Before we left the East Coast, we decided to venture out little north and visited a coastal town Savannah, Georgia. A few fun facts about Savannah: The second most haunted city in America. Named one of the friendliest cities in the world, nicknamed the Hostess City. A famous scene from movie Forest Gump was shot here.
The historic district is filled with cobble-stoned streets, 22 park-like historic squares with water fountains, statues and oak trees covered with Spanish moss.
We discovered a neat campground close to town, decided to stay for a couple of days and explore this coastal part of Georgia. After that, we quickly visited Tybee Island, a small beach town only 20 miles from downtown Savannah, with beautiful wide beaches and Civil War site at Fort Pulaski National Monument.
Well, our mission was accomplished, the expedition to the east coast is finished and we are heading back to the West. Taking the same route again, staying very close to the Gulf of Mexico because it's January and we don't want to risk frigid temperatures.
