So you’re going to spend Christmas in Savannah and you want to know what there is to do during your Savannah holiday vacation. Let us help with this short list of some of the many holiday attractions our historic city has to offer:
Annual Holiday Tour of Homes
The Annual Holiday Tour of Homes is an intimate visit with residents of Savannah’s historic district. Learn the histories of the homes, what it’s like to live in Savannah, and pick up a few decorating ideas for your own home. The Annual Holiday Tour of Homes is scheduled for December 13th, 2014. Look for more information about this event at: dnaholidaytour.com.
Looking to see something a little less modern? why not try:
An Old-Fashioned, Savannah Christmas
Tour these stately, historic homes and learn how Christmas in Savannah was celebrated once upon a time! The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace (www.juliettegordonlowbirthplace.org), The Owens-Thomas House (www.telfair.org/visit/owens-thomas/), and The Davenport House (www.davenporthousemuseum.org) all offer tours showcasing old-fashioned, Savannah Christmas traditions. Educate yourself, see some incredibly beautiful, historic homes, and get in the holiday spirit all at once!
Tired of walking, you say? You’d rather ride? How about:
The Holly Jolly Trolley Tour
Make your Christmas in Savannah the best ever with caroling and a ride through the beautiful, historic district of Savannah and Hutchinson Island on the Holly Jolly Trolley Tour! The Holly Jolly Trolley Tour is available throughout November and December. For schedules, ticket prices, and more, please visit: www.trolleytours.com
Singing and seeing the sites was fun but now you’d like to get inside and let someone else do the entertaining – so how about a visit to:
The Savannah Theatre
No Christmas in Savannah would be complete without the Savannah Theatre’s “A Christmas Tradition!” This annual, two-hour show is a review of Christmas songs and humor for the entire family. The theater, itself a historical landmark worthy of a visit, will be gloriously decked out in full, Christmas regalia, so don’t miss it! For a full schedule of dates and showtimes at the Savannah Theatre, please visit: www.savannahtheatre.com
Okay, that was fun but now you’re dog tired and would really like to take a load off:
McMillan Inn, a lovingly restored, 1888, Italianate Revival inn located in the Landmark Historic District of Savannah, has four rooms and a Carriage House to choose from – and all within two blocks of historic Forsyth Park. Our lush and extravagant appointments will transport you to a more refined and genteel era and our breakfast baskets will fill you with the energy you need to explore the city. We look forward to sharing the beauty of Christmas in Savannah with you. And don’t forget: a stay with us also makes a lovely gift!
