RONALD’S TRIP TO SOUTH CAROLINA & GEORGIA, US.

8 NIGHTS/3 STOPS 

 

An architectural wonder, typical Southern food speciality and beach life.
We wanted to discover the oldest city of the United Sates and its fascinating history. We loved the architecture of the houses with typical porches , balconies and colourful facade. One of the features that stands out is the cobblestones street.  It recreates a particular ambience from the ancient colonial life. The southern culinary world is also very rich with BBQ and seafood specialities like fish and chips, oysters, shrimps. People are very welcoming and have a great sense of hospitality. South Carolina has this relaxed atmosphere that makes it easy to travel with a one-year-old baby.

1 NIGHT
  • We stayed at the Brice Hotel. This is a modern hotel, centrally located with a small inside terrace to take a drink in the evening.
  • We walked along the River street: an ancient railway road along the river. We then walked up to West Jones street, known as the most beautiful street in Savannah. We stopped at Forsythe Park, the largest park in town. 
    Ronald went alone for a ghost tour to experiment a paranormal phenomenon  Savannah is known for its haunted locations! We didn’t take the kids on this tour The atmosphere is quite shady.

GOOD TO KNOW

 

  • The summer very hot and humid. It’s better to plan your trip during autumn and spring.
  • We would have stayed in a more modern hotel in Charleston that we discovered when being there: the spectator hotel.
  • Charleston is a paradise for photography with its colourful facade and typical colonial houses. Don’t forget your camera!
  • This is a perfect destination for a travel with a one-year-old baby. The streets are peaceful, there are a lot of parks and you can enjoy the beach life in the afternoon. The temperature is warm and nice.
