Victorian neighborood in Savannah
We followed the path of the touristic trolley! That was a good call, we spent some time in this gorgeous neighborhood with big victorian houses.
spooky and romantic
Historic park of Wormsloe,
I went there to see the unique oak alley, which stretches over more than 2 km. It’s very cool to drive under this arch. But this park is more than that, it’s also the first site of Georgia occupied by English settlers. John Noble, the founder of Georgia got there in 1736.
The sky was dark, and the wind was blowing. The water was really warm and we walked on the burning sand. The storm hit us and we found refuge in our car. This beach is gorgeous, the town itself was mostly touristy and not really quaint. See more of the Georgia and South Carolina coast on this article.
