Beyond hospitality and top-tier lodging in the historic district -- juggling relaxation, bucket lists, and travel pleasures for traveling guests -- local Romantic Inns owners flock to be active in neighborhood outreach, culture, society, and community philanthropy.

As part of a year around effort to honor America's military families, many of our Romantic Inns of Savannah B&B owners are busy already assisting the Weddings for Warriors Project in Savannah, Georgia USA for the mid-January 2015 weddings. For months now bed and breakfast inn owners have accelerated efforts, adding volunteer enthusiasm and resources to accomplish the wedding plans and behind the scene logistics for what will be ONE full day of weddings in Savannah.

During this week of Thanksgiving, this blog post is to say, "America's military couples, thanks for giving of yourselves"! 

We want to extend this thanks further now, adding our best wishes, along with our small business gratitude for these opportunities through Weddings for Warriors to be "giving"!

Savannah Georgia’s history is literally at the doorsteps and front yards of the homes and businesses in its Historic District. It’s often said that history here is like trudging through a thick soup. That or a boggy slurry of things long past. Stop for a quick drink, you’re hanging out in a space where pirates once drowned their thirsts. Stop for coffee, you’re standing where the Liberty Boys stood. Have a fine meal, Civil War graffiti adorns the wall. Run your hand along a brick wall and your fingers brush the prints of slaves who shifted and positioned wet clay two hundred years before.

Being here is sometimes like being there -- back there in time -- that is if you are one of the many folks who say they can feel history. Feeling history is hard to explain to those who unconsciously skip across the surface of the nebulous bouillabaisse of antiquity. Those of us who don’t or can’t or won’t find it pleasurable. Take any route through the city and some small morsel from the consomm√©, here or there, will reward you for your trudging onward.
