Trip Report Georgia, Old Savannah Tour

With what I consider a limited time to explore Savannah, I set out from the Mulberry Inn with a definite plan to accomplish this.

Crossing Bay Street which use to be the longest interstate highway in the country, running from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, I descend a set of steep stairs and I am along a part of the Savannah Riverfront.

Here, I board a trolley and for US$20 I will get a 90 minute narrated tour of this beautiful and historic city.

From learning about a local resident, Johnny Mercer, famous song writer of “Moon River” fame to seeing the locations where many famous movies like Forrest Gump were shot, this turns out to be a very interesting and entertaining tour.

Did you know that the windows of the Methodist Church here are from Tiffany's and that Lewis Tiffany came here himself from New York to help install them? Of course, it was right after he had breakfast.

Also as a part of your tour you can get reasonably priced dental work done by “Smiling Sam”, the pirate dentist. Today, we are told that extractions are half-off.

If your dental work is fine then you just might want to find yourself in the company of one fine and entertaining “Georgia Peach”, Mrs Catharine Greene.
