Top Answers To Savannah Travel Questions
Answer this1 AnswerTiming for spring blooms can be tricky as it depends on weather for the season (and who knows how cold it'll stay this winter?). Typically, mid- to late March is a good time to see the azaleas come out in places like Savannah and Charleston. The Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens is end of March this year, so maybe a good indication of when to visit?
Savannah offers a number of "Halloweenie" activities--after all, it is "America's most haunted city." Don't miss one of the many ghost tours, on foot or by hearse. They also have spooky festivals, Halloween balls, moonlit cruises, and haunted houses.
Sue asked:Answer this1 AnswerAlistair answered:I don't believe there are any Mardi Gras celebrations in Savannah, Sue (St. Paddy's Day in March is the big one here). Perhaps you are thinking of the Mardi Gras festivities on Tybee Island, which start today. More info here: http://mardigrastybee.com/. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
joslyn asked:Answer this2 AnswersDrew answered:If you're looking to try something a little different, but still be part of the action on River Street, check out the Bohemian Hotel. Part of the Autograph Collection of boutique hotels by Richard Kessler, its gothic style fits the haunted reputation of the Hostess city of the South. Rocks on the Roof, the hotel's rooftop bar, has become one of the hottest spots in town. Alternately, if you're looking for a resort-style hotel, the Westin Savannah has all the amenities. Have drinks poolside, let the kids play in the splash zone, and make smores by the outdoor fire pit, all while enjoying views of River Street from Hutchinson Island across the river. There are free ferries that run about every half hour to shuttle you from the hotel to the River Walk. Bonus: if you find yourself there the first Friday of the month, enjoy a low country oyster roast, live music, and full bar by the riverside. Oh, and fireworks.
