Savannah Holiday Tour
December 11-15, 2024
Register early. We were sold out in 2023.
Experience the bygone days of gracious southern living during the holiday season. Savannah, one of America’s oldest and most unique cities, provides a charming escape where iconic 19th-century mansions adorn the streets and live oaks, dripping with Spanish moss, fill the squares. Here, the past is forever present yet the future unveils itself in the abundant art galleries, museums, and artist studios. We’ll delve into the local cuisine—a mixture of long-held tradition and the sea—while enjoying time-honored hospitality and mint juleps on the porch.
One of the highlights of our time in Savannah will be the Holiday Tour of Homes and Historic Inns. This intimate experience invites you behind the doors of some of the town’s most beautiful residences, festively decorated for the season.
Our accommodations will be at the Forsyth Park Inn. Built in 1893, this once private home combines old-world charm with modern conveniences. Many of the rooms as well as the colorful veranda overlook its namesake park with picturesque fountains and often-photographed trees.
