Georgia Coast – St. Simons Island, Savannah, Bloomingdale

Sunset on St Simons

The Georgia Coast

We left Auburn Alabama and headed to Georgia early to avoid waiting out Tropical Storm Elsa – it made more sense to go stay with our friends.  It was a planned stop, but we had to skip over our Florida stops – which was a good thing as Elsa came into the gulf right where we were planning on staying.  We parked at our friends house in Bloomingdale, and covered the area without the trailer.  But I still want to share what we saw.


St Simons Island

This is a beautiful area on the Georgia coast and where we spent most of our time with our friends at their island house.  We rode out the storm on the island, and it wasn’t too bad – it had been downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it arrived.  Over 7″ of rain however.

Golden Ray

They are still dismantling the cargo ship Golden Ray that contained over 4200 cars when it tipped over in September 2019.  The crane is a photo of it now.  We watched specials on how they are dismantling it on the weather channel – very interesting!   What a huge project.

There are no RV parks on St Simons, but there is a campground on Jekyll Island.  We also drive to Jekyll Island, Sea Island, and others.  We got the grand tour of lots of neat places.  There are also a couple of RV parks in Brunswick, not far from the island.  A couple of great places to eat – V Pizza, and Bennie’s Red Barn (great steaks! and we were told the Sunday brunch is awesome).  Some of our photos…


We took a trolley tour through Savannah and these are some of the photos.  Beautiful town and I highly recommend taking the trolley tour, especially when you drive a big dually truck LOL!

Originally when we were going to stay in a park in this area to be able to drive into Savannah to see the sites.  Then we found out that our friends house was close to Savannah, so we didn’t need to stay in a park.  There are lots of parks near Savannah, and some also outside of Savannah.  We were going to stay at Savannah Oaks RV Resort, and driving by it, it looks like a nice park.
