Bring your kids to Savannah
There is so much to do in Savannah – but we’ve taken the liberty of compelling a short list of upcoming events that are local favorites – and all within walking distance from all of our properties.
The Forsyth Farmers’ Market, from 9 a.m.–1 p.m., rain or shine, at the South End of Forsyth Park in Historic Downtown Savannah, a variety of vendors will offer their produce and products to residents and visitors alike.

As if Savannah’s scenery wasn’t colorful enough, the national Color Run will create a fun, color-blasted 5K running experience throughout historic downtown Savannah. This is the perfect race to get a group of friends together and get doused in color! At The Color Run, the start line is its own pre-race party with music, dancing, warmup stretching and giveaways!
