Savannah Georgia




 April 18-21, 2017

Mid-April brings us into Spring Season, with sunny days and the azalea gardens in bloom. We have planned to travel the back-roads of Florida and Georgia to reach our destination of around 650 miles. Along the way we travel through the old towns of our two states bringing back the feelings of how life was in the 50’s.


Established in 1733, Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia and the location of one of the largest National Historic Landmark districts in the country. This eccentric Southern city beguiles with Old World glamour and romance, culture, and entertainment.
