Hunting Island South Carolina is located in Beaufort County, 16 miles east of Historic Beaufort. For Interstate 95 travelers it is between Savannah Georgia and Charleston South Carolina.
The beach is beautiful white sand and it a great time collecting shells. The park has an entry fee and there is also a fee to go up in the lighthouse.
You will find restaurants and small shopping nearby along with the many historic sites in the Beaufort area.
Happy travels…I would put this down as a “must see”
Jekyll Island is located 93 miles south of Savannah Ga, via Interstate 95. Travelers can get a break of a busy commercialized beach that offers a good selection of lodging and a campground.
The island has a long history going back to 1733 and 60% of the island today is not developed.
The island features a historic area that was once a vacation spot for the wealthiest Americans. Other places of interest is the site of Georgia’s first brewery and the Jekyll Island Club where AT&T President Theodore Newton Vail participated in the nations first transcontinental phone call.
The public beach is beautiful, accessible to shops and restaurants.
Be prepared to pay $6.00 for a daily entry pass , well worth it.

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
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.
