Savannah gets a bum wrap for the summer with everyone saying how hot it is and how humid and don’t you dare go to Savannah in the summer as it’s just terrible.
Well, I’m here to tell you that’s a bunch of hooey. Here are ten great reasons to visit Savannah in the summer.
First off you’re never far from the water and that in it self is a mighty big plus. There’s a breeze and just looking at the wet makes you feel cool and if you get too hot you just jump right on in.
Second because of all that there water you can do whatever floats your boat. You can rent one of your own or just hop on board someone else’s.
Third there’s the beach. I ask you, is there anything more fun than play in sand? You can build with it or play on it and when you get too hot there’s that there water to jump right on in.
Then there’s the food!! Oh, Honey, the food! Down-home Southern cooking to the ever-present pralines, you won’t go home hungry. In the summer, it’s water-to-table coastal cuisine that takes top billing and should be at the top of your to-do list. A cool treat goes a long way in a Savannah summer, which may explain why Leopold’s Ice Cream has been doing such good business since1919.
And Savannah comes highly recommended. Before he hit the big time. Sixty years ago, Elvis Presley shook his hips at a Savannah audience for the first time.
And they there’s the night life. Savannah doesn’t hide from its well-earned reputation as America’s most haunted city — and ghost tours help bring these legends to life. If you don’t believe in ghosts when you come you will when you leave.
And then there’s Slow-vannah to consider. You don’t have to be in a hurry to see Savannah. It’s the perfect place to stroll past the red-brick mansions and wrought-iron fences of Jones Street or the boutiques and galleries in City Market.
There’re plenty of other reasons to come to Savannah in the summer and with a little luck you won’t come across any of those pesky bodies that Reagan and I keep running into. You all have a great summer now, ya’ hear.
