All is calm and bright here at Azalea Inn and Villas. As we head into the holiday season, our innkeeping team has made Azalea Inn look festive. Stockings are now hung, our fireplaces are now strung with garland, and our tree is shiny and bright. But nothing says Christmas quite like the outdoor sparkly Christmas Lights. To help you get into the holiday spirt here are some upcoming events featuring the most festive places in Savannah and the Islands to see holiday lights in 2020.

And our new stop this year, the new Plant Riverside District, is a truly magical winter wonderland, where guests can say hello to St. Nick himself.
