BRIEF BACKSTORY OF MUSIC IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA

The Georgia colony was founded February 12, 1733. Music, too, was transported.

“Did a carpenter, a farmer, a parent, or anyone else on the Anne transport ballads [on their ship’s journey to the new colony of Georgia in 1732]? It is impossible to know, but likely as not some of the 114 passengers had heard a version or versions of “Barbara Allan”, “Lord Randall”, or other ballads.” Source: Music in Eighteenth-century Georgia by Ronald L. Byrnside

In February 1735, ten Moravian missionaries, lead by August Gottlieb Spangenberg, brought brass and woodwind musical instruments to the Georgia colony. The German/Bohemiam missionaries settled the town of Irene, upstream along the Savannah River. The Savannah, Georgia Moravians was the group’s first settlement in North America. “A year later twenty-five more came.” Source: IBID

“John Wesley was approached by Oglethorpe to be a minister for the new parish of Savannah. It was Wesley’s belief that he would preach to the Indians and lead them to Christ. Wesley and his brother, Charles, sailed for Georgia on October 14, 1735.  On the four month long trip, a storm came up suddenly and broke the main mast. While the Englishmen were crying, a group of Moravians calmly sang hymns and prayed.” — Source: John Wesley and Savannah by Kathy W. Ross and Rosemary Stacy

“The Oldest American musical group of blacks, Old Hundred, had been organized in 1817 and was still active at the end of the war.” Source: Preston Russell and Barbara Hines in “Savannah: A History of Her People Since 1733”

It was the visit by United States President James Monroe (May 11, 1819) — during the launch of the S.S. Savannah, America’s first steamship to cross the Atlantic Ocean — that we learn that music, too, gladdened those festivities. “…[T]he performance of vocal music tended to elevate the soul to sublime and heavenly musings”. — Source: IBID

“Specially composed music” greeted General Marquis de Lafayette’s arrival March 19, 1825.  Source: IBID

With each immigrant arriving in Savannah, came also cultural music that is enjoyed by Savannah tourists and local citizens. For example, during the Greek community’s “annual fall festival … The Greek food, music, and dance bring out Zorba the Greek — even in the Crackers.” Source: IBID

Christmas Gingerbread Manger by Green Palm Inn in Savannah, Georgia USA 16 Dec 2015, 5:13 am

SAVANNAH, Georgia USA — It is the aromatic gingerbread, sugar cookies, wheat berry grass, a simple Nativity Bake Set, and the sweet atmosphere of Green Palm Inn that bring the humble ingredients together for a homey Christmas in the USA.

Christmas Nativity in gingerbread and sugar cookies at Green Palm Inn’s popular bed and breakfast — a tourism star in the Savannah, GA’s historic district.

Diane’s version of a gingerbread house is an unpretentious Christmas Nativity scene.

Found in the Savannah forest of the historic district, is a unique Christmas gingerbread house. There is no gold leaf to denote elegance; yet, this nativity gingerbread house exudes simple elegance for the holiday season.

Green Palm Inn’s 4-bedroom historic bed and breakfast in the Savannah historic district is “gingerbread” architecture. Understandably, we’re a tad more fascinated than most about gingerbread year around, but especially at Christmas.

“Gingerbread houses originated in Germany during the 16th century. The elaborate cookie-walled houses, decorated with foil in addition to gold leaf, became associated with Christmas tradition. Their popularity rose when the Brothers Grimm wrote the story of Hansel and Gretel, in which the main characters stumble upon a house made entirely of treats deep in the forest.” (Source: PBS.org)

From Medieval times, Gingerbread Festivals in England, Holland, Germany and France brought about the popularity of the gingerbread cookies, called ‘fairings’.  “The shapes of the gingerbread changed with the season, including flowers in the spring and birds in the fall. Elaborately decorated gingerbread became synonymous with all things fancy and elegant in England. The gold leaf that was often used to decorate gingerbread cookies led to the popular expression ‘to take the gilt off of gingerbread.’  The carved, white architectural details found on many colonial American seaside homes is sometimes referred to as ‘gingerbread work’….” (Source: PBS.org)

Sweet Christmas gingerbread house is a Nativity scene at Green Palm Inn’s top-rated lodging in Savannah, GA USA | Mary and Joseph set the example long ago of opening the door to strangers (shepherds and wise men), following the birth of Jesus. It is a happy day we are so pleased to celebrate with our bed and breakfast lodgers.

