The Arts District in Downtown Savannah

Yes Virginia there is an Arts District in Savannah, well sort of.  International artists working in conjunction with Savannah Museums and Savannah Galleries is a given as in any arts community.  What sets our regional arts center apart from other arts destination cities are our accomplished cadre of Savannah artists that are forever busy delivering their latest up to the minute creation, be it something as eclectic as sidewalk art in Forsyth Park, art created exclusively for artist owned galleries on River Street, performance art outdoors in City Market or the very latest presentation in Savannah’s prestigious newest museum. The Jepson Center for the Arts, a 64,000 square foot state of the art Museum located on Telfair Square adjacent to her 119+ year old sister, the Telfair Museum on the same Historic District Square has wowed both international and regional visitors in her short history.

While enjoying your stay in one of our upscale accommodations in our inventory of exquisitely furnished historic townhouse renovations offered at Abercorn Townhomes, Suites, and Condominiums, make it a point to also take an architectural tour of Savannah’s Historic District as you view other architectural gems from yesterday.  Check out the different art galleries hidden away in downtown City Market and the Shops at Ellis Square.  Look for hidden art treasures in their outside kiosks as you stroll down cobblestone paved River Street.  Whatever trips your artistic trigger, your long weekend getaway to Savannah’s Arts District is sure to scratch that itch.

Slow Travel Group to stroll into Savannah first weekend in April

We have been tracking a consummate group of travelers over the past year or so as they plan their largest gathering to date in the Hostess City.  No mystery at all as to why we absolutely love these savvy vacationers and their penchant for seeking out vacation rental properties for their group excursions.  Check out some of the excerpted material from the official Slow Travel website below, makes for an enlightened point of view in understanding their criteria when going after their travel lodging:

Slow Travelers stay in vacation rentals around the world – apartments, villas, houses, cottages, cabins, condos that you rent by the week. Other terms used for these types of rentals are self-catering, tourist rentals, holiday rentals, holiday cottages, agritourism (Italy), Gites (France). 190_05
Basing yourself in a vacation rental makes for a different, slower vacation. You stay longer in one place and get to know one area in depth. The extra time in a place lets you find a favorite coffee shop, get your groceries at the local stores, go to the weekly market – the things you would do if you lived there.

Now that you have some insight into their philosophy about traveling, find out about their Savannah weekend getaway as well by following the link.  This laid back group of concept travelers are on the grow as evidenced by their presence at some on a circuit of important travel related trade shows in various regions throughout America.Savannahhorsecarriage
