A Savannah Destination? Get This Book,
This review is from: Moon Spotlight Savannah & the Georgia Coast (Paperback)
I bought this book because we hope to hit Savannah while on our two week stay in Augusta. This is a very comprehensive book with extensive history and background of Savannah and environs; such information adds variety and interest to this guide book. From the 1700's and James Oglethorpe to the present, the author interweaves nuggets about favorite "sons" (like Paula Dean), and Savannah connected artists, art, books, movies, songs, and famous personalities.
The book includes some helpful street maps that are good starting points for the tourist. I've ordered more extensive maps to supplement the ones in this book. Savannah and the Georgia Coast contains plenty of information for someone planning a trip to Savannah, its outskirts, Brunswick and Glynn County, Jeckyl Island, St. Simons Island, Okefenokee Swamp, and others.
There are plenty of photos in this book that are helpful despite being in black and white.
Prices for food and accomodations can be found here, and I must say that some of them made me glad I was sitting down while reading.
Having two dogs with whom we almost always travel, I was disappointed that there is no mention of traveling with pets and no mention of places that accept pets or references to people or agencies who will pet sit. Other than that little omission, I'm pleased with the information in this little book.
