This Weekend in Georgia

This weekend begin your holiday season with a visit to the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low and the Pine Bows and Holy Swags Victorian Christmas Gaslight Tour in Savannah, Georgia. The event is being held on Friday, November 21, and begins at 6:45 PM. Guests sing Christmas carols and tour the home at night illuminated only by 1800s-era gaslight. Once you're in Savannah be sure and stick around because on Saturday, November 22, the Low birthplace is throwing "Christmas 1886 with the Gordons." Come prepared for a Southern Victorian Christmas. Admission is charged for both events, and reservations are suggested. For more information visit the birthplace website.

6 to 9 PM every night through January 3rd except Christmas Eve. For more information visit the Rock City website.
