Springtime in Savannah: Fancy-Free Weekend Get Away Ideas

SAVANNAH Georgia — Arrive in Savannah for a weekend getaway amazingly carefree. Borrowing a popular 20th Century phrase, we’d say get ready to be ‘footloose and fancy-free‘ [carefree]. If you think the fancy-free phrase seems contemporary, it began in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights Dream, 1598.

But we’d like to think fancy free [carefree] can be any time, especially in spring’s outdoor wonderland in Savannah’s beautiful American South!

Since you would be in Savannah, songwriter Johnny Mercer’s hometown (photo of statue in Ellis Square), we’re confident to say, you’ll love the “Cool, cool, cool of the evening” (lyrics by Mr. Mercer).

The astronomical spring (Northern Hemisphere) begins on
Wednesday, March 20, 2013.  Summer begins in America’s southland on June 21, 2013.

Savannah itself is an event, so the select happenings below are simply frosting on the cake — something extra to consider while on your city trip!
