Show Notes

Savannah, Georgia is known as “The Forest City” for good reason. Arching live oaks, swathed with picturesquely gothic drapes of Spanish moss add charm to a city which is already beaming with historic architecture. Along with being a beautiful city, there is always something to do in Savannah. The city’s many annual events include the film festival, the music festival, the book festival, the house and garden tour, and the second largest St. Patrick’s day parade in the country.  While there are no major sports franchises in the city, it boasts 23 golf courses and the Savannah Bananas, a minor league baseball team with a circus-like atmosphere. On Episode 55 of Retire There with Gil & Gene, find out why all that and mild winter weather drew John and Mary Poggioli to Savannah.
