Why Savannah? Z-to-A Fun Ideas from Zeigler House Inn B&B in Historic Savannah GA

SAVANNAH Georgia (June 18, 2013) – Always at the end of alphabetical listings, Zeigler House Inn bed and breakfast decides to answer the age old question, “Why Savannah?” -- an historical, fun city with fun things to do.

Of course, we’ll begin with “Z”.

Playful & fun, Zeigler House Inn's Jackie Heinz
is dressed as Forrest Gump. Savannah
was a movie location for the popular movie.
"Life is like a box of chocolates."
Z – The place for Zzzzzzzzz’s in Savannah -- Zeigler House Inn B&B. With its easy privacy and distinctive southern comforts, you can enjoy breakfast in bed (if you like), Chilled Tea for 2! (an additional perk for summer 2013), and convenient location in the historic district on Jones Street near Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room.

Y – Y’all! It’s the welcoming term for “you all”. – Y’all will love Savannah!

X – X-ray. Early development of X-ray began here in Savannah, by a Jones Street doctor.

W – Walking! Flat Savannah and east/west, north/south streets make a brisk walk or leisure stroll so easy.

V – Verse to Vegetarian’s haven. Fresh markets, vegan and vegetarian restaurants are near, and plentiful in Savannah.

T – Tea Party for Two! Yes, our Savannah bed and breakfast introduced the “Chilled Tea Party for Two!” as a comp summer 2013 perk. It’s getting great buzz! Tea cafes, too, like Savannah Tea Room, and SCAD's Gryphon serve up delicious tea lunches. Southern tea (sweet tea, of course) is year around.

Flag Day in Savannah GA: Our Inn’s USA Flag Flies and We Tell Our Southern Stories!

Overlooking Jones Street, the American flag flies
at Zeigler House Inn's historic bed and breakfast.
SAVANNAH, Georgia (June 13, 2013) – Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the U.S. flag on June 14, 1777.

Two years earlier, June 14, 1775, the United States Army was founded when the Continental Congress authorized enlistment of ten companies of riflemen to serve the United Colonies. Through the years, the United States Army has served on every continent in defense of Liberty. Thank you, U.S. Army!

Full of pride that we live in America the Beautiful, home of the brave and free, we daily fly the American flag! We love seeing it at Zeigler House Inn on beautiful Jones Street in the historic district.

The City of Savannah history points to a Flag Day Parade in 1916.

Girl Scouts marched in a neat cluster in mass with more associations, each person waving a flag!
“The old flag probably never looked more beautiful than when it came down Bull Street like a flood….” – Source: City of Savannah, A Century of History, 1910 ~ 1919
Interesting, isn’t it? When one wants to focus on a topic like Flag Day, we stumble upon what begins with an interesting “flag” story.  Thereafter our eyes are open to so much more!
