Holiday Tour of Homes, Savannah Historic Tour 2011

Have you ever wanted to see the inside of those gorgeous houses around Savannah?  Then take advantage of your stay at a Savannah Bed and Breakfast, during the weekend of December 10-11, 2011 to enjoy the Holiday Tour of Homes.  This yearly event features a tour through some of the city's stunning homes and inns, and the 2011 historic tour of Savannah comes complete with a Victorian Tea and a stage show!
Savannah's Holiday Tour of Historic Homes and Victorian Tea is produced by the Downtown Neighborhood Association.  During this weekend the residents of Savannah's Historic District invite the public into their beautiful homes, all decked out in holiday finery!  Home owners will often have tales to tell about their residence's characteristics and past.  There are two separate tours on Saturday, showcasing a total of twelve lovely homes.
In between the two Saturday tours, there will be a Victorian tea to enjoy at the Downtown Garden Club of Savannah, complete with Victorian sandwiches and other treats!  Members of the Garden Club will be dressed in period clothing.
On Sunday, there will be a tour through a selection of area Inns, including our own Catherine Ward House Inn, and The Green Palm Inn!  The Inn Tour will be followed by "A Christmas Tradition" stage show at the historic Savannah Theatre, featuring music, comedy, and audience participation.
Tickets for each part of the Tour and Activities are available at the Tour Headquarters, but tours do sell out!  Advanced ticket purchase is recommended.  All proceeds go to the Savannah downtown Historic Landmark District.
