January 23rd, 2020 by Corey Edwards

Savannh Mardi Gras 2020As February approaches, thoughts turn to love and … Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras is celebrated all over the world, including right here on Tybee Island. Come experience a Savannah Mardi Gras on Tybee, February 22, 2020!

When thinking of Mardi Gras, most people first think of New Orleans, and no wonder.

The first American Mardi Gras was celebrated in 1703, in Mobile, AL while the city was still the capital of French colonial Louisiana. When New Orleans became the capital of Louisiana in 1723, the Mardi Gras tradition followed. The city continues to host one of the world’s largest Mardi Gras events to this day.

But it’s certainly not the only city hosting one.

Tybee Island hosts Savannah Mardi Gras. Tybee is a beautiful, barrier island located just 20 minutes or so from the heart of downtown Savannah. (more…)

Savannah City Market – Shopping, Dining, Art, & Entertainment

August 26th, 2019 by Corey Edwards

Savannah City MarketSavannah City Market is four blocks of open-air shopping, dining, art, entertainment, and history. In fact, with little exception, the property has been Savannah’s central marketplace since the 1700’s!

When it comes to shopping, dining, art, entertainment, and history, the city of Savannah has it all. Not every part of the city has as strong a concentration of all these things as the City Market, however. Just 2 blocks from River Street, by 1755 the spot was already a bustling hive of farmers, fishers, and tradespeople hawking their wares.

Yet Savannah City Market has long been more than just a simple center of commerce.

While 18th century Savannahians would not recognize today’s City Market, they would definitely be familiar with its position as an important city social hub. So important, in fact, that even a series of devastating changes and disasters could not keep the City Market down. (more…)
