It was a quick stop but we camped a few nights at the Thousand Trails in Yemassee, South Carolina. It was a very wooded and nice campground far removed from most anything.
We drove the 45 minutes into Savannah, Georgia one day. The drive to town is super lush and green and beautiful.
We took an Oglethorpe Tours Trolley Tour around the historic district of Savannah. Tells about the 24 green squares of the city and lots of history and movie trivia. (Get a groupon and/ or use promo code "concierge" on their website.)
With our tour we got an hour and half trip around the city. Then were dropped wherever we chose. They then would pick you up at any stop and drop you off for the rest of the day. Matilda really wanted to do the haunted tour as well some day.
We ate at the Old Pirate House which is famed to be part of Treasure Island story and was built in 1754. It was a delicious meal and not crazy expensive. They have a buffet lunch and kids menu as well. There was a pirate lady wandering about the restaurant sharing some of the history of the building and entertaining people with her pirate speak. The kids menus turned into great hats.
We were so lucky to have the Ackerman's come and stay in the same campground as us for a night. We had a great time hanging out with Lisa and Ryan and the kids tumbled and played as tho they hadn't been apart at all. What a treat.
Short and sweet visit