“Come, let us adore him”, Diane repeats for Christmas 2015.

Beautiful historic churches in Savannah’s National Landmark Historic District open their doors to strangers for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services.

Yes, in Savannah, Georgia we’re very friendly that way … opening doors to strangers. We do that year around at our top-rated Savannah bed and breakfast inn, a Savannah tourism star.

Wheel of Fortune Savannah GA Prize Winner: Squares Make Savannah Very Different From Charleston SC 15 Oct 2015, 10:55 am

SAVANNAH Georgia — Last fall a delightful young Princeton University of Delaware graduate, now a talented Big 4 accountant working in New York City, won the Savannah prize sponsored by Green Palm Inn on the popular television game show, Wheel of Fortune®! The episode was themed “Southern Hospitality”.

“Savannah has a lot of hospitality,” Lindsay Duff, CPA advises during her first-time visit in 2015. She described her stay at Green Palm Inn bed and breakfast in two words: ‘like home’.

On many occasions Lindsay’s family of three had traveled to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, by way of Charleston. Never before, however, had she visited Savannah, Georgia. This Wheel of Fortune trip was her first Savannah visit!

“The people who think that Charleston and Savannah are alike must stay only a day or two,” Lindsay surmised. “The cities are very different. Savannah is a lot more historic, the people are friendly, and the citizens have a story to tell [and are eager to share the stories]. Savannah with its squares makes it more quaint. Savannah is more residential. Charleston is more urban, a lot more commercial than Savannah. Charleston is like a clean New York City.” — Lindsay Duff, Wheel of Fortune prize winner during 2015 Savannah visit.

On the day of her flight home, during an unhurried interview at her host bed and breakfast lodging, Green Palm Inn, we were eager to learn more about this endearing young lady and her insights about Savannah.

Once you learn a little of her back story, it will come as no surprise how she landed a winner’s spot on America’s Game Show.

Lindsay’s Wheel of Fortune adventure was a family affair.

It began at 7:30 p.m. every weekday for years, when she watched and solved “Wheel” puzzles with her Nana, her quick-minded maternal grandmother, now age 97.

After roughly five efforts to become a contestant on the popular show, Lindsay tried out during the call for contestants in Brooklyn, New York. In her required video submission she taped her story about her Nana and her shared happy times at her grandmother’s home, devoted fans of the show, competitive with each other, and solving puzzles along with television contestants.

It is no surprise that Lindsay’s endearing story and beautiful, All-American smile won her a personal interview spot in her lead up to being a Wheel of Fortune contestant. Her tall dad, a New Jersey police officer, accompanied her to Brooklyn and waited patiently. Her audition included snippets of scenes that are familiar to Wheel of Fortune game show fans — yelling letters and solving lots of puzzles. Hours later she emerged, expressing that she thought her chances were slim.

We asked if she had been a cheerleader, thinking it might have given her a jump start with the shouting. “Only in seventh grade,” she replied.  Instead the joyfully enthusiastic, mild-mannered New Jersey native was captain of her high school basketball volleyball team.

Then, as though reliving her anticipation, Lindsay tells us at Green Palm Inn of receiving her Wheel of Fortune contestant letter.

Her dad had placed the letter from the television show in a stack of her personal mail beside her plate at the supper table. Yet, there was a cake! Cakes in the Duff family are a tradition, a signal of happy times. Lindsay was quietly puzzled about the cake. The day was not a birthday or anniversary.

