Beautiful Savannah, Georgia

by Alissa


Our two weeks spent in Savannah, Georgia flew by!  I quickly fell in love with the historic architecture, art districts, bountiful live oaks dripping with Spanish moss, numerous museums, and the many city parks offering up a contemplative pause.  The city is very pedestrian friendly.  I enjoyed the hours spent walking around downtown, but if exploring the historic district on foot doesn’t appeal to you, the trolley tours are a great option.

Another day walking around historic Savannah:

We stayed at King’s Ferry RV in Richmond Hill, which is about 20 miles from Savannah.  It is definitely the tiniest RV park we’ve stayed at, but the kids were happy to have an un-manicured yard space to themselves.  They quickly went to work building themselves a shelter out of branches, vines, yarn, and discarded pieces of flooring they found.  As usual, we also used the outdoor space as a schoolroom.

I’m glad we made time to visit the Richmond Hill History Museum.  Hub gave us a thorough and informative tour and let the kids ask him a million questions.  I learned that Henry Ford and his wife spent their winters here and greatly influenced the town and its residents.
