nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.

the overall pace slow, touristy and the nearest big cities are Jacksonville 2+ hours, Charleston 2.5hours, and ATL 4 hours.

Been there a couple of times. Rented a cottage out on Tybee Island.

Definitely nice for a visit. Love the moss hanging from the trees.

 What time of year have you been to Tybee? From a brief surf online, I'm getting the sense it's worth the flex.

Pretty much any observations of those who have been ... good places to check out, things to look out for.

Saw very little of Savannah. However, I found it to be a lil more hip than perhaps one would expect. Sensed an element of a kind of displaced liberal chic for a southern city. Also reminded me of Charleston, SC (saw very little there as well on that asylumseeking mission) in an old money way.

(A while back I discovered a thread dealing with Charleston, SC ... might append an opinion there ... eventually).

Re: Savannah ... it's difficult to shake the sense that the old money has roots in America's entanglement with enslavement. All the standard indicia of that edition of devious alliances were present on the city's historical landscape.

I eh meet any, buh fuh sure sure ah Trini or three definitely hadda be on the ground there.

Precisely.

It was actually in November. It was getting a little cool at that point, but we were escaping even colder weather in NY so it was ok. Here's a shot of the beach there:

Mih brother went on some haunted tour that included a trip to a famous cemetery and the idiot was taking pictures, i eh know what wrong with dat fellah. I was in a bar drinking on the riverfront or whatever dey call it (nice lil area to lime).  Anyway in one of de pics it has this white image of a lady that look like a ghost.  He didnt notice it until I pointed it out to him so my boy went back to cemetery next day and drag me along to check out the spot to see if it had a statue to logically explain the image.  There was no damn statue there.  He decide to take more pics of the spot to see if the image appear, I nearly drive off and left his a$$ there.  I don't believe in them thing but that pic raise some serious doubts.