In the normal course of daily conversations with her parents at the table, her dad encouraged her to check her bills. As though reliving the thrill of her discovery, Lindsay  tells us that her joyful emotions erupted, followed by her dancing around the house! [We can picture this, now that we have met this joyful gal!]

Of course, the celebratory cake was enjoyed. More happy family times would follow within two weeks when the television show was to be filmed.

The show was to tape on Thursday, October 30, an especially busy season for her employers in New York City.

She was granted quick permission to take special time off for this extraordinary experience. Lindsay and her parents flew two days early to enjoy the Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, and Universal Studios in California. Wheel of Fortune is taped at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California.

The debonair Pat Sajak made her feel so comfortable. She tells that Pat is a calming influence for all the contestants. Vanna White, a South Carolina native, came to meet the contestants without makeup. “Vanna is beautiful without makeup,” Lindsay adds.

Lindsay does not stop there with praise about the professionalism she encountered through her Wheel of Fortune experience. The show’s producers left nothing to chance, even last minute.  One example: The game show contestants were in place.  Only minutes before the show was to begin, one producer raced from behind the scenes to Lindsay. There was a question about her Nana: “Has Granny passed?” Pat Sajak had asked his producer. “No, she is very much alive,” Lindsay assured. On air, Pat asked, “How’s Grandma?”

That important answer was one of so many small, caring points that make the Wheel of Fortune show a wonderful experience.  To a person, including the contestant department’s Alex and Jackie, Lindsay discovered that the people care!

Now, you and we know more about why the Wheel of Fortune is such a popular show!

Lindsay’s Wheel of Fortune Savannah GA Trip Is A Family Affair, Too!

The episode featuring Lindsay aired December 22, 2o14. In August 2015 she invited her mother, Janice, a school teacher, to join her for her first trip to Savannah. Her mother adds that many of Lindsay’s friends had previously volunteered!

“Culture amazes me,” she volunteers. Adventurous Lindsay had studied in Granada Spain, traveled to Punta Cana Dominican Republic, and visited Nashville, Tennessee.  Her Savannah trip has now added more memories to treasure of America’s southern culture.

Highlights of her Savannah visit were Matta Hari, a speakeasy hidden away near Lower Factor’s Walk, Beyond Good & Evil Ghost Tour, and Alligator Soul’s fine dining and sangria, day-boat seafood, and chocolate mouse cake. “We drank more on this trip,” Janice added.

We inquired if it was Savannah’s reputation as a drinking city. “No! The sangria at Alligator Soul tastes so good!”  Complimentary wine hour is daily also at Green Palm Inn.

The pair went bike riding in Hilton Head Island followed by seeking out and sipping refreshing strawberry daiquiris at Salty Dog Cafe. Proclaimed to be the “best in the world” by Lindsay’s mother, the daiquiri is a tradition on every trip to the South Carolina barrier island. “It was strange to be in Hilton Head without hoards of people,” Janice added.

What did Lindsay say about Green Palm Inn and the B&B owner, who sponsored the Wheel of Fortune prize? 

“Diane could not have been more hospitable,” Lindsay relayed. A Savannah-themed welcome basket greeted the Wheel of Fortune winner and her dear mother.

The mother-daughter pair added more glowing praise to include Diane’s hospitality, efficiency to make reservations, map out the city, and recommendations to enjoy what is best and local in Savannah from musicians to landmarks to shopping and food.  They were impressed that Diane had run out early morning (7:30 a.m.-ish), wearing her pink bathrobe to State Street to alert street workmen to stop the noise. Her B&B guests were still sleeping.

Reviews about the inn’s room? “The room is incredible — Sable Palm Suite. There is something dreamy about it. Spotless. Pristine. Love how Diane decorates.”

The Green Palm Inn Menu for this Pre-Fall Week?

