When it comes to road trips from Atlanta, I have a 6 hour in-the-car limit for how long I’m willing to travel on the road. Don’t get me wrong – a properly executed road trip for 20+ hours is a blast with the right preparation, but when I’m just ready for a weekend getaway, 6 hours is

On our way to St. Simons for vacation, we decided to have a stop over in Savannah. The only times I had been to Savannah previously were with a fraternity formal and a bachelorette party. Not the most calming and relaxed environments to explore in, nor were our minds set on slow strolls through the
