From spoonbills to Spanish moss, Georgia’s Southern charms come alive on this walking tour through Savannah and its lovely Golden Isles.
Outside your window, the Georgia dawn caresses live oak branches draped in Spanish moss, and the birds’ morning chorus hits a crescendo. A flotilla of spoonbills flies by, glowing bright pink. It’s daybreak on Little St. Simons Island, and you’re among the lucky few who get to wake up here. Roll over and contemplate the day’s options presented by this walking tour of Savannah and the Golden Isles. Your naturalist guide knows the island’s every nook and cranny, miles of paths and boardwalks leading to untouched beaches where waves roll endlessly off the open Atlantic. Who knows what undiscovered treasures she’ll lead you to. Later, you may grab a kayak and explore the estuaries looping lazily through the marsh grasses. Or go fishing. Or bird-watching. But first, there’s breakfast. And if it’s anything like last night’s locally sourced Southern feast, you’re ready to dig in.
