While March is going out like the proverbial lamb here in the low country, there is still ample time remaining this month to take advantage of three big events on the other side of our always sold out St. Patrick’s Day long weekend celebration. Take advantage of the upcoming Savannah Tour of Homes weekend featuring one of our very own historic vacation homes on Liberty Street, Little Tara. Buy a ticket and get a rare opportunity to review your next Savannah Vacation Rental.

Another perennial spring favorite is the Savannah Music Festival that kicks off this weekend same as the tour of homes on March 24th. Now enjoying the 22nd record breaking season, this year’s musical event runs all the way through April 9 with plenty of music genres scattered throughout a multitude of historic district venues. Be like other savvy travelers that are choosing their dates on their next Savannah Getaway to enjoy their favorite style of music in close proximity to their downtown urban loft with the aid of our unique historic district mapping tool.

Rounding out the rest of the month of March is a one time only event, an opportunity to board a replica of our seafaring past, an awesome “Tall Ship” of the Privateer class of sailing vessels. The Lynx can be viewed at her berth at Port Savannah where she has been docked since the first of the month. Take a tour on this traveling museum at her Historic District River Street berth where she will be previewing the bicentennial celebration of the War of 1812 for an affordable $5 donation. Make your plans to visit one of America’s favorite historic stops, our Coastal Georgia Destination noted for our diversity of music, architectural tours and history over the next few weeks in particular. And if you do, you will be coming back for more, no doubt!

Period Pied-a-Terre recalls antebellum Cotton Brokers on River Street

All of Savannah’s historic cobblestone River Street served as ground zero for cotton warehouses facing the Savannah River in antebellum Savannah when our coastal Georgia destination was the epicenter of the cotton plantation revolution that swept through the southeastern agricultural states of that pre-civil war era.  And sitting above these warehouses were the cotton broker’s offices who administered the grading and trading of this sought after money crop from wagon to warehouse to seagoing vessel enroute to domestic northern and overseas European markets. Gaining access to these broker’s offices or “factors” offices as they were known, took place from Factors Walk.  Strategically situated overlooking River Street with sweeping vistas from the riverfront balcony, this opulently furnished modern urban loft caters to the most discriminating traveler.

Featuring a whole lot of elbow room at 1,300 sq. ft., this private facility is filled with antiques, 190_02
has a double parlor with a gas fireplace, dining room, bedroom with a canopy queen-size bed, bathroom with separate vanity area, and a fully equipped state-of-the-art kitchen.
