To stay a top-rated historic Savannah GA bed and breakfast inn — and a favorite for romantic weekend & solo travelers — we look anew at our hometown — Savannah GA. It’s a city rich in southern heritage, history, and beauty spots, not only in the historic district but also off the beaten paths.
In August 2011, we decided to ask the question “Where in Savannah …?” and set out to discover new Savannah GA tips. We treasure the fresh vantage points to see Savannah, uncover stories, and find new Savannah places of broad to unique interest.
You are invited to follow us on Twitter — @GreenPalmInn where we will share more of these fresh little Savannah tidbits, using Twitter’s 140 character limits!
