Bachelor & Bachelorette Open Container Tours

Historic Savannah
has long been a drinking destination with the many segments of the drinking crowd due to our Hostess City's liberal open container laws. As a result of this forward leaning law it is not uncommon to participate in the best pub crawl tours found any where you are likely to travel to within hospitality inbued destinations throughout the coastal low country along the Heritage Corridor. With that in mind, a freshly launched Savannah "Pedal Crawl" if not really an honest to goodness Savannah "Pub Crawl" tour like our buddy Greg Profitt offers on his original Savannah Creepy Crawl tour, this uniquely Savannah Tour is now available for groups and singles for rates as low as $10 per pedaler per hour.

The Savannah Slow Ride open container friendly on the roll bar will pick you up at the corner of Jones Street and Jefferson Street (located close to the red perforated line on our historic district map section 4) across from The Crystal Beer Parlor, one of the pub stops in the tour, and proceed along through the storied streets of downtown Savannah. Looking for a memorable Bachelorette or Bachelor party in Destination Wedding Savannah? This inspired creation by Crawler Fabrications just might be the perfect vehicle for your posse of fun loving buds to rent by the hour in Georgia's first City.

Salt Water Marsh Eco-Tours

Regardless of where you land along the mouth of the Savannah River Basin, if a love of all natural living creatures along the chain of sea islands is part of your passion, then a new self guided tour recently launched should be of interest. Green friendly developer Buckwalter Place announced the opening last month of their Greenway Trail in Bluffton, South Carolina with a You Tube video. Our friends at City Trex and Buckwalter Place have put together a top notch collaboration on this walking tour along a very accesible 1.3 mile trail route. Follow the trails through wetlands, hardwood forests, pine forests, and man made lagoons but don’t forget your smartphone! You will be able to use your reader if you have the app for scanning the bar codes along the trail to better identify what you are looking at.

And when you finish your maritime forest tour, choose from a variety of salt water marsh tours out on Hilton Head Island. Our own Salt Water Marsh environment is essential for what is best termed the “cradle of life” here in the coastal Low Country. Salt marshes typically occur on lower energy coastlines in temperate waters in the higher latitudes. Inclusive of these wetland areas, sheltered environments abound in a series of unique jigsaw puzzles of embankments, estuaries and the leeward (down wind side) of protective barrier islands.

This bridge between water and salt marsh features prevalent sand spits that extends on into the ocean. No surprise that our own Low Country salt marshes have a lower topography given our low elevations, hence the term lowcountry. The entire low country area around the Carolinas and Georgia as a result of these characteristics are not only where life begins for so many flora and fauna, but many two legged visitors are equally drawn to this habitat here along with the millions of coastal nature lovers that reside along this several hundred mile lone stretch of coast. Take a “techy stroll” on the Greenway Trail on your next visit to Lowcountry Hilton Head or Savannah to capture the look and feel of a maritime forest thanks to Buckwalter Place’s skill on putting all the constiuent pieces together.

Rock & Roll Marathon in Savannah

Based on early pre-bookings for our always busy reservation desk here at Savannah Getaways, the first ever Rock and Roll Marathon to be ran in Savannah the first weekend in November is going to be a monster of an athletic event. We have already sold out our entire inventory of 3+ bedroom Savannah Vacation Rental homes (many closely located to the actual marathon route) before the official start of summer for this outdoor running event. We have been supplying upscale rental accommodations in the landmark historic district for the Savannah Memorial Bridge Run that takes place every December, and understand what a popular event for area runners this run is but we have been knocked over by the response to the R&R Marathon event that marries distance runners, all manner of musical bands that play along the way along with cheerleaders and themed water stations interspersed throughout the route.
