Savannah tips from Green Palm Inn start with “Come stay.” But, don’t stop there! “Taste. Venture. See. Rest. Shop. You’ll love it all!”
Why? Because Green Palm Inn makes the smart little connections!
Guests are inspired to soak up the little gifts that make up the Savannah experience. Green Palm Inn helps guests to discover, in small bites and in up-close-and-personal experiences, the significant little things that are memorable and unique in Savannah, GA.
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” -Steve Jobs
On January 20, 2012, a flotilla of vessels accompanied the French-based Tara experimental schooner ship. May 3-7, 2012, Savannah becomes a stop for tall sailing ships racing along the Atlantic coast. Up to 15 tall ships will dock in Savannah May 3-7, 2012, as part of the “Tall Ships Challenge 2012, Atlantic Coast”. To the pleasure of tourists, every day the Savannah Riverboat Queen steam and paddle boat is docked on the Savannah River, waiting to cruise up and down the Savannah River for a very unique experience. You’ll be cruising up and down the river that hosts the world’s largest ships in the 4th largest shipping port — Savannah, GA.
A little walk through Savannah’s little squares will take you to memorable little places — the Telfair Museum of Art (the South’s oldest museum), the Gallery Espresso cafe, SCADShop for artisan art student and alumni products, and E. Shaver Booksellers (a little shop-on-the-corner type of book store. Give me the one-bites, the little stops, the little shops, the little experiences, the intimate wine and hors d’ oeuvres before dinner, the historic horse and carriage ride, the cozy Green Palm Inn for lodging, and the charming stop in City Market for night time music … only steps away from the life-size bronze statue of Johnny Mercer. Mercer is the little Savannah boy who grew up to be one of the world’s most prolific lyricists.
We just learned today that a Johnny Mercer song, “Ac-cen-tchu-ate the Positive” is included on Sir Paul McCarthney’s new CD, Kisses On The Bottom to be released on February 6, 2012.
We cannot stop here. Stratton Leopold’s family lived only a few houses away from Johnny Mercer’s downtown Savannah family home on Gwinnett Street near Forsyth Park. Today the Hollywood-decor of Leopold’s Ice Cream on Broughton Street is near historic theatres and Green Palm Inn. It’s a little don’t-miss spot voted “Best Savannah Ice Cream” and among the World’s Top Ten Ice Creams. In the last few days we tasted the first batch of the ice cream parlor’s new lemon custard flavor, featuring Savannah Smiles, Girl Scouts cookies. The new flavor is a tribute to Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low, also a native Savannahian. The Girl Scouts will celebrate the girls’ organization’s 100th anniversary in 2012. It began little too, with 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912.
We hope you’ll arrive soon, ready for a cozy Green Palm Inn stay. We’ll help connect you to the little, memorable Savannah experiences everyday!
