Trip Report Florida/Georgia/South Carolina

Spent a couple of days in Savannah and enjoyed the city. Took one of the trolley tours (www.oglethorpetours.com) and it was perfect. Go with Oglethorpe, it was cheaper and you get the same service as Old Town Trolley. Visited Tybee Island and explored the lighthouse and battery.

Drove to Beaufort, Port Royal, and Hilton Head for the day. Not much in Beaufort, but many really nice houses. Tried local seafood at Moon Doggies in Port Royal. Yummy shrimp burger. Hilton Head was a let-down, not what I thought it would be. Hilton Head Brewing is horrible.

Spent a few days in St. Augustine. Did the normal tourist type stuff in the historic area. Visited the Gold Hall of Fame. Drove to Daytona Beach and had lunch at the North Turn (http://www.racingsnorthturn.com/) and visited the speedway.

In Jacksonville, we walked down by the water and stopped by the Jaguars stadium. Did not spend much time here. From where we stayed and where we drove, Jacksonville looked really nice.

Here are the breweries/brewpubs we hit down there.
Anheuser-Busch Brewery (Jacksonville) = boring tour
Seven Bridges Grille & Brewery (Jacksonville) = good beer
Bold City Brewery (Jacksonville) = really good beer and service
River City Brewing Company (Jacksonville) = horrible beer and service
Ragtime Tavern & Seafood Grill (Atlantic Beach) = ok beer and good service
A1A Aleworks (St. Augustine) = ok beer and good service
Karibrew Brew Pub and Grub/Cafe Karibo (Fernandina Beach) = horrible beer and service
Moon River Brewing Company (Savannah) = great beer and service
Hilton Head Brewing Company (Hilton Head Island) = horrible beer and mediocre service