Afternoon hors d’oeuvres during wine hour included mushroom tarts, cheese plate featuring cheeses from Swainsboro, Georgia, goat cheese with jalapeno peppers, pecan jelly with fig on olive crackers. mini beef wellingtons, duck bundles/purses with phyllo dough, artichoke and spinach cups, white cheddar in phyllo cups, crostini with pea pesto, crostini with homemade pimento cheese, bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat fig cheese.

Each morning features a hearty breakfast entree, plus fresh fruit, juice, and coffee.  Breakfast entrees are varieties so that multi-day guests will enjoy a nice variety. So it was during the week Lindsay and Janice were lodging guests. Diane’s hearty breakfasts individual frittata with chocolate muffin and cornbread, lemon and raspberry strata with turkey bacon, crustless quiche with biscuits and chicken sausage, banana French toast with chicken sausage with sweet peppers, Mexican strata with biscuit and sausage patties, peaches and cream bread pudding plus chicken sausage with bacon and cheddar cheese.

Would she come back to Savannah? “Yes!” Lindsay replied, and she would stay at Green Palm Inn.

Walking in Savannah GA’s Oak Urban Forest: America’s National Tree 25 Aug 2015, 3:46 pm

SAVANNAH Georgia — The Live Oak is the state tree of Georgia USA, and the Oak (of about 80 varieties) is the America’s National Tree.  In the night photograph of Forsyth Park (above), you will see how beautifully the Live Oak treetops frame the legendary Forsyth Park Fountain.

Ideal for a walking vacation, Savannah’s urban forest picturesque offers shade under the wide canopy of the hearty Live Oaks. Serving as nature’s picture mat frame, the Live Oak trees frame Savannah’s legendary attractions in the city-center downtown and beyond, as below in Chippewa Square at the Oglethorpe Monument.

Savannah video in progress under Chippewa Square‘s Live Oak trees in downtown Savannah GA’s urban forest in the southern USA city’s historic district.

“In 2004 the Arbor Day Foundation held a vote for the official National Tree of the United States of America. In November 2004, the United States Congress passed legislation designating the oak as America’s National Tree.” Source: Arbor Day Foundation

SAVANNAH, GEORGIA TREE HERITAGE

“The City of Savannah has a grand history as The Forest City. General James Oglethorpe founded the colony of Georgia in 1733. One of the first ordinances in the new colony was a prohibition against cutting trees, stating “No tree may be cut without the express permission of Noble Jones”. As early as 1891, trees were planted in an organized manner along streets and boulevards, and in parks and squares. In 1896, the Park and Tree Commission was established to assure the orderly forestation and beautification of the entire City….  Savannah has been recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA since 1985 ” City of Savannah, Park & Tree, Urban Forestry

In recent years arborists, tourists and residents have also the “Monday Morning Mothers of the Earth” and Savannah Tree Foundation to thank. Three prominent Savannah women rallied support from like-minded citizens, each interested in the conservation and preservation of trees. Their tree focus and efforts began when bulldozers were destroying increasing numbers of the centuries-old Live Oak trees in the Savannah area.

Significant live oak trees in Savannah include those in the promenades in Bonaventure Cemetery, of which botanist John Muir wrote in Camping in the Tombs. From Significant Trees in Georgia, there is this list: the Laurel Oak in Colonial Cemetery, the Candler Oak on the corner of Drayton Street and Gaston Street (parking lot of the Savannah Law School), Lafayette Oak on the corner of Abercorn and President Streets (near Owens-Thomas House), Majestic Oak (pictured below) on Laroche Avenue on Majestic Oaks Circle, and Wormsloe Live Oaks — seen in many movies filmed in Savannah — located at the Wormsloe State Park on Skidaway Road near Isle of Hope.  Source: University of Georgia, Significant Trees of Georgia

Note: We are surprised that Savannah’s live oaks are not listed on the National Register of Big Trees, maintained by AmericanForests.org or

Today, the City of Savannah’s Park and Tree Department plants three trees for every downed or removed tree.  When you walk through the downtown Savannah historic district and see a orange, public notice sign on a tree, it’s a public alert that the tree is scheduled for removal.

