The Best of the New Old South!!
Keep calm and Trolley on!
Hello Love Muffins!
So this year is my daughter’s first Spring Break from College and I was lucky enough to have her still want to vacation with me (-:
My daughter is very passionate about our African American Culture and History, so I searched for something that we could do to not only have fun but to also pay homage to our History. I found the perfect place right here in Georgia! Savannah that is!
This City has everything in my opinion! Southern Charm, Eclectic, Full of history, and surrounded by gorgeous views of water!
There was sooo much to do and see in Savanah that I couldn’t fit it all in just One Post! So starting today. I will be posting a series of Me and my Daughters adventures of the New Old South!!
So lets begin! My very 1st recommendation is to schedule a Trolley! Savanah has very narrow streets, lots of traffic, and scarce parking! So getting around by car near some of the main points of interest can be a night mare!
We scheduled with Old Time Trolley Tours. This Trolley Company has the option of choosing an All Day Tour Regular Price $32.00 per person (on sale now for $28.80) and 12.50 per Child (on sale now for 11.25). Along with several other Tour options such as Night Haunted Tours…. boohaha!
In my opinion its worth every penny! I ordered my tickets online at www.trolleytours.com ….printed them out, parked my car FREE at the Welcome Center (located at the 234 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd), and Hopped on a trolley, that has 16 stops around the City of Savannah. The stops are near Historical Sites, Parks, Restaurants, and several Hotels. The tour is guided and comes with a pamphlet to advise of which stops to get off on, for a particular attraction or restaurants. The Trolley runs every 15 minutes so you can get off and do what ever you would like to do at one stop and then get back on the trolley and head to another stop. This made getting around Savanah very easy!
Although I feel like Old Time Trolley Tours was an excellent choice for me and my daughter. While on the First African Baptiste Church Tour, another Tourist advised us that there is another Trolley Company called Oglethorpe Grayline. This Trolley Company is a little less expensive for there On and Off Tours at $25.00 per person. Plus Oglethorpe Grayline Tours offer a free service that allows you to call them to find out the exact time of the next Trolley at your pick up stop! I think that I’m going to try them out on my next visit to Savannah! You can research them at www.oglethorpetours.com
