was right next to our hotel so we drove through it on the way to Newcastle St, in Historic Brunswick, GA. It was pretty to see if you’re close by but not worth driving out of your way to see. We decided to take a walk along Newcastle St in Brunswick. There was a very nice square at one end, a couple of pretty courtyards and holiday lights all along the way. Our favorite by far was a giant blow up leg lamp from A Christmas Story.
We drove to Savannah GA where ate lunch on a bench in Chippewa Square
This is supposed to be where the movie Forest Gump was filmed. After lunch we decided to take a walk around to see some of the other squares. The huge live oaks draped in Spanish moss surrounded by historic architecture do have a certain charm but we were still very aware that we were in a very busy city.
We stopped in at Leopold’s Ice Cream Shop for a scoop of their decadent ice cream and walked on to the Waterfront area. I got cookie ice cream with chunks of chocolate chip cookie in it. It was delicious.
There are over 70 shops and restaurants in the historic buildings along the cobblestone streets and old steam boats that you can take a cruise on.
We drove to the other end of Tybee Island and ordered salads from Pier 16
to bring down to the pier for dinner. Unlike Jekyll Island many of the restaurants here are closed for the season. There is a small grocery store on the island but if you want a big one like Kroger or Fresh Market you’ll have to drive over an hour to Hilton Head, SC. I did really enjoy my salad.
