It’s always great to have loved ones come to visit and stay with you. You get to be a guide for a few days as you show them around your town and your favorite places. It’s easy to feel stressed when you want to make sure everyone has a memorable experience. Scout’s mission is to make sure you always have plenty of options at supporting local and experiencing Savannah and all it has to offer. To that, we have put together a list of things that we hope you will find helpful and happy planning.

Get some coffee or wine and hang out in the back yard making s’mores and talking about old times at Foxy Loxy.

Stop by Tiffani Taylor Gallery at 11 Whitaker Street to browse and pick a Christmas Wish from their tree to help the children and mom’s of @safeshelter1. Then have fun shopping the area for their gifts and feeling all warm and fuzzy.

Pre-order a Cheese and Charcuterie board from one of Savannah’s finest (Chatham Charcuterie, Sarandipity Fare, Honeycombs Graze) and play board games all night.
