Savanna for Memorial Day - what will be Memorable?

Cityboy and I will be in Savannah, Georgia from Friday to Monday for a Sunday wedding, but booked the long weekend as a getaway. We're in a VRBO carriage house in the Historic District on East Jones St, and need HiveMind help. We will not have a car, and will be cabbing or shuttling from the airport - suggestions on airport-to-town travel also appreciated. What local specialty food should we make sure to seek out? I'm guessing BBQ, but what else is wonderful in Savannah? What should we definitely do? Museums? Galleries? Theatre? Shops? If you are familiar with Savannah please recommend your favorite places. Favorite restaurants, especially within the area around the historic district are especially welcome. Thank you!

What to do in Charleston/Savannah/Asheville

Four dudes, mid 20s, three cities: Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA, Asheville, NC. We've got two days in each city and none of us have ever been to any of these places. We are pretty much up for anything (hiking, historical sites, food, drinking, etc). So....what should we do?

Oh, Savannah!

My husband-to-be has suggested Savannah as a honeymoon location. He has a friend down there; we enjoy exploring and going to cool places and eating good food and being near the ocean. (Not sunbathing, just dunking our feet and hanging out, maybe riding a boat.) Tell me more, MeFites! [more inside]

Savannah during Christmas

Husband and I are thinking of going to Savannah, Georgia during the Christmas holidays. The threads here on Savannah as to where to go and eat have been very helpful. My question is, if we plan to arrive in Savannah on Christmas Day and stay for about 5, 6 days, will the shops and restaurants be open during that period? Or will they likely be closed for the holidays. Oh, we'll probably drive to Charleston too, so it would be helpful to know if the city closes down during the holiday season as well. Thanks!

Thinking about relocating to Savannah - any advice?

I'm thinking about relocating to Savannah, Georgia in a few months to stay for probs a year or so. My background is in advertising and art and also office admin and plenty of retail, customer service and food service - a little bit of everything. Anyway, I was wondering about cost of living and if it's a cool city to stay in (loved it when I was there) and job prospects. I'm prepping a portfolio to apply to fashion school next fall so I'm looking for a good place to go. Love big cities but they seem to be a massive drain on the bank account (too many awesome rock shows!), but I'm not opposed. Mostly I need a place where I can afford a live/work situation so I can get the artwork done. Any other recommendations for hip / inspiring / artistic / progressive / bike and walk friendly (no car) cities are welcome. Female, mid-20s and tired of the Midwest. :) Thanks in advance!
