Savannah, Georgia, is the more often visited coastal city than Charleston, South Carolina, which we have visited some weeks ago. Like Charleston, Savannah has lots to offer with all the huge oak trees covered with Spanish moss, large historic districts with cobblestone and notable antebellum houses and even a gothic church, a river walk etc.. but in our view all seems a bit more touristic than in Charleston. Millions of tourists are attracted each year to the city, as it is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in the US and the oldest in the state of Georgia (est. in 1733). It’s an important Atlantic seaport, so you may see huge container ships going by the Savannah river. The area by the river reminded Sarah of her time in London and “Jack the Ripper” stories from the London dungeon. It has a “medieval times” feel there.

Savannah knows how to decorate the city nicely for Christmas.. and we enjoyed some Christmas shopping here 😂🙈
And the citizens know how to celebrate.. lot’s of people wearing “Christmas clothing” and celebrate in the city, which is together with New Orleans one of the few cities where you may drink alcoholic beverages openly on the road.
Our second campground in Savannah was a little old farm with horses, goats and chicken. Dominik and especially Eyra seemed to have made good friends there 😄:
And here our fun trip to the pharmacy.. first, Eyra was peering the whole time in to check where Dominik went..
…and we really had to laugh out loud when buying this typical Swiss product (Similasan), which is described as: trusted for over 35 years in the cold, dry and pollen heavy climate of Switzerland. There you go.. that’s our climate! 😂
Nature around Savannah is gorgeous, lots of swamps, oaks and Spanish moss. The Skidaway State Park has lovely trails for a good walk with the dog:
So cute! We think these are tracks of a raccoon.

Between Savannah and Tybee Island is Fort Pulaski:
See Three on the Road further south the coast in St. Augustine, Florida for their stay over Christmas.
