Summer Time and the Living’s Easy

Summer has officially arrived so grab the kids and head outside this weekend to enjoy the long, lazy days before it gets too hot!
Pick up locally grown, organic goodness at the Forsyth Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning on the South end of the park.  Fresh fruits and veggies, breads, meats and icy treats; all fresh from local gardens and farmers, are perfect for those summer picnics and grill outs with friends.  After you’ve stocked up, let the kids run off some energy at the playground, then cool off in the water jets at the band shell.

If you haven’t started your own garden already, you’ll want to soon, and tomorrow you can learn all about gardening at Groovy Garden Day.  From how to plant a container garden or raised beds, to the benefits of composting and rain barrels, there will be plenty of demos for you to learn from.  Browse the different booths of crafts while the kids have fun with the bean bag toss, bubble games, story teller and face paintings.  Leopold’s Ice Cream will be there – and Quantum Catering will also have some tasty treats.  The best thing – it’s FREE!

You can beat the heat at the beach on Sunday at the Market at Tybee Island Lighthouse.  Take a dip in the ocean then stroll over to the Lighthouse where you can listen to live music while you browse and buy unique art, collectibles, fresh produce, gourmet foods and more.  Take a tour of the Tybee Light House and climb to the top for a breathtaking view of Tybee Island. 
Now through August, you can take advantage of the Summer Movie Series where several of Savannah’s movie theatres will be featuring morning movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for $1 or $2 – a great way to start the day with the little ones!
Savannah offers so many fun (and free) things to do; no wonder we were ranked #3 in “Best Affordable US Destinations” by U.S. News Travel.  If you haven’t visited Savannah yet – what are you waiting for?
