SAVANNAH Georgia (May 5, 2013) — Savannah the Beautiful – a praise-worthy heritage destination – is synonymous with ”America the Beautiful”, “Home of the Brave”, and “Land of the Free”.
“Tourism does not go to a city that has lost its soul.” – Arthur Frommer
In the American southeast as we near summertime and the 4th of July, our thoughts turn to gratitude for Savannah’s blessings — its independent spirit, and resilience. The spirit of the place (folk tales, rivers, woods, kindred spirits), and a sense of place (urban architecture, plantings, street culture) are generously portioned into the wonderful, rich mix that allows us to celebrate every day in Savannah.
Heritage is rich, deep and wide in Savannah, Georgia USA.
In the spirit of the great American song, “This Land Is Your Land,” the spirit of Savannah and the choice sense of place we enjoy, require devotion and hard work.
Take in July 4th Fireworks along the Savannah River harbor. Horse drawn carriage tours perpetuate modern and colonial era stories.
The heritage city’s tourism stories are kept accurate through the City of Savannah’s Official Tour Guide Manual and training.
On the streets, and in mansion- and art museums the spirit of Savannah is kept alive by passionate hospitality professionals and tourism marketers who include Green Palm Inn‘s own innkeepers, shuttle and walking tour guides, chefs and restaurant servers, and our friendly city’s residents and officials.
Embracing natural, cultural, patriotic and historic treasures, southern culture and Savannah traditions are celebrated through food, art, film, dance, music, storytelling. We work at it – making every day a quintessential American celebration, unique in Savannah.
Consider the city’s vast multi-cultural heritage festivals — Scottish, Asian, Irish, Greek, Jewish, French, German (Oktoberfest), African, Blues, Jazz, Folk, coastal seafood, and more.
From cane-assisted seniors to young art students, pop culture fans, and cyclists, each clings double fisted to Savannah’s historical wonders and modern progress, and southern-slow paces that meet comfortably with the swell of creativity, places and stories. Each adds to the rich tapestry in Savannah’s corner of America the Beautiful.
“This land was made for you and me.” Come visit us in Savannah, Georgia USA. You’ll discover the spirit of America’s beautiful southland here!
