We made the 45 minute drive to Hilton Head , once there we drove to the Westin for our day at the beach.
I had only been to the ocean one other time (back when I was 18), but it was on a rocky beach off the New Jersey shore. I was hoping for white sandy beaches and that is exactly what I found!!
We spent several hours in blue chairs like these - smelling the sea salt in the air and listening to the waves hitting the shore - it was HEAVEN.
I have always considered myself a mountain girl, but I think I may have changed my mind on this trip. We will now just have to take two trips a year - one to the beach and one to the mountains.
After our perfect day at the beach we drove back to our hotel in Savannah. We showered and headed out for our last night in the historical district. We ate dinner at Riverhouse Seafood - we had to have the Lobster bisque one more time. Then after dinner we walked around and soaked up the charming city of Savannah.
