Southern Living | Savannah Special
Southern Living chose Savannah to feature in their Travel section of the April 2011 magazine. Many of Savannah's local hotels, shops, and eats were highlighted to help demonstrate the unique features that make Savannah such a fabulous destination. The spread began with "Why We Love Savannah," and proceeded with a list of Savannah's wonderful assets including the beautiful Water front, Tybee Island, the Squares, and the Colorful Locals to name a few. Because people love to eat, Southern Living shared some of their picks for the Best Eats in Savannah including: B. Matthew's Eatery, Green Truck Pub, Olde Pink House, Local 11 Ten, and American Legion Post 135. Let's not stop there, tourists are a big part of Savannah and they need a place to stay... Southern Living recommends The Mansion on Forsyth Park, the new Westin hotel across the River, or one of Savannah's famous Bed & Breakfasts such as The Gastonian.
Are you looking for something to do on your Savannah visit? Southern Living recommends touring the Squares, hopping on a trolley, or visiting for one of Savannah's many festivals! St. Patrick's Day is one of the biggest festivals Savannah hosts and is the second largest St. Patrick's Day celebration in all of America. If you want the true St. Patrick's Day experience, I recommend booking in advance, packing lots of green attire, and come for the week! As for the shop-aholics, Savannah has plenty of place for you to get your fix. Most of Southern Living's picks included unique to Savannah shops including shopSCAD, Paris Market, and Satchel. According to Southern Living, "Savannah has always had style. Now, thanks to the modern influence of SCAD and a burgeoning artistic community, the shopping is especially good." It's shops like Savannah Bee Company and Nourish that make this statement so pleasantly and completely accurate.
