The family and I discovered this jewel years ago when we took the kids on a history vacation. We visited Camden, SC, Patriot's Point near Charleston, SC, several other historic sites, finishing our trip in the Savannah/Tybee area. The kids were in elementary school at the time and thoroughly enjoyed crawling over all the ships, Revolutionary and Civil War sites, and climbing the lighthouse at Tybee. They each got certificates for that! This is when we all fell in love with the Savannah/Tybee area. There is so much history to explore and the area is just beautiful!
Time to plan that summer vacation? Make it fun and educational! Visit the National Park Service for parks, sites, and ideas in your area. ~Michael S. Pauley
