    Me and hubs are going to go on our first vacation (yes, we don't get out of our state ever) and thinking a road trip to Georiga will be a good start. Not too crazy of a drive. Thinking Savannah or Helen. Anyone been?

    Savannah is incredible but the heat and humidity are brutal this time of year. Good time of year to visit Asheville.

    Flew into Savannah last month, drove to Hilton Head, nice place, great beaches. Wished we had more time to look around Savannah, the place looked really interesting.

    Helen is a fun day trip but that's it. On the weekends, the traffic through the stupid "Bavarian" town can be a bitch. Savannah is a great town with a great history.

    And also, I don't care about beaches. Surrounded by them all year round.

    Did a road trip up to Harlem, Ga last October for the Oliver Hardy Fest. On the way back I swung over to Atlanta to track down some Walking Dead film locations. It was a fun weekend and the weather was perfect. Georgia in July can be pretty brutal if you're not used to the heat and humidity.

    It's a typical tourist trap. They have a German festival every year and you can't get near the place. Maybe I'm jaded because I'm from Georgia and I've been up there a million times.

    Yeah. Years ago. One of the best trips I ever took was all over the South East. Savannah is so beautiful. Stayed in a really nice B&B there and had an amazing dinner. I think the rest of the time was spent wandering the streets. Lovely. Go.

    You already have the virus inside of you, but if you're bitten it will become "live."

    If you go, know that the prison is a total loss.

    Exactly. I live in Atlanta and have only bothered going to Helen one time.

    Historic Savannah is gorgeous and interesting. I'd recommend they stay in the historic district, even if it's up on River Street. Everywhere is within walking distance if you stay somewhere within the historic district though I'd recommend staying somewhere in the middle so you can have the best of both worlds (Forsyth Park on one side of town, the river district on the other).

    Read Midnight In The Garden Of Good and Evil before your trip. Mrs. Wilkes has great fried chicken fried chicken. Charleston is another great place to visit and it's not far from Savannah.

    Hilton Head is filled with Northerners, we are now directing them to the beaches in N.C. ;)
