Spring Gladness: Life is good–and busy–at Savannah Quarters® in the Spring
Every year it’s the same old refrain for most folks: winter can’t be over with soon enough. But people in the know certainly know that’s not true if you live in Savannah Quarters® where the mild climate last almost all year long. Residents like to make the short drive into downtown Savannah and take advantage of all that the city offers. “Our residents know they have the best of both worlds by living here, springtime or any time,” says Tracy Quarterman, Marketing Manager. “The entire city awaits you, and when you’re done, there’s no place like home—especially when your home is as close as Savannah Quarters®.”
Pretty in pink, lavender, white, purple, red, and, of course, green.
Is there any city more synonymous with azaleas in bloom than Savannah? For the best viewing, Tracy suggests heading over to historic Forsyth Park. You’ll be dazzled by the variety and intensity of spectacular blooms in every imaginable color—and at this time of year, that includes green. “Be sure to visit the Forsyth Park Fountain as well,” she advises. “It’s a tradition in Savannah to dye all of the fountains green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, starting with the Forsyth Park Fountain.”
Ahhh! Did someone say St. Patrick’s Day?
Make sure you mark your calendar next year for St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah. See it like a local: an insider’s guide to the second largest St. Patrick’s Day parade in America.
Erin Go Bragh. Or go home. This year Savannah hosted the second largest St. Patrick’s Day parade in the US (and third largest in the world), just behind the one in New York City. You’ll want to start planning your trip now because hotels fill up quickly, sometimes a year in advance. For the parade, Tracy suggests always arriving early to pick your best spot (some people will camp out overnight in Lafayette Park, the start of the parade route). The parade begins promptly at 10:15 a.m. and is held rain or shine. But she says there’s no reason to stay in one place. “Really, the parade lasts for hours, and the best strategy is to just walk around and enjoy the show. From River Street to Liberty Street, there will be plenty to see and do.” She also adds, “you’ll run into plenty of your friends” along the way.
When the parade ends, and if you’re still up for adventure, Tracy suggests joining the crowd at River Street, where the party will last throughout the night. Also plan on joining us the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day to take part in our annual family-friendly Tara Feis Irish Celebration. It’s a real taste of Ireland, and features live performances, food, art, crafts, and games hosted with Irish ceremony, tradition and hospitality.
Bottom line: You can go out and have as much fun and people watching as you prefer, then head home to Savannah Quarters® whenever you’re ready.
