HH to Savannah in December - which city to stay?

Staying in the Hilton Head - Savannah area for 3 days right after Christmas and wondering where it would be best to stay if we want to experience both and not waste a lot of time in the car. A friend told me the traffic on Hilton Head is terrible and you can spend an hour or so getting off the island. Is that true...even in December? Was thinking of stay on HH at a resort, but would be willing to stay in a hotel off the interstate somewhere if it would make moving between the two cities less stressful. But don't know where. Would consider a 3 or 4 star hotel. We will be on our way to Tampa, after we take a short stop in this area. Heard Savannah's historic district is not particularly safe after dark, from a different friend. Traveling with family ( hs/ college kids) so that didn't appeal. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Stay in Savannah and enjoy the city. Hilton Head is a non-event housing development. If you want to stop somewhere else, stop off in charleston. Your HS/college kids might really enjoy Charleston more than Savannah.
If you want a resort that acts like one, go to Kiawah. BUT it is December.

You have two threads. You could have just clicked on your name and gotten the other one back.

I've stayed in Hilton Head twice in the fall and had no problems with traffic. One nice thing about Hilton Head is a lot
of the restaurants have early bird dinners which helps cut cost, had a nice 3 course meal at a place in Harbourtown for $21 plus tax and tip, another night had prime rib for $23. Only stayed near the airport in Savannah and visited Tybee Island for a few hours, so will let the other experts comment on Savannah.
