There is a lot to do in the coastal Georgia area. Here are a few favorites from "veteran Marne spouses". We, in no way, benefit from our endorsement of these activities.
Savannah is about a 45 minutes drive northeast of post
Savannah has a rich history that comes to life with trolley tours and ghost tours
Forsyth Park has the iconic fountain, two playgrounds, and a splash pad during the summer months
Vinnie Van Go-Gos: City Market, pizza, cash only
Leopold's: Broughton Street, ice cream
The Olde Pink House: Abercorn Street, fancy dining
Fiddler's Crab House: River Street, seafood, casual dining
Pooler is about 45 minutes north of post, directly off of I-95
The Tanger Outlets and the airport will draw your eyes to Pooler, but there is a whole lot more to this area!
Right off I-95 between Richmond Hill and Pooler is the Mighty Eighth Airforce Museum
There are plenty of activities right in our own back yard!
Hinesville has an airt center with art classes.
Rosenhof German Restuarant: Downtown Area
We have several islands close to Fort Stewart that have a lot to offer in terms of culture, activities, and learning
Jekyll Island is about an hour and fifteen minutes south of post. it has dog-friendly beaches, a water park, and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. It costs $6 to get on the island, but there is free parking in most places
Tybee Island is about an hour and fifteen minutes northeast of post, east of Savannah. Fort Pulaski and Tybee Island Lighthouse provide some history to the island.
It also offers beaches, restaurants, sea kayaking and dolphin tours.
Driving on the island is free, but parking costs money. make sure you bring quarters in case you find a spot on the street!
