With a full two weeks off for the holidays, we wanted to make a good sweep of some southern spots as an introduction to our new coast. Plotting out a plan from Raleigh to Somewhere-in-Florida started with a stop in Savannah — a place I’ve wanted to visit for a long time after hearing about it from Deke, who’d been there several times. We remembered Laura and Kevin going to Skidaway Island State Park a while back and liking it, and luckily they had a few spots left.
The park is 15 miles or so from Savannah, but worth it — we were in spot #51 which was a corner, really private and within short walking distance to the Big Ferry Trail.
The trail is about 2 miles and has some really beautiful scenery and historical sights — like a still from the 1930s (Skidaway Island was very popular with bootleggers to make and hide moonshine because it was only accessible by boat).
As you can probably tell, it rained a bit while we were there, so we didn’t try out any of the other trails, but we’ll definitely be back in the future!
