleysAdventures. He shares a narrative of a Savannah visit, arriving by freighter, awaiting the pilot and tug, which pushes the freighter to it’s final destination.  Plus, he shares Savannah points of interest during his port call experience.  You may enjoy reading those insights.

Green Palm Inn is an ideal first point of call during your Savannah visit.  From this popular Savannah bed and breakfast your things to do, places to go or eat, including festival and events, are your call!  Innkeeper Diane McCray Crews is a Savannah tourism star, and fabulous source for Savannah insider information to enjoy the best of Savannah.

An aromatic, gourmand’s breakfast will be a tantalizing wake up call during each day of your stay at this popular Savannah bed and breakfast. Afternoon desserts, and evening wine with homemade hors d’oeuvres set the pace for a social supper in one of Savannah’s chic cafes or farm to table restaurants.

Savannah Insider’s Tip (Folks named Nichols own and run the popular Crystal Beer Parlor, a must-dine eatery!) —
“Abram Nichols was the first port warden of Savannah, was a member of the first board of fire commissioners, and was the commander of a mosquito fleet, fitted out in Savannah, and sent to Tybee island during the War of 1812 to protect Savannah from an invasion by the British fleet.  He was the father of two sons and one daughter, George Nicoll Nichols, being the eldest son and the younger Edward Tattnall Nichols, who died in 1888, having achieved the rank of rear admiral of the United States Navy.” — Source: “A History of Savannah and South Georgia” by William Harden
