Flights are booked - 7 nights, how to spend it?

We are flying into Jacksonville late May and have 7 nights before our return flight home from Charleston. I cannot decide how to divide up the nights. Right now I have 2 nights booked in Amelia, 2 in Savannah and 3 in Charleston. We also want to stop in Jekyll Island for a few hours. Is this too ambitious? We have a 10 year old with us that would love to see the forts, plantations and of course beaches! I would not mind skipping Amelia but if I do would that be too much time in Savannah and Charleston? Thanks!

7 nights in Charleston and Savannah is perfect. I would skip Amelia Island though it's a great place to visit. A week at Amelia Island would be great. I wish you were flying into Charleston. Anyway drive from Savannah to Charleston on # 17 and visit Beaufort, SC for the day. Skip Jekyll Island and concentrate on Charleston and Savannah for 7 days. Go to Crystal Beer Parlor in Savannah and Savannah City Market for fund shopping and dining. Go to Amen Street Seafood in Charleston for great seafood for lunch. Enjoy your trip. Good luck.

Personally I like the way you have divided your time. In Amelia enjoy the beach- which is to me the best one- then go to Fort Clinch SP and enjoy historic downtown area.

In Savannah you have the riverfront, historic area and Tybee Island.

In Charleston you have the historic district, market square, plantations, Ft. Sumter, etc.

With a 10 year old dividing time and allowing for some activities such as beach time as well as some history will make for a nicer trip.
