Experience the City of Savannah Georgia by staying at the Inn at Ellis Square
Established during the early 1700s, the City of Savannah in Georgia is among the oldest in the country. It is also among the largest of the National Historical Landmark Districts in America. Because of this, Savannah offers a variety of historical sites in addition to a Victorian Era atmosphere which the traveler can take in and experience through the numerous public parks and rich display of vintage architecture all around. A number of these sites can be seen in the historic district of the city, which is composed of 22 squares in total. Some of these squares have been lost throughout time due to urbanization and the commerce of man, but efforts have been made to restore these the way they once were.
Among the lost squares in the historical district, is Ellis Square. In 2010, it was completely restored to its former glory, making the Inn at Ellis Square an ideal place for accommodation while experiencing momentous Savannah. Just like the City of Savannah, the Inn offers a nostalgic and cozy stay through its period ambiance while maintaining the quality and efficient amenities of modern times.
This welcoming piece of history offers easy access to nearby sites such as the Old City Market, the Owens-Thomas House Museum, various African-American heritage sites and the Colonial Park Cemetery which dates back to the earliest colonies in Georgia. Noteworthy attractions such as the Savannah River Boat Cruises, Saltwater Dolphin Tours, the Savannah Theater/Jukebox Journey and a number of museums that will pique any interests, can also be enjoyed nearby.
For those who want a more out of the box experience, join the Savannah Ghost Tour, a ninety-minute lantern led tour and listen to the guides as they give the historical account of events on civil war apparitions at the Marshall House, hotel haunting at the Kehoe House, and top-floor incident in the Hampton-Lillibridge house, known to be the most haunted house in America. And if that did not scare you enough, there are other haunted ghost tours in the area. You see, the American Institute of Parapsychology has labeled Savannah as “America’s Most Haunted City.” Some of the popular tours to choose from are the Oglethorpe Haunted Trolley Tours, Ghosts and Legends Tour, and Savannah Haunted Pub Tours.
A trip to Savannah would not be complete if you do not get to try the sumptuous food in the area. Check out the best chicken pie pot served at The Lady and Sons, the mouth-watering pizza at Mellow Mushroom, and the delicious burgers at Crystal Beer Parlor. For those with a sweet tooth, never miss the desserts to die for at Lulu’s Chocolate Bar and yummy ice cream at Savannah Candy Kitchen.
