Savannah GA Couple’s Getaway: Fanfare of Beauty & Fun!

SAVANNAH, Georgia (June 1, 2014) — Sure to be a splendid couples’ getaway retreat, Savannah’s beauty and fun deliver a year-around fanfare of nature performing, architecture at full attention, and friendly citizens’ welcomes, according to Green Palm Inn bed and breakfast on Greene Square. Sometimes the fanfare is of ceremonial music and spectacular fireworks, too.

Hearing the Tuba Fanfare or Bombarde Fanfare from the organ music played at St. John’s Episcopal Church on Madison Square, or a wedding march for wedding couples marrying in a Savannah square or Forsyth Park is likely the only musical fanfare daily in Savannah. The exceptions will be on parade days with rows of bands and drum majors are in step, marching through the National Landmark Historic District.

For a couple’s getaway in Savannah, one might catch the visual fanfare of fireworks during First Friday celebrations each month on the Savannah waterfront, July 4th fireworks along the Savannah River, July 3rd fireworks on Tybee Island beach, or at Savannah Sand Gnats games.

All summer: Sand Gnats minor league baseball (New York Mets farm team). Check schedule for Savannah home games.

“Fanfares were never sounded once, but three times, resounding with long trilling chords, fanciful arpeggios, and a drawn-out drumroll.” — “Fanfare”, Eycyclopedia of the Exquisite, Jessica Kerwin Jenkins

Yes, the visual fanfares in Savannah are in multiples, too!

When romantic couples walk through Savannah squares, along uptown sidewalks, or stroll the Savannah River it is possible to imagine and sense fanciful arpeggios and quiet drawn-out drum rolls.

On special occasions one can catch the fanfare of Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment playing, like it did in springtime 2014 in Beaufort, South Carolina.  It’s a rare privilege to hear and see the U.S. Army’s Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps (Fort Myers, VA)play, like in the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade. In recent years the U.S. Coast Guard Pipes and Drums (Norfolk, VA), and Irish Air Corps Pipes and Drums (Dublin, Ireland) offer rousing fanfare! In 2013 Fire Department units from across the United States played in a collective Pipe & Drum Corps marching unit in Savannah’s City Market during St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

Why choose patriotic, playful, or peaceful fanfare, when couples in Savannah can enjoy them all?!

Get away when you can. We think you will adore Savannah style fanfare and friendly Green Palm Inn as your first stop on your couple’s getaway in Savannah, Georgia USA.

Innkeeper/co-owner Diane Crews touts Green Palm Inn (circa 1897) as “The Softer Side of Savannah”. Originally sea captain cottages, the four-room Gingerbread Classic B&B shares cottage-inn comforts in the quiet of Greene Square’s residential neighborhood in the National Landmark Historic District. Fodor’s guide calls Green Palm Inn a “pleasing little discovery” and “a little gem of an inn”. BedandBreakfast.com named the cottage B&B a top pick for a holiday trip – “Top 10 B&Bs for the Holidays, 2011″.