For the original six frigates of the United States Navy, Live oak [primarily from Saint Simons Island, Georgia USA] was used for framing as it was a strong, dense, and long-lasting wood weighing up to 75 lb per cubic foot (1,200 kg/m3) when freshly cut. The frigates were originally designated by the letters A through F until President George Washington selected five of the names: Constitution, United States, President, Constellation, and Congress. Secretary of the Navy, Benjamin Stoddert, named the Chesapeake. Source: Wikipedia

Savannah, Georgia USA: New Stories With Savannah River Surprise Connections 29 Jul 2015, 7:19 pm

SAVANNAH, Georgia — We enjoy Savannah, Georgia’s little surprises. And, we like sharing the new stories we discover!

When you visit Savannah, Green Palm Inn is a tourism star and THE champion of the Savannah’s little places and little Savannah surprises for every visit! Now you know!

For example, beyond the tall ships that dot the Savannah harbor and the historic city’s modern-day Rousakis Plaza and Savannah River walk, we like the little character-rich stories. Like these little connections to the Savannah River — sassafras, spider lilies, and Savannah Red Rice!

“If you live [or visit, we add!] in Georgia chances are you’ve been touched in some way by the Savannah River,” writes The Nature Conservancy.

(1) The Nature Conservancy of Georgia describes the Savannah River Basin’s abundant diversity of life as rivaling that of a South American rain forest. The Savannah River Basin is home to more than 75 species of rare plants and animals, including the majestic swallow-tailed kite, the rocky shoals spider lily, and the wild cocoa tree. — Source: GARivers.org | The Savannah River is one of only four left in the southeast with significant populations of Hymenocallis coronaria, the Shoals spider-lily. *

(2) The low marshes along the Savannah River were converted into wild rice fields. “The Savannah settlement discovered that the marshlands around Savannah were ideal for the cultivation of a particular staple—rice. In the early years of the colony, rice plantations dotted the riverbanks and marshlands, whose waters, fed by the river and the tides, allowed for a rapid prosperity…. [Eighteenth century landowners used the tidal river to create vast rice plantations. Source: Nature.org] After the Revolutionary War, rice continued to be a major crop. But in 1793, at Catharine Greene’s plantation on the banks of the Savannah, just upstream from the city, Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. In short order, cotton dominated the region completely.” Source: Georgia Encyclopedia. February 28, 1776, with a view to capturing the eleven rice laden ships at the Savannah wharves, the British vessels came up the river, and anchored at five fathoms. These vessels were the Scarborough, 20 guns; Tamer, 16 guns; Cherokee, 10 guns; Hinchenbrooke, 8 guns, with two transports, one mounting 16 guns.

Dine on Savannah Red Rice at Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room or Paula Deen’s Lady & Sons restaurant in downtown Savannah. Or, try your hand at this southern classic, featured in the Savannah Morning News, Savannah Red Rice. A dish with origins from African slaves, “It was even referred to as mulatto rice in the 1930s ‘The Savannah Cookbook.'” — Laura Binder | “My research shows that indeed Savannah red rice is an adaptation of a similar dish made all over West Africa called Jollof rice._” — “A Savannah Christmas Tradition”, foodasalens.com

(3) In the late sixteenth century, the French started the first European commerce on the Savannah, trading with the Indians for sassafras. Source: GARivers.org | Sassafras may have triggered the first naval battle on the river. In 1605 the Spanish, who claimed ownership of the New World territory, came upon a group of French traders on the river and defeated them in a bloody battle. Source: Georgia Encyclopedia

“Sassafras is a native plant to North America and was used by the Native Americans for various medicinal cures and a cooking spice (this was recorded as early as 1577).  The Choctaw Indians first used the dried ground leaves as a seasoning and thickener.  In 1578, Sir Walter Raleigh brought it back to England from the Virginia Colony.   The name “Sassafras”, applied by the Spanish botanist Monardes in the sixteenth century, is said to be a corruption of the Spanish word for “saxifrage” (a large plant genus).

