Where I stayed
Red Gate Farm RV Resort
Sheltered beneath a thick canopy of live oak trees, dripping with Spanish moss, the city’s National Landmark Historic district showcases world class antebellum, Victorian, Italianate, Federal and neo-Gothic architecture. The city is very easy to walk around with a grid layout centred around stunning parks, each with a central statue or fountain. We were able to park the RV at the Savannah visitors centre and walk the one mile along historic streets to the edge of the Savannah River.
After lunch we took a riverboat cruise aboard the Georgia Queen
Following our cruise we walked along Bull Street toward the sprawling green space of Forsyth Park. The park has four beautiful avenues of trees that converge at a central fountain and garden. It was relaxing to sit on the park benches watching the cool water flowing gently from the fountain.
We had read in the tourist information of a restaurant called Belford’s Savannah (Belford being Jan’s maiden name) so we decided it should be our destination for dinner. The restaurant specializes in seafood and steak and we enjoyed a beautiful seafood dinner. Inside the restaurant are photographs of the Belford family who ran a wholesale food company on the site. W. T. Belford purchased the building in 1913 from Savannah’s Hebrew community. The company was an integral part of the City Market, the bustling social and commercial heart of early Savannah.
