This isn't a ride report, but my wife and I spent four days in Savannah  just before the 4th of July.
I would suggest that it would make a great weekend destination for a ride.
I thought I'd throw a few pictures up to give you a little taste of Savannah.
Speaking of taste....bring your appetite as you'll get treated to some great meals while you're there. If you like Southern cooking make sure you go to Mrs. Wilks boarding house for lunch. You'll thank me latter.

Make sure you check out Fort Paluski. Robert E. Lee roamed these grounds just prior to the Civil War.


We got there in time to watch the cannon firing.







If these walls could talk. Just imagine the men that crossed over the entrance bridge and through these doors.





Once in the downtown historic district you'll find plenty of neat old houses. Many were built in the late 1700s.







This one was for sale. Just under 600 square feet. Price.....$285,000



We also visited St. Johns Cathedral.





Not great pictures but you get the idea.







The houses have these markers telling when and for who they were built.






It was sorta like stepping back in time.



The entrance leading to River street off Bay street on the east side of town.



Another shot just around the corner



Savannah seems to have a very active seaport.



More cobblestone roads in the downtown section



My wife even managed to find a few places to shop. Notice the bridge in the background. It takes you into Hilton Head S.C.



The town is build with 12 (if I remember correctly) town squares. Each built as a park, usually with a memorial marker in the middle.













How about this street sign




I loved this sign.




If you decide to go PM me and I'll give you some suggestions and tips for your stay.
Bert

Thanks Bert for posting those awesome pictures! I've been trying to get Swampy to take me there for years but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe once he sees all your pictures his curiosity will be peaked and I'll get a trip out of him!
