SAVANNAH Georgia — “Then Savannah Happened”. Now there’s a great phrase to take in the Savannah spirit! We spotted it in a Leopold’s Ice cream Instagram thread, The post was originally by Melissa Lukan.
Credit to @melissa.lukan : Then Savannah happened. Probably the most magical place I have been in America. Having a little moment in Monterey Square when the @leopoldsicecream cart arrived.🍦 Monterey was my favorite spot in the entire city and this totally made my day. #savannah #leopolds #montereysquare #memories #southernbelletour
Yes, that’s the way Savannah is — spirited, spontaneous, serendipitous! We reported a similar phrase in our blog post about the late Savannah mayor, John Rousaskis and the caption on his apron, “Suddenly Savannah Is Really Cooking“.
Green Palm Inn‘s innkeeper, Diane McCray Crews is a master facilitator to help her bed and breakfast inn’s lodging guests to enjoy Savannah your way! “I believe in ‘The Softer Side of Savannah’, the enjoyable, fun experiences that you’ll find in Savannah, beginning here at Green Palm Inn,” Diane adds.
Spontaneous Vacation in Savannah
In the Washington Post Sara Stillman Berger wrote of her family’s spontaneous vacation . “I had been so sure that my family needed an easy, thoughtless vacation, but we ended up with the complete opposite: A vacation full of discovery, not only of the unexpected treasures around us, With no agenda, anything was possible and we took full advantage…. On the return drive north, we explored Savannah, traversing the idyllic squares and losing ourselves in history….”
Spontaneity can happen easily … only in Savannah!
Relive your own nostalgia! Did you know? On August 13, 1959, Brenda Lee (a Georgia native) recorded “Sweet Nothin’s,” her first top ten hit. During a trip to Savannah and nearby Georgia Coast beach of Tybee Island in summer, it’s easy to live the song’s lyrics of sitting on the front porch and walking hand in hand.
