Richmond Hill VAThe wonderful thing about living in Richmond Hill is that we are so close to the beauty and history of Savannah. Just a short drive down I-16 and we can access so many fabulous events, restaurants, museums, and parks. I had the privilege of experiencing the Savannah Tour of Homes this month with yours truly, my good friend Cecilia Bird, Realtor and Property Manager in Richmond Hill, GA. She's been anxious to walk a day in my "tourist" shoes and this seemed like a perfect afternoon to get our downtown groove on. I've become accustomed to the driving and parking in the historic district.  

Honestly, at first all the one-way streets and driving around the squares made me a nervous wreck. But, now I'm an old pro. So we parked and walked (6000 steps according to Cecilia) all over the district viewing some of the oldest restored homes in Savannah. We started at the beautiful Anglican Christ Church and got to see their magnificent choir loft set up for their bell choir. In a directionally challenged state for sure, we set off to tour the houses on our list. Residents opened their gorgeous restored homes with original wood floors, leaded glass and claw foot tubs for our enjoyment. This was a perfect spring day for a walking tour and incidentally, is my first experience with spring. Florida has no seasons, and when flowers started to spontaneously erupt in my yard I was absolutely thrilled. 

Spring, summer, winter or fall, Savannah hosts scores of similar events throughout the year. You can rest assured that there's something going on each and every day worth seeing. We laughed a bit and got lost a lot but we had a blast. I implore you to get started in Savannah by getting on the "hop on hop off" trolley to get a feel for what you'd like to see and do.   Tip:  most people don't know that as a resident you can get a hometown pass which allows a free ride on the trolley with one paid rider! Even Cecilia learned something from this SoFl transplant!  I'm committed to getting Cecilia down there at least once monthly!! I expect you all to do so also!
