First stop after 8 hours of driving we pulled into beautiful Skidaway Island State Park
located in Georgia. We had a spacious horseshoe shaped drive-through site. This state park is very well maintained, trees trimmed and ample space for big rigs, campsites very clean, nice amenities and lots of trails for hiking and biking.
Historic downtown Savannah is 25 minutes from the park. After settling in and relaxing for a day, we were off to explore Historic Savannah. The Visitors Center is the hub for various trolley tours. Old Town Trolleys tour the Historic, Colonial and Victorian districts, which gives the opportunity to admire the architecture, iron work, live oak trees with Spanish moss and so much more. Factual narration, 15 stops with unlimited hop on and off provide a wonderful way to relax and explore. A few favorite stops were Leopold’s Ice Cream, Savannah Bee Company, Forsyth Fountain, Juliette Gordon Low House, Boyd’s Cookies and Candler Oak Tree estimated to be about 300 years old.
Many more interesting stops await us for a return trip, Paula Deen’s, The Lady and Sons Restaurant, Gryphon Tea Room, First African Baptist Church, The Pirates House, Ghost and Gravestones just to name a few we missed!
If you are intrigued by lighthouses you will want to take a short drive to Tybee Island Beach.
A three night stay just wasn’t long enough to take in all this beauty! Georgia will be on our mind in the future!
