The South may be known for its genteel hospitality, but when the time is right, Southerners love to kick up their heels. In Savannah, that time is December 31, when locals gather for City Market’s annual outdoor street party. Kids’ activities are aplenty, and the live music that starts at nine is followed by a fireworks display shot off the pier on neighboring Tybee Island. While there’s nothing wrong with being a landlubber, we suggest booking a cruise on a traditional stern wheel riverboat for dinner, Champagne toasts and the best fireworks views. Then on January 1, spend the noon hour watching participants with titles from Shrimp to Moby Dick (depending on how many years they’ve taken part) brave chilly river waters during the Polar Plunge.
