Thank You

We spent Dec. 23rd. to Jan 1st. in Savannah. Lots to see and do. RR museum, river front, history of the area. A couple Forts to go see. Paddle Boat ride. Do a tour ride. Parking and driving around is tight. Free parking at the RR museum behind History museum. History Museum is where you get the tour rides, on/off all day. Hope this helps. Loved that area!

I'm not a big fan of Skidway state park to many trees and sandy parking pads. There is also an Air Force heritage museum out by Pooler, GA Later RJD

We stayed in a regular camp ground. They came to the CG to pick us up to tour the city. That was a selling point to me.

I am a huge fan of Skidaway Islands State Park campground! It is one of the most beautiful campgrounds I have been to. Huge oak trees covered in Spanish moss. Level sites. Yes, they are sandy but you are at the coast, everything is sandy. Ask about activities at the campground. They had an evening walk with a ranger through the marsh that was fun for me and the nieces. There are several trails into the marsh and an observation deck. They have a small natural history display with the skeleton of a sloth bear that is huge. The grandkids will love it.

I looked at Biltmore, but the price for 2 people only rubbed me the wrong way. I know that Only $2 per child is not much, but that is also not what I would call family friendly

Skidaway is excellent. The trees actually keep the area much cooler than the surroundings. This is one of our favorite spots. If you don't want this, look at rvparkreviews.com for recommendations.

Other things to do:
Tybee Island for swimming in the Atlantic.
Fort Pulaski for history.
Take one of the ghost tours! They are fun and give you a history lesson at the same time! One of the tours is actually in a hearse! This really is a must!
Take a tour of Savannah. You can either do a walking tour or take the trolley. Pick up a walking tour book at the visitor's center. This is also, where you pick up the trolley.
Better yet, just park at the visitor's center. They have suggestions on MANY things to do, while in Savannah. The trolley or walking will get you to just about all of it!
Plenty of great places to eat in Savannah and surrounding areas.

There is a lot to do in and around Savannah. Have a good time!

Yes, ask about the free trolley. There are for-pay trolleys that will tell you about the area as you ride, but there is a free one with two routes that cross so they cover most of the town.
