Savannah Wildlife Refuge

On the Georgia-South Carolina state line is a beautiful wildlife refuge to visit easily accessible to the I95 interstate.  For travelers the easiest way to get to this worth while travelers break is to exit in Hardeeville, SC.  You will get off on Hwy 17 and  take it south toward Savannah. There are directional signs along the way. (about 14 miles)

It’s a good idea to  wear tennis shoes or boots because you will want  to get out of your vehicle to see the abundance of birds, alligators, snakes, and bugs. Plan to spend an hour on the 4 mile drive through trail.  There are also walking paths at certain sites.  We did get a glimpse of a bobcat so I stayed close to the truck.

There is no charge to tour this natural habitat of beauty, and for all you sweet hearts you may even get a few love bugs to tag along.

Happy travels, bug repellent needed

Cool tip for traveling with kids

Technology sure has eased the pain of hours in the car with the little folks but there are still stops along the way that bore them to no end.  I discovered this inexpensive way to keep them happy campers. I  found that giving them their own camera kept them busy enough taking photos of just about everything and everybody.  To keep it interesting they are now “photo bombing” and doing “silly selfies”.  When settling in at  night in the hotels instead of jumping on the beds they seem real interested in downloading and laughing at the photos.  You never know  you may just inspire the next great world photographer.