In the early 17th century, English ships were sent to the colonies to collect Sassafras roots to use in the building of forts and other large structures.  These trips became known as the Great Sassafras Hunts.” Source: Bellarmine University

Mid-Summer Deal 2015! “Sunday PLUS 2” Savannah GA Vacation Green Palm Inn 13 Jul 2015, 9:19 pm

SAVANNAH Georgia — Lodging at Green Palm Inn‘s cozy bed and breakfast in beautiful Savannah’s historic district is always a deal!

The deal gets even better for your Summer vacation 2015 when you book the top-rated inn’s “Sunday Plus 2” deal → July 15 through August 18, 2015, get away to America’s most beautiful city for a Savannah mini summer vacation. Stay Sunday / Monday / Tuesday — three nights — at Green Palm Inn. You’ll get your Sunday night’s lodging at 50% off! This offer is based on availability, is not valid with any other deals, and is valid only for reservations made after July 13, 2015.

MISS THE CROWDS! TRY THESE MINI-VACATION IDEAS FOR THREE DAYS IN HISTORIC SAVANNAH — SUNDAY / MONDAY / TUESDAY. Innkeeper Diane Crews offers fresh ideas of what to do in Savannah to savor the city’s less busy days — Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON:  Buy tickets early for the Savannah Theatre‘s Sunday matineer musical. After teh show I would head to Cha Bella (near Green Palm Inn) for a nice quiet dinner — farm to table — and, relax after a long travel out on their patio with silent films shown on the restaurant patio wall. Or, if you want to continue the musical vibe, stroll over to Jazz’d for a funky musical night with tapas (shrimp and scallops or fried green tomatoes) southern style.

MONDAY MORNING: I would get up early in the am and walk/run to Forsyth Park through the squares on Bull Street — Wright, Chippewa, Madison and Monterey squares. Take in the year-around lush greenery and fabulous history found in each unique square. Or, I would head (walking or running) to the Savannah River Walk to see the harbor’s summer sunrise on the water. Return to Green Palm Inn for a wholesome, scrumptious breakfast.

Monday after breakfast I would head to the creeks or rivers to fish late morning and early afternoon — just enjoying being out on the water. I’d probably start at Bull River on Wilmington Island or Lazaretto Creek on Tybee Island.

Late lunch I would stop at Wiley’s Championship BBQ (mixed sliders with fried pickles are Diane’s favorites) or Flying Fish cafe for crab cakes. That evening I would beg Phil Sellers to do a walking tour with me. He tells fabulous back stories of Savannah and often he is able to get into the private home of one of Savannah’s many story-rich characters. After that tour I’d be at Leopold’s Ice Cream for a sandwich-and-a-chocolate-malt dinner!

Green Palm Inn’s hearty breakfast on Tuesday (and everyday!) will have your ready to walk through city to read and experience more of the downtown garden squares, the architecture, and Savannah’s notoriously friendly, southern welcome.

You will want an early, memorable dinner with either Alligator Soul or Noble Fare before, followed by a retro movie on the big screen or a live show at the historic Lucas Theatre. Yes, of course, we recommend more Leopold’s Ice Cream (maybe a root beer float or flavor of the month ice cream sundae) before heading back to the inn!

NO, THIS IS NOT A CANNED GETAWAY! SIMPLY IDEAS. 

Diane is brilliant to assist guests wanting to explore Savannah Your Way! ™  Simply share some of your interests — art, music, types of cuisine, outdoors, wine, architecture, history, genealogy, biking, road trips, and photography (you get the idea!). This gal, who will remind you of your favorite aunt, will pull out all the stops for her lodging guests to enjoy wonder-filled few days in Savannah.

