#Savannah: Paint the Town with Red, White and Blue Flair, Says the Top-rated Zeigler House Inn

SAVANNAH Georgia (June 16, 2014) -- On the 4th of July in Savannah's Deep South after a salute to America's red, white, and blue flag, you'll be dazzled when you discover even more red, white and blue in some of the best Savannah food, eateries, picnics, and beverages.

Any Savannah foodie's bucket list for July 4th will be long and tantalizingly delicious. We'll be among the first to start off this patriotic Savannah nod with specifics -- white wine, white linens, blue crabs, Savannah Red Rice, red and white radicchio, red pepper jelly or vinaigrette with red onions, Strawberry Mint Sweet Tea, and laced in somewhere are red fish [red drum], new red potatoes, red hot chili pepper, "red apples" ['tomatas'], red wine vinegar, red peppercorns, white rum, red wine, and bite-into-sweet, white Vidalia onions.

How is that for starters?! 
From this top-pick place to stay in Savannah, we might ask, too "What's the best part of all this?" We cheer, salute, wave our pride-provoking flag of the United States of America, sing patriotic tunes, and dine on red, white and blue ... just about every day of the year!

Yes, Sir and Ma'am! In Savannah, Georgia, we're patriotic not just on the 4th of July, Independence Day Weekend, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and D-Day!  It may seem a small thing, but you'll see our Savannah inn's American flag flying year around.
Every Fourth of July, we flaunt Uncle Sam hats, wave our flag, and watch fireworks shoot sparks into the night sky. But many never even stop to ask the question, “Why does America salute the red, white and blue?” -- Time magazine, Nicole Greenstein, July 4, 2013
