How long for a visit in April

We are planning a one week trip from March 31 to April 7 which would include Amelia Island in Florida for 2 days and than time in both Savanah & Charleston.

How long should I plan for each city and what would you do during that time?

I thought 2 days each in Savannah & Charleston.

What do you think?

Honestly, I would go 1 and 3 days, respectively.

Savannah is a fine town, but I feel that one day would be plenty. The only thing you'd really miss would be the great restaurants, and Charleston has many more.

I'm not sure if 3 days is enough for Charleston, especially in April when there's so much to do.

I agree with Floski that you will want more time in Charleston. Both cities are wonderful, but there is more to do and see in Charleston.

I recommend allowing a full day for traveling from Savannah to Charleston. Take the scenic route instead of going straight up I-95. Stop for lunch, antiquing, or touring in the beautiful and historic small town of Beaufort, SC.
