I like that this beach is not overly developed. Mostly, it's residential with some hotels. Not at all like the NE coast or even down to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. You can kayak, watch dolphins, walk along the beach and I've never experienced crowds of people there. The lighthouse is nice, the restaurants are okay...they have good views:) But it's a nice getaway from the city, I suppose.
Green Meldrim House
This was the headquarters of Union General William Tecumsah Sherman in Savannah during the surrender.
In December 1864, Sherman sent the following telegram to President Abraham Lincoln:
"I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the city of Savannah..." Green Meldrin House is located at 14 West Macon Street in Savannah.
It became a National Historic Landmark in 1976. It is also known as St. John's Episcopal Church Parish House.
Oatland Island Wildlife Center
The Oatland Island Wildlife Center is a fun place to spend the afternoon. There are many walking trails and you will see wildlife in its natural setting. You will also see rescued wildlife. To get there from the Islands Expressway/President Street just after the Whitemarsh Plaza. Follow the Islands Expressway/President Street for 1.3 miles and make a left into the wildlife center. It is a great place for kids and adults. It is easy to fit in the budget; it is only $5 for adults, $3 for kids, students, military or seniors. Children under 4 are free.
Fun place to go downtown
Underground with 3 rooms and a few pool tables,this bar has room for everyone!
The beautiful center bar is a great place to mingle or just chat with your friends.
Be kind to David-maybe he will grace you with his sparkling wit! casual- dressy, everyone stops in at some point on the weekends
If you are south of the Mason-Dixon, Shoney's is never a bad place to eat.
I like both their Chicken Caesar and their Fried Chicken Salads.
My wife chose the Fish and Shrimp.
Both meals were done quickly and to our taste. The lettuce was crisp and the meat and fish were flavorful. Add a cup of coffee and a dessert (we split one of the Walnut Brownies Ala Mode) and we're happy campers.
The service was good and earned a nice tip. The restaurant was "perky" in its red-and-white decor and so clean that you could have eaten off the tables.
The cost was about $15 for the two of us (2003). Chicken Caesar and Fish/Shrimp Dinner
