Interesting things to see in Savannah, GA, anyone?

Going there this weekend, wondering if anyone knows of any interesting places to see?

I'd like to head up to the American Papermaking Museum in Atlanta, but I won't be able to. bah.

I've always enjoyed walking down the Riverfront with a plastic cup of beer. Mostly because it's fun to drink in public with impunity. The Riverfront also used to have great breakdancing. It's been a while since I've been there though.

Valdosta, Georgia has the best all-you-can-eat fried catfish and hushpuppy dinner known to man. Unfortunately it's about 3 hours from Savannah.

Thanks Brian, might check it out.

Nathan, supposedly we are going to the Riverfront, though I don't drink alcohol so that part won't be for me, heh. No Valdosta either, just Savannah this time.

You know, the Riverfront can be pretty fun. There's a lot of crappy tourist-style souvenir stands, but there are also some pretty good reaturants & shops & such. Plus, having reloacted to the landlocked Midwest, the stink of ocean air makes me swoon.

When I was wee, my parents used to drag me around to all the quasi-historical re-enactment stuff. Savannah has some of that, too - perhaps there's an old-timey letterpress shop somewhere.

I'd love to go see a letter press shop.

I know we're probably going on a ghost tour or two.

And most likely we will be eating at the riverfront at least once.

Just over 24 hours and counting until we leave.

Enjoy the South, Chris. No matter what you end up doing in Savannah, you'll have fun. It's actually one of my favorite cities down that way.

Here's hoping I enjoy it.

Bout 14 hours or so until we leave now.