Top Savannah Men’s Go-To Places That Spark Gratitude: Business Dining + Vacation Spots 5 Jun 2015, 8:19 pm

SAVANNAH Georgia — We believe taking a few days away in Savannah can afford a best-places vacation and enhance business travel. More summer vacation ideas include a Father’s Day gift, great anniversary gifts for men, celebration vacation, a birthday gift for men’s weekend, unusual men’s gift, or Valentine’s gift for him.

Why? In Savannah one can easily click into things men like to do — the manly fun, easy relaxation, and outdoor adventures — as well as trends like sight jogging, voluntary simplicity, slow food, tech-life balance, and even slow journalism.

Here are a few of our ideas for 10 Go-To Men’s Places and Things to Do in Savannah!

I am never clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious.– Albert Einstein

1. EAT AT MORE CASUAL, MANLY PLACES

Sly’s Sliders, Treylor Park, Leopold’s Ice Cream, The Collins, and Sandfly BBQ got big shout outs in the New York Times’ 36 Hours in Savannah feature (June 2015). (Our favorite BBQ ribs are Wiley’s Championship BBQ, 10 minutes from downtown Savannah just off Islands Expressway.) When we dined for lunch recently, some of Savannah’s Who’s Who Executives arrived to Sly’s Sliders in shorts and sock-less, as is the Savannah style fashion along with seersucker suits on Sunday. One can snag some movie-crew food dining at places like Starland Cafe who post catering credits for Dirty Grandpa, Magic Mike XXL, SpongeBob Movie 2) and TV’s Food Network.  Dine at Alligator Soul for smoked Hilbo Steak and premium brand liquors, like the Crown Royal Rye.  Years ago, Ben Affleck’s Porsche was spotted more than once at Tybee Island’s North Beach Grill. Betty Bombers American Grill has a World War II vibe, dished up with canteen-style burgers and fries.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR: Be grateful for delicious, affordable food and atmosphere. And, “When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them.” ~Chinese Proverb

2. TAKE A WALKING OR HAUNTED TOUR + A SELFIE.

The selfie of Zac Efron and his girlfriend document that they were taking a Savannah haunted tour.  Visit Johnson Square, where Sophia Vergara was spotted during the filming of Magic Mike XXL in Savannah.  After sundown last night we spotted three walking tours at once in Wright Square.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR:  Be grateful for an afternoon rain that cools the air and for opportunities to splash in puddles, as you did as a boy. “My socks may not match, but my feet are always warm.” ~Maureen McCullough

Nightlife includes walking and haunted tours in downtown Savannah, GA | This is Wright Square with monument to William Gordon, railroad pioneer.

3.  MEN, LEAVE THE RAZORS AT HOME!

Stop in for a mustache or beard trim or hair cut at The Barber Pole, where the peppermint pole still twirls brightly at night. Pick up new grooming accessories and fragrance products at Prospector Co. in Savannah. Scheduled for a its debut at Barney’s  Madison Avenue Flagship in New York City, the Savannah-based men’s shop made headlines in the New York Post: “Prospector Co. supplies the salves, creams and elixirs every man requires” (December 2014). Women love the products, too.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR: Be grateful for finding new, little things — some of the simple indulgences to pamper oneself. “The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.” ~Eric Hoffer, Reflections On The Human Condition

4. CHECK OUT LEGENDARY MEN’S HATS. 

A few blocks from Green Palm Inn one can walk right into the Goorin Bros.’s men’s hat shop and buy a fedora, Italian flatcap, or Panama straw hat. Walk right around the corner to Ellis Square and you’ll spot a Fedora on the statue of Johnny Mercer, a Savannah native, co-founder of Capitol Records, and songwriter to tunes like Hooray to Hollywood, Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive, Days of Wine and Roses, and Moon River.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR:  Be grateful for a first-hand opportunity to tap into granddad and dad’s era with modern day style! “Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don’t unravel.” ~Author Unknown

5. STOP IN FOR BEER TASTING

There is no shortage of beer spots in Savannah, a city with a pop culture of “to-go cups”. Stop in for beer tasting at the World of Beer, Moon River Brewery,  and The Distillery. Arrange a beer tasting tour at Coastal Empire Beer Company or Service Brewing Company and Southbound Brewing Co.  We have more recommendations for aspirational wine connoisseurs.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR: Be grateful for wind-down, sociable atmospheres. “Two kinds of gratitude: The sudden kind we feel for what we take; the larger kind we feel for what we give.” ~Edwin Arlington Robinson. Consider buying a stranger a beer!

