Spacious Suites in Savannah's Historic District & Fishing Expeditions to Daufuskie Island
Gnarled tree stumps and twisted branches bleached white by the sun and salt air dot the secluded shore of Driftwood Beach on Daufuskie Island. Though situated not far from both Savannah and Hilton Head, the 5-mile-long island is a serene escape, free of crowds and accessible only by boat. Golf carts shuttle visitors from the beach to the golf course and tennis courts, and boating expeditions into the Atlantic Ocean pass by bottlenose dolphins, rays, and even the occasional shark.
Each of UnReel Expeditions' offerings caters to a different type of adventurer, from first-time fishermen to monomaniacal sea captains seeking revenge from overgrown sperm whales. Helmed by certified skippers, the Family Adventure includes two days of at-sea activities. On the first day, a water taxi ferries travelers to Daufuskie Island for an 8-hour beach day, followed by a two-hour eco-tour during which the captains point out local flora and fauna. Day two is devoted to fishing, shrimping, and crabbing. The other two packages essentially split up the components of the Family Adventure between them: the Redfish Adventure features a 5-hour excursion to the area's hottest spots for fishing, and the Beachcomber package encompasses a day at the beach and an eco-tour.
Nights are spent at the Staybridge Suites, located in Savannah’s Historic District. The roomy suites provide the comforts of home with in-suite kitchenettes, laundry facilities, and complimentary breakfast. The brick-front hotel is close to a trolley-tour stop and several fine-dining restaurants.
Savannah, Georgia: Southern Charm with Elegant Mansions and Quaint Cobblestone Streets
Located along the Atlantic seaboard near the South Carolina border, Savannah attracts millions of visitors each year with its southern hospitality, historical squares, and antebellum mansions. In the Riverwalk area, visitors stroll along cobblestone streets and watch the tugboats plowing through the river. The Historic District is the place to go for a taste of the region's distinctive culinary style, a melding of seafood and barbecue. The city's growing fine-arts scene can be sampled at the open-air City Market, where local artists peddle their wares and darn their smocks in the spot that has acted as Savannah's social and commercial center since the early 1700s.
