Last month E and I spent a week in Savannah, Georgia. He was busy with work on my first day in the city, so I went wandering. It turned out to be an extraordinary day. There was a Veteran’s Day Parade that caused the trolley tours to be rerouted! Typical tourist tours are pretty basic, but having a driver working with an unfamiliar route gets you a very special view of the city.
I took a trolley, watched the parade, went to the Telfair museum’s art fair, observed Savannah College of Art & Design students in their natural habitat, & went on tours of historic buildings. Thanks to being the last tour of the day, I was the only person on my tour of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low’s birthplace. Personalized tours all day long! Being a good tourist is a 9-5 job.
