A Parents’ Day Gift Idea

July 27th, 2013 by Teresa Jacobson

Parents' Day Gift IdeaParents’ Day is coming THIS Sunday (Sunday, July 28, 2013) and we think we’ve got the perfect Parents’ Day Gift Idea.

If you’re anything like us, you’re always looking for a chance to celebrate, and tell the people you love how much you love them. Sometimes that means a little handmade gift, a store-bought card or a hand-penned letter.

Sometimes, you need an excuse to splurge on those you love, and splurge BIG. Splurge on a B&B, we say – and that is our Parents’ Day Gift Idea! Let us tell you more…

Why a B&B Stay is the Best Parents’ Day Gift Idea EVER

Of course our Parents’ Day gift idea is to splurge on a B&B for your parents. We spend all our waking hours making sure that the experience of our guests is one that surpasses expectations and creates dreams.

We aren’t saying that every holiday is an excuse to get up and go spend money, but we are saying that a stay at Azalea Inn & Gardens in Savannah, Georgia is a great gift for your parents this Parents’ Day.

Why ‘Splurge’ ?

Countless guests have come to us through the years as the result of a gift, most commonly an anniversary gift or a Mothers’ Day/Fathers’ Day surprise. Maybe a child, or a group of siblings conspires to purchase their parents a vacation in Savannah.

Those hardworking parents deserve SO much but don’t indulge themselves. Here’s an opportunity!

The Indulgence at Azalea

Our accommodations beckon with the grace an charm of an easy-living hotel mansion – and like all B&B’s, the experience is SO MUCH better than a hotel. Just like mom’s cooking is SO MUCH better than anyone else and dad’s jokes make you laugh SO MUCH harder than anyone else (even when they’re corny).

Amenities at Azalea Inn & Gardens for Your Parents

Our inn amenities and services will give your parents everything they could think of during their surprise gift of a relaxing vacation in Savannah: a delicious 3-course breakfast every morning, a fireplace maybe, a whirlpool tub if they want, wine and hors d’ oevres every evening (except Sunday), a fresh baked dessert every night, super plush and comfy bathrobes, private gardens, a swimming pool and even a NEW private dining menu featuring fresh, local food in Savannah.

We’re convinced that our experience is better than anything else in Savannah.

We invite you to try us out.

Visit Savannah for the Savannah Jazz Festival This Year!

July 9th, 2013 by Teresa Jacobson

Savannah Jazz FestivalIf you haven’t already planned your next vacation in Savannah, visit Savannah for the Savannah Jazz Festival this year! The 2013 Jazz Festival lasts from Sunday, September 22 to Sunday, September 28. That’s a whole WEEK of activities centered around JAZZ, America’s original music.

While we are not going to go into a history lesson about the musical genre, we WILL keep repeating that when you visit Savannah for the Savannah Jazz Festival at the end of September, you will sure be happy with your life choices.

Here’s the highlights of the Jazz festival from where we’re sitting, which is just a short walk from the Jazz Festival’s main stage. By “short walk” we mean less than 5 minutes. Top that!

  • THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2013: Blues Night from 6:30PM to 10:30PM
  • FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2013:  Live Music at the Forsyth Park Bandshell from 7:00PM to 10:30PM
  • SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2013:  Live Music at the Forsyth Park Bandshell from 4PM to 10:30PM
  • SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2013: Children’s Festival from 4PM to 7PM

Forsyth Park’s Bandshell venue is your setting for a jazz-filled picnic extravaganza for 4 nights out of this year’s week-long jazz festival in Savannah. Look how beautiful it is!

Forsyth Park Bandshell

Forsyth Park Bandshell

HEY, listen. We have been living here in Savannah GA for a long time and we enjoy sharing the best of what our city has to offer with our guests. Let me tell YOU, this Jazz Festival is surely one of the best things Savannah has to offer. By way of live music, it is arguably the best, especially because OUR B&B is just minutes away from the main music stage in Forsyth Park.

A little bit of Savannah Jazz Festival history…

The Savannah Jazz Festival is made possible through the efforts of the Coastal Jazz Association – a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to preserving America’s original music: Jazz. We find ourselves taking for granted that musical genre that explores the span of human emotion, expressing our own thoughts succinctly, wonderfully and instrumentally – if only we take time to listen.

The first Savannah Jazz Festival was held at Grayson Stadium on October 1, 1983. The events started as a way for the late Ben Tucker to lend his knowledge and talents to a group of folks interested in learning more about jazz. This year will be especially poignant, as we are sure a lot of the festivities will be celebrated in memory of Ben’s great life, for the legendary bassist from Savannah passed away tragically this year on June 4, 2013.

Walk to the Savannah Jazz Festival from your incredible bed and breakfast room at Azalea Inn & Gardens in Savannah this September for one of the best FREE musical festivals in Savannah this year.

Azalea Inn and Gardens, a Savannah GA bed and breakfast inn, invites you to reserve your room today and begin enjoying the best experiences in our city, which Travel + Leisure Magazine acclaimed as a “World’s Best City.”
