Spring time! It’s time to uncover your RV and hit the road. Assuming you used a cover from RVCoversDirect.com, the time that you need to spend cleaning and preparing your RV can be kept to a minimum. Shameless plug for our site aside, if you are in the south and looking for a weekend getaway (or even longer), consider Savannah.
Savannah is about five hours via highway from the location of RVCoversDirect in Chesnee, SC. It’s a longstanding city filled with restored and gorgeous old homes. Savannah is good for relaxing or enjoying yourself at area specialty restaurants, like the Crystal Beer Parlor or Leopold’s Ice Cream. The Crystal Beer parlor is the second oldest restaurant in Savannah (open since 1933). Both restaurants rank in the Top 10 based on visitor reviews entered on www.tripadvisor.com. You might also visit Tybee Island to enjoy the beach and even visit the working lighthouse. River’s End Campground & RV Park or Skidaway Island State Park are worth checking out for camping.
If you are looking for a different experience, consider visiting Bonaventure Cemetery. Yes, you read that right. One of the most interesting locations in Savannah is home to the dead. Roads within the cemetery are well maintained and driving is allowed. If you bring a car along with your RV, you will be happier trying to navigate the cemetery, as the roads are narrow. If you are passing by in your RV, you have the option to simply park and walk around.
As you enter the gates to the cemetery, a hush seems to fall over the world (and generally moves to the rest of the people in your party). Trees dripping with Spanish moss line the roadways. Sculptured markers are intricately carved, guarding the graves in silence but still imploring visitors to take a closer look. If it’s raining during your visit, as it was during ours, the light filtering through the trees is muted, casting an eerie aspect over the graveyard. Landscaping serves to accentuate the beauty of the markers, many constructed from the finest white marble. Be sure to visit the grave of Gracie Watson, the most popular resident of Bonaventure.
