The historic district proving to be much more than just a vacation destination

Having one of the most beautiful and history rich examples of a historic district in the United States, the city of Savannah has long been known as one of the premier vacation destinations in the country. With buildings and homes steeped in tradition and rich in beauty, new visitors show up every year to explore one of the most historic places in the south. Although Savannah will continue to be one of the perennial top ten prime vacation destinations, some have found that full time living in a history rich area can be just as enjoyable as a short stay.


Many people look for some of the same things in their home locations as they do in their vacations and trips. When it comes to art, entertainment, culture, creativity and quality of life, Savannah and its historic district surely provides a resource for all of it. In recent years, the city has become known as a great starting point for young professionals who’ve just left the confines of college and started their careers off in a Savannah area apartment, house or condominium. The area offers a mix between new neighborhoods such as Southside with the classic residences of the Historic district, making Savannah a go to place for young adults, as well as baby boomers.


For those looking for the richest area of culture, art and tradition, living in the Historic District could be just the right decision. This area is not only full of timeless structures, homes and buildings, but is also home to unbelievable shopping and restaurant options. The home grown commercial and retail aspect of this area is often overlooked and overshadowed by the décor and structure of the classic buildings, but it is just as enjoyable and beneficial to hometown living. With so many visitors often in town, there are certainly families and people who tend to fall in love with the surroundings instantly. With a supreme mix of rich Colonial/Antebellum Georgia history and architecture, as well as shopping and eating second to none, Savannah will continue to be a hotspot for residents in the years to come.

A Taste of Lady Chablis?

Okay, I freely admit to posting controversial titles in this blog. And I promise I will do better in my next Savannah Vacation News post. But I simply couldn’t resist combining two events that fall on the same day later this week that the gourmet visitors among you may want to take in. That would be the 11th annual Taste of Savannah Foody event AND an encore performance at Club One of Midnight in the Garden of Good and evil star, Lady Chablis on Friday September 9th.


From 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM, sample the latest low country “coastal cuisine” purveyors of delicious delights at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Hutchinson Island Georgia. Returning attendees know the drill, for just $60 per ticket per person, you can sample a wide variety of lowcountry comfort eating at this unique smorgasbord provided by Destination Savannah's best restaurateurs.


Don’t miss this always anticipated event for your sampling of outstanding cuisine from some of Savannah’s finest restaurants, Vic’s on the River, Rock’s on the Roof, Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House, and our renowned The Olde Pink House to name but a few of Savannah’s best eateries.


And after eating your fill, take a free ferry ride back across the Savannah River to River Street, walk a few blocks to Club One on Jefferson Street, and catch the outrageous Lady Chablis. Watch the Good Morning America Destination Savannah segment in the excerpted video below to get an idea of how it is that Savannah’s Blue Lady came to be courtesy of author John Berendt.
