6 day trip November. Where to stay

We are considering a trip of around 6 days to the savannah area. We are in New Orleans first with my husbands work. One idea is to fly to savannah possibly through atlanta. We would like to stay in a nice characterful place. Can't decide whether to spend all the time in savannah with some day trips or whether to have a few days somewhere like the golden isles and fly back from there to atlanta and the uk. Any ideas. Thank you

I'd combine Savannah and Charleston with that much time.

Thank you. We had thought of that as an option. Sounds like they are both interesting cities

Use savannah as a base to go to Charlston for the day or other areas South of Savannah,

Both cities are great as it all depends on what you like to do. I'd at least spend one or 2 nights in Charleston and the rest in Savannah. If you go to the Charleston forum, they're going to tell you to spend more time in Charleston so you need to do your homework as what you're wanting to do and the areas you want to visit.

As far as places to stay, I'd look at Marshall House, Planters Inn, 1790 Inn or maybe a condo if you plan to spend 7 nights.

Thank you both for your helpful advice and suggestions. There is so much to see but we don't want to rush around too much. Just getting the right balance. Will look at those hotel suggestions too.

Depending on what you like to do, one option is to stay in Savannah and do a day trip (14 miles one way) out to Tybee Island and soak up some coastal views. Its a very relaxed, low key island. Not swimming weather in November but its still a fun place to relax

Thank you. Sounds good. Where we live in the uk we aren't near the sea so it's always nice to have a trip to it

We are going to split it 3 nights each in savannah and charleston driving between the two with a stop in Beaufort . Flights booked. In to savannah and out of charleston. Still looking at accommodation so many great choices from this and the charleston forum
