“Men of my age flock together; we are birds of a feather, as the old proverb says.” — Benjamin Jowett’s 1856 translation of Plato’s Republic (circa 380 BC).
We hope you’ll consider it! Get away for a few summer days in Savannah.
Arrive with a “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” kind of free spiritedness, singing like Mr. Bluebird is on your shoulder! “Plenty of sunshine headin’ my way”! Yes, sirree, Summer Solstice (June 21, 2013; June 21, 2014; June 21, 2015; June 20, 2016) really has more sunshine headin’ your way in Savannah!
An Extra Four Hours & 12 Minutes for Summer Solstice!
Along Savannah’s North Latitude (32° 5′ 0″ N) — 32 degrees north of the Earth’s equatorial plane — the sun is visible for 14 hours, 15 minutes during the summer solstice and 10 hours, 3 minutes during the winter solstice. That’s 4 hours, 12 minutes more than in winter!
And, Arrive in Time for the Summer Wind
Savannah’s own free-spirited hometown lad, Johnny Mercer, wrote the words to the song Summer Wind. Tybee Island beach is about 20 minutes from Green Palm Inn in the downtown Savannah historic district.
The Summer Wind
Johnny Mercer / Henry Mayer / Hans Bradtke
The summer wind, came blowin’ in – from across the sea
It lingered there, so warm and fair – to walk with me
All summer long, we sang a song – and strolled on golden sand
Two sweethearts, and the summer wind
Like painted kites, those days and nights – went flyin’ by
The world was new, beneath a blue – umbrella sky
Then softer than, a piper man – one day it called to you
And I lost you, to the summer wind
The autumn wind, and the winter wind – have come and gone
And still the days, those lonely days – go on and on
And guess who sighs his lullabies – through nights that never end
My fickle friend, the summer wind.
We hope you’ll return this summer to loveable Green Palm Inn in Savannah, Georgia — an idyllic south Georgia vacation spot for fickle travelers (the ones who love a change of scenery, food, and local culture)!
