Make Sundays special again. Spend one more "Sunday in Savannah" at The Presidents’ Quarters Inn, with special rates over the 2010 Valentine's Day / Presidents Day long weekend.
SAVANNAH, Georgia (January 18, 2010) -- No matter the season, Savannah serves up the best the South has to offer, from scrumptious comfort food to friendly locals and world-famous hospitality. Savannah’s milder climate makes its pedestrian-friendly historical district—with dining, shopping, and entertainment nearby—an ideal place to visit any time of the year.
Sundays are an especially good day to soak up what’s special about Savannah. Wake up to the sound of church bells and saunter over to one of the town’s legendary squares to experience the unhurried pace of Southern living. See urbanites enjoying a cup of coffee, families on a morning walk and worshippers in their Sunday best.
Hear the whole creation shoutin’
Praise the Lord.
As immortalized by songstress Nina Simone, “Sunday in Savannah” is indeed an experience to behold, with the town serving as a crossroads for a multitude of faiths. Did you know that Christ Church on Johnson Square, established in 1733, is considered Georgia’s Mother Church? The oldest Black church in North America (theoldestblackchurch.org) is Savannah’s First African Baptist Church, founded in 1775. And Temple Mickve Israel on Monterey Square houses the third-oldest Jewish congregation in the U.S. (mickveisrael.org)
French Catholic émigrés came to Savannah in the aftermath of an uprising in Haiti shortly before the end of the 18th century. They established Savannah’s first parish, called the Congrégation de Saint Jean-Baptiste. Today the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist (savannahcathedral.org) is Mother Church of the Savannah Diocese.
Savannah’s rich and fabled history is also represented through its architecture. A stroll along the historic district, considered the largest registered urban National Historic Landmark district in the country, features architectural gems such as the Owens-Thomas House (telfair.org), one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in America.
In the middle of it all is The Presidents’ Quarters Inn. Overlooking Oglethorpe Square, the Inn’s 16 newly renovated guest rooms offer the best of both worlds: Old World elegance and charm and modern-day amenities. The property, a merging of two 1855 Federal mansions, is a place where generals, governors, politicians and business pioneers have gathered and helped shape Savannah’s place in history.