6. TAKE THE CELEBRATION GANG OUT FOR OYSTERS.

If you’re in town for a friends’ meet up or a bachelor party, dine on oysters at the newly opened Sorry Charlie’s. You cannot miss the neon sign on Congress Street at Ellis Square, downtown. Bernie’s Oyster House on River Street, and Coco’s at Lazoreto Creek on Tybee Island are two spots we think you enjoy.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR:  Be especially grateful if you’re visiting Savannah during a month with an “R” — January, February, March, April, September, October, November, and December — when fresh oysters are in season.

7. PAUSE FOR MUSIC OR STOP TO PRAY IN HISTORIC CHURCHES

Midday church chimes ring through the Bull Street corridor and squares. If you’re so inclined, pause to soak up the beauty on a park bench. Many downtown churches are open for visits, including the majestic Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Lafayette Square.  Walking through Troop Square, you’ll see an historic marker near the Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah, touting that the holiday tune Jingle Bells was written in Savannah by James Pierpont.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR:  We’re grateful for inspirational places and people.

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

8. GET YOUR EXERCISE WITH SIGHT JOGGING OR WALKING

Enjoy the historic architecture, monuments to heroes, and village setting of Savannah while walking or running in the National Landmark Historic District. We know first hand and read that most travelers look for laid back and relaxing trips in 2015. While taking it easy, our guests also want to be healthy, get some exercise and enjoy this beautiful, walking city. Why is Georgia’s first city so popular for walking and running? Savannah features mostly flat terrain, until you run the annual bridge run, the ramps on the Savannah River bluff, or crisscross the metropolis running in the Rock N Roll Savannah Marathon (November 7-8, 2015)!

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR: We’re grateful for determination to stay active!

9. TAKE TO THE ATLANTIC OCEAN! Go fishing from Bull River Marina and then let the Flying Fish Restuarant cook up your catch. Go scuba diving at NOAA’s Grey Reef. Go surfing, kayaking, standup surfboarding, or parasailing off Tybee Island beach. Moonlit beach photography is popular in the dark sky and flat beach, a 20-minute drive from downtown Savannah.

  • GRATUTIDE FACTOR:  Somebody local will help you do something fun and new!

A photo posted by Dixie Fears (@fishinwithdixie) on Oct 27, 2014 at 5:16am PDT

10. ENJOY HOME STYLE HOSPITALITY

Diane Crews at Green Palm Inn takes pride in her manly breakfasts (crafted to avoid food allergies and dietary restrictions). “Executives tell me they love this bed and breakfast experience at Green Palm Inn, especially after so many nights at glass and steel, national brand hotel trips,” adds Diane.

  • GRATITUDE FACTOR: Be grateful for finding THE favorite-aunt model for your next big novel. She’s at Green Palm Inn.

Green Palm Inn for B&B’s 4th of July picnic in historic Savannah GA downtown — Greene Square.

Men, Green Palm Inn will help you to take more spontaneous trips here — the kind to stimulate gratitude — in beautiful, lively Savannah!

Ok, we’re busted! Recently, we’ve tapped into #gratitude research, a term tracked by WordSpy. So, we have added a GRATITUDE FACTOR for good measure in this post. We know really good people who advocate Gratitude Journals; and, to make it easy, we found an iPhone Gratitude ap ($1.99 via iTunes. Might be interesting to try a digital means of counting our blessings for a Savannah GA trip or any time. Just a thought.
