      About this trip

      Tickets for the August 3rd Savannah Bananas game are purchased and my confirmation email says this purchase is a "legendary move. the news in Bananaland is spreading about our arrival and the Bananas are throwing a party for us"!  This sets the tone for some of the hilarity that we will be experiencing.  Perhaps you have seen the media coverage on ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS Sunday Morning or Access Hollywood to mention a few.  

      The trip also includes a trolley tour of the Historic District so you can get orientated to the city and explore on your own.  After all, there are only 22 historic squares to visit, each unique but home to beautiful southern homes, museums, historic churches and one of my favorites, the Prohibition Museum!  

      Our accommodations, The Historic River Street Inn, is located on the "rivah" as they say in Savannah, recently renovated and in the heart of the Historic District. 





      Payment Policy

      Please note that you have payment options.  1.  Credit card but there is a fee. 2.  ACH bank draft - no fee or 3.  Venmo or 4.  You can send Patty a check.  If you choose to do this, please email me at tripsbypatty@gmail.com or call 404-791-3166

      Cancellation Policy

      If you need to cancel, refunds are available if you can find someone else to take your place OR trip insurance is also available through this website.  

      What if it rains?

      Savannah does experience "pop-up" summer storms but it is rare that the entire game is cancelled.  The philosophy is that the "show must go on" even if the Banana Ball entertainment is shortened or delayed.

      I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!

      We had a great time, the traffic and construction was a little unforgiving on the way to Asheville. But we had plenty of stops. The stop on the way home at Reynolda was an unexpected surprise and greatly appreciated. Another great trip from Trips by Patty

      I had a great time. The hotel was nice and well located. Ticket/entrance to Biltmore so easy. Bus pickups convenient. Loved the bus stop on the way back in Winston-Salem. Well-organized box lunch there. Very impressed. One thing I will add - a movie was played on the tVs. There was no way to adjust volume since it just blared out. It was way too loud for me (I already have tintinittis) and I wasn't interested in it. But the loudness of it kept me from being able to concentrate on my reading, and I had even put ear plugs into my ears. And some of the ladies near us were commenting loudly about it during the movie. I just waited for the movie to end so I could relax again.

      I apologize for the bad experience with the movie on the bus on the way home. I appreciate the feedback so that I can address this in the future. I don't think I should show movies unless I have the ability to offer with or without audio. Thank you Helen for providing feedback that will help improve future trip experiences.
