Let’s get ready to ramble - Savannah style.

The rich history and architecture of Savannah will be on display during the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation's Fall Ramble, which will be held Oct. 6 through Oct. 8.

The event was scheduled to be held in 2016 but was postponed because of Hurricane Matthew.

The tour includes historic private homes and sites and the lowcountry of the Moon River District. Stops include Ardsley Park, Kensington Park and Magnolia Park.  On Oct. 8, guests will wrap up the Ramble weekend by touring historic waterfront homes on Isle of Hope and learning about the historic Gullah Geechee community in Pin Point.

Visitors will go for the tour, but who can go to Savannah without indulging in great food?

Special dining events will be held all weekend. For instance, Friday night, visitors will have cocktails and dinner in the newly rehabilitated Machine Shop at Kehoe Iron Works, a collection of historic industrial buildings; On Saturday morning, breakfast will take place at the grand Lucas Theatre downtown; and Saturday night, ramblers will have a traditional lowcountry boil at Mary and Howard Morrison's Lebanon Plantation.

A wide variety of registration options are available. Prices range from $100 to $265.
