Show Notes: Savannah, Georgia Stopover

Forsyth Park Savannah Georgia

Surprisingly, Savannah, Georgia is not a place we have explored extensively with our kids yet. It’s one of our favorite cities in the US and made our cool places to visit in the USA list for 2020.

It is a place we pop into frequently as a stopover on our road trips down to Florida. From Raleigh, it’s a great half way point. It’s a good stopover place because its quite close to the interstate.

Sometimes we consider Charleston, but it’s quite the detour away so it always makes better sense to go to Savannah.

We don’t do much when we’re there except roam around the river walk, explore the beautiful squares, and hopefully have a nice meal somewhere with views.

It was a little harder this time due to Rona, but at least we still had the beautiful outdoors to walk around in.

Those Savannah squares are something beautiful.

As our youngest, was named in part after Savannah, we really need to come back and explore it properly with them from a kid’s perspective.
