Catch “The Boulevard” Travel Video in Downtown Savannah Georgia

The Thunderbird Inn recruited more than a dozen of its closest business friends to help film “The Boulevard,” now playing below and on a YouTube screen near you.

The name comes from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, just a block or so away from our retro hotel. We planned the video to showcase the area within a couple of blocks of the boulevard – from Barnard to Boundary streets — a treasure trove of attractions new and old that often fly below visitors’ radar. Ships of the Sea Museum, SCAD Museum of Art, and the Georgia State Railroad Museum are some of the better known destinations in our new video, but we can introduce both tourists and locals to undiscovered gems.

For example, you can drop the better part of 20 bucks to lunch on famous soul food Southern cooking in downtown Savannah – and we’d be among the first to admit it’s worth every penny. But the Boulevard hosts an authentic soul food restaurant where you can fill up for a mere $5 on an equally memorable meal, seven days a week.

So check out our video. It’s a fast-paced preview of what’s in striking distance of the hippest hotel in Savannah! The collaborative video project was developed by Thunderbird Inn’s general manager, Mark Thomas, local marketing consultant Sandy Traub, and Guy Smith’s Popcorn Octane LLC digital production firm based in Hilton Head Island, SC.

Spring has Sprung – Savannah Style

There’s no place on Earth quite like beautiful downtown Savannah, also known as the ‘First City in Georgia’. From the stately historic homes and businesses to the 22 beautiful squares, signs of spring are everywhere. Mother Nature has been very kind to us this year. Temps have been in the 80’s this week. What beautiful weather for ‘playing in the dirt’. Yes, I refer to my job as ‘playing’ because landscaping is my passion. When I’m planting, all the problems and cares in life just seem to take a back burner. I like to think of it as therapy.

One of my favorite places to ‘play’ is the historic Thunderbird Inn located on West Oglethorpe Avenue, just a short walk away from the heart of downtown Savannah. The moment you arrive, the atmosphere makes you feel like you’re right at home. Hats off to Mark Thomas, General Manager, and all his staff for their hard work! Continue reading
