Savannah’s rare winter storm closed the city’s major cargo ports for just more than 24 hours last week, an icy hiccup that was quickly overcome through an extraordinary response by several groups, according to Georgia Ports director Griff Lynch.

Summer doesn’t officially begin for a few weeks, but Savannah’s summer break has begun. A decade or so ago, the ending of the Savannah College of Art and Design’s spring quarter was like the flipping of a light switch for the downtown area. Everything would be busy one week, and then the city would be much quieter the next.

Those who have lived here for many years remember a time when spring was the busiest time for visitors in Savannah. From St. Patrick’s Day until the summer heat of June was peak season, but in November and December things slowed down considerably. In 2009, just 18 percent of guests visited in the fourth quarter of the year.

Food & Dining

For the past couple of years, Miss Sophie’s has had the honor of cooking for touring groups visiting our lovely city. We provide dinner at the Mighty Eighth for one of the nights they’re in town. Almost all of the tourists in these groups are retired people traveling with friends or groups.
