Downtown Savannah Georgia

Your Ad Here
Here we go. Driving in to any downtown area is usually challenging in an RV. Savannah is no different. Worth it? YUP! Fo’ Sho’
P1050076

You know you’re near the center of the city when you see the city hall. I couldn't find parking so I ended up parking in front of a yellow curb near city hall. I carted my 26 pound box about 2 blocks to the FedEx office. They helped me ship the eBay item out to my buyer in California using my Fedex account. My WORK here is done. Now, it's all fun & sun & relaxation. Yeah right.

On Hermans recommendation, I went to dinner at Tubby’s on River St. I met a cool couple from Plymouth Mass. They're driving to Florida. They have a vacation home in Lovell Maine near Shawnee Peak ski area. They were seated one table away and we chatted throughout our meals.

This is a busy port. Lots of cargo container ships coming from Hong Kong heading here.

We have an interesting parking spot. We pulled in around 3pm and paid for 2 hours parking. You have to pay from 9am to 5pm but after that, I guess it’s up for grabs? Free? See the RV?

The view out the window. We are a stones throw from the bayou café on River St. P1050099

Cool mossy trees.

Busses look like trolleys here. Lots of cities do this to create a different vibe. It works.

I must say that the 2nd person I had contact with here asked me for money... $3 to be exact. I was talking with a couple asian students trying to find the local FedEx. They helped me but then an older black guy pretending to help me with directions came on the scene. After I told him I was all set, he asked if I could help a veteran. Bums always try to tug at your heart strings. Yeah, ok... I believe that you're a veteran. Ummmm, NOT!

That's not a good start to my Savannah visit. You know I hate BUMS.

  1. Ya, those darn bums ARE everywhere!! I'm in Fort Wayne, IN and just got hit up for "spare change" outside Cracker Barrell!! I told the guy I don't carry cash, and I thought he was going to stroke out from laughing...."everybody carries cash" was his reply.....I emptied all my pockets just to show the guy I was telling him the truth..........

  3. John - I agree they are everywhere. I think they need to know that we are on to them. Their sad stories have been done to death and we're not buying them anymore.

    I say to hell with all the bums in this country. I will not give a dime to another bum ever.

    If a guy is playing an instrument and "busking" then, sure, I'll give him some money. But if some dirtball just comes up to me and asks me for money... screw him or her. It ain't happening. This country boy is wise to your games.

  4. We were in Savannah last year this time and stayed in the visitor's center parking lot. I think it was $10 a night - no hookups. But it's an easy walk to everything you want to see.

  8. Hi, I do believe your website could possibly be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however,
    if opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, great blog!

  12. Georgia must be a lovely place! It must be a nice place to live in. I've been planning to visit to Albany, Georgia for quite a while now. I've been writing down every place, landmark, and restaurant that I want to pay a visit to. Do you have any suggestions on what's the best place to visit in Georgia?

  13. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due
    to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
