They were very helpful and also gave us info about Savannah. Learning about the free bus system (DOT) in Savannah was a huge bonus.

Very quaint town, friendly people. Cute shops and great places to eat. Be sure to visit the Crab Shack, feed the alligators, see the bird santuary and eat great food outside on deck on the bay with the locals. Best ever!
