Savannah’s top-rated Green Palm Inn is busy scouting year around and always on the lookout for the best places for our guests to enjoy even a mini-break or short trip on the Georgia coast. Diane McCray has hand-picked these little Savannah New Year’s Eve ideas.
“We are delighted to be hosting travelers from around the U.S. and the world, those taking a city break in Savannah to celebrate New Year’s Eve with us on the Georgia Coast,” Diane adds. “It is a privilege to be selected as the downtown lodging spot for one of the most special days of the year!”
Like other times of the year, Diane and staff are tasting and shopping about in downtown Savannah and beyond the historic district to learn where the little nuggets are for memorable new and fun things to experience in Savannah. Without even trying our thoughts gravitated to the City of Lights (Paris) and true red-white-and-blue Americana for things to do on the last day of the year and for a delightful New Year’s Eve night of Savannah fireworks and revelry to ring in 2012.
GREEN PALM INN BED AND BREAKFAST IDEA FOR 2011 NEW YEAR’S EVE IN SAVANNAH GA
Brunch or Mid-day lunch: Keep it simple with lunch in downtown Savannah at La Papillote (French Cuisine to Go), B&D Burgers, B. Matthews Eatery, Ta Ca (Sushi and Japanese Fusion), Screamin Mimi’s Pizza, or Whistle Stop Cafe (served in a rail car in the railroad complex near Savannah Visitor’s Center).
Early supper: Wiley’s Championship BBQ (5 p.m. to 9 p.m., about a 10 minute drive from downtown towards Tybee Island), or Bistro 1875 (Parisian Bistro dining downtown). For afternoon cocktails, slip into Lulu’s Chocolate Bar (after 5 p.m.) or Jen’s and Friends Martini Bar.
Nightlife: Dinner reservations are a must! Fireworks on the Savannah River, harbor front are at 11:59 p.m. Just off Ellis Square, the live music, outdoor street party and New Year’s Eve Balloon Drop in Savannah City Market starts at 9 p.m. and lasts until 1 a.m.
TRANSPORTATION: We have confirmed that the downtown Savannah DOT shuttle will run until 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, and NO service on New Year’s Day. The Savannah Pedicab is a popular way to get around — 912/232-7900 or via Twitter @SavannahPediCab. However, the cobblestone ramps keep the pedi-cab bikes off of the Savannah Riverfront.
All of us at Green Palm Inn bed and breakfast in downtown Savannah wish you all a prosperous and Happy New Year!
