Riverdance in Savannah, Georgia and Louisville, Kentucky

After our 4 great weeks in Florida it was time to start our whirlwind tour of the rest of North America, starting in the ever charming Savannah, Georgia. Savannah’s old southern architecture certainly hasn’t “gone with the wind”; beautifully restored mansions, a picturesque waterfront, pristine beaches, massive churches and quaint little shops coupled with the great southern charm and gracious hospitality made our stay in Savannah very pleasant.
