Hey y'all, this is Peter again writing to you from the Printmaker's Inn trying to give you some good ideas for this coming Valentine's Day Weekend in Savannah.  If you are not interested in doing the stereotypical planned dinner with 40 couples all crammed in next to you then this is for you!  I have only been married for 2 and a half years now, but I am already figuring out that there are great ways to make Valentine's Day really fun and even simple.  

To start off, you cannot go wrong with a drive out to Isle of Hope and simply park your car and just walk around.  It is one of the most beautiful and picturesque little hamlets I have ever been to.  It has a quintessential low country feel with live oaks, spanish moss, old homes and marsh views.  Walking down quiet Bluff Drive at Sunset will match all your visions of a quiet stroll for two.  It is an experience right out of a scene from "Gone with the Wind."  Isle of Hope is only a 15 minute drive from downtown Savannah and the Printmaker's Inn.  On the way back to Savannah stop at Castaways Sandfly for Seafood.  Only locals here so you wont have to deal with gobs of tourists!

Now to the other end of the spectrum.  The next suggestion on our list could also be a lot of fun and is appropriately called the "Cupid is Stupid" bar crawl.  You will tour 12 bars throughout Savannah and get to enjoy many of the great watering holes in town.  This event is held on February 13th. You go to 12 bars throughout Savannah.  It is on February 13th and is run by Stafford Promotions.  The sooner you sign up the better, as you get better discounted rates the earlier you sign up.

My final suggestion for a terrific Valentine's celebration is pretty simple - just spend the weekend enjoying our great city.  One of our favorite things to do here, at the Printmaker's Inn is to stroll through the city at sunset, perhaps with a glass of wine or a beer in hand ;).  If you love architecture and history, Savannah holds many treasures for your enjoyment - just take a leisurely walk and you can find many of the little nooks and lesser known crannies of this city.  Most folks just walk down Bull, Broughton, Bay and River Street.  There are so many little streets that do not get much attention, but are a lot of fun to walk through.  My favorite section of town is anything South of Bay Street, West of Lincoln Street, North of Liberty and finally East of Broad Street.  This is the oldest section of Savannah and has amazing wood framed houses dating back to the 1700s.  It is a lot quieter in this stretch of Savannah and makes it more enjoyable in my opinion on busy weekends.  It is also home to the smallest house in Savannah on the Northwest corner of Greene Square.  

We always have lots of fun ideas on things to do in Savannah so don't hesitate to message us here at the Printmaker's Inn!
