It’s been awhile since I’ve been out there, but I know there were several good ones on hilton head island, SC- about 45 minutes north of Savannah. Very pretty area. There’s a flamingo LB in Savannah that’s super cute :)

Two of the prettiest letterbox carves in Savannah:
Smoke on the Wat-arrr
King of The Dead

There are many others that are still active - Big 7, Flamingo on bull st, Be my Teddy Bear, Oldest Bar in GA, Top Award and Despair are all active drive bys in the downtown area.

There are many others in nearby Pooler. Unfortunately, I could not find any in Tybee Island.

Safe travels and enjoy Savannah!

Thank you for recommending my box, Smoke on the Wat-arrr, but unfortunately it seems to be missing. :( It is retired. I still have hopes that maybe someone will return it. It was one of my favorite carves.

Oh no!! SAD! I'm so sorry it is missing - boxes do not last long in the wild in Savannah. That particular set of bushes is popular as a 'hangout place' for those who like to smoke and for guys who 'ride the rails'. No joke - a guy came up to me in those bushes and asked if I had a joint, and then told us about his life hopping onto trains for a few years. I bet he saw some amazing sights!!

I'm not going to be able to come out there today. I'm 6 weeks out from a total shoulder reconstruction. A wet muddy mountain is not where I need to be right now if I slip... my shoulder or my doctor will not be happy.
You guys be careful. Wet granite's damn slick... And totally unforgiving.

You do not want to be anywhere near those boxes with the mountain wet from rain. You will not have a good hike.

Visiting Savannah

Hello Georgia folk!

I will be visiting Savannah this Fall for a getaway with my hubby and am looking for recommendations--where to stay, what to see, where to eat, and of course, letterboxes that lend themselves to the tolerance of a noxer.

We'd like a moderately priced Bnb (although the breakfast is not a requirement). Prefer to be in the city, and are happy to Uber or public tranport. Dates are still fluid right now.

Thank you all in advance!

There is so much to do in Savannah! Being a tourist is fun - hop on/off the trolley and go sight-seeing, or taking a spooky ghost trolley tour. There are many museums, and the girl scout birthplace. Paula Deen's restaurant is a favorite for southern buffet, but there are tons of great restaurants - especially if you want to enjoy seafood. I like walking down River St. and poking into local shops in City Market. Depending upon how long you're here - Tybee Island is a fantastic beach - North Beach has the lighthouse and is less crowded, South Tybee is the tourist mecca and popular. There are Tybee Island dolphin tours for about $15 that are outstanding!!

Boxing wise: there are several drive bys in the historic downtown Savannah area, as well as a beautiful letterbox in the Bonadventure cemetery (between Savannah and Tybee). There are several boxes on some trails in nearby Pooler as well.

Let me know when you set your dates - I'd love to meet up and exchange and would be glad to take you around to local boxes if I'm available.

Sincerely,
Super Hedge Hoggie (Sarah)

We were there last weekend and did get 12 boxes.

We did end up at the wrong Botanical Gardens and wondered why all the clues did not work!

The box that was supposed to be on a car wasn't because it had been pulled. Oh, the car wasn't was where it was supposed to be either. We stumbled upon it!

The Bonaventure Historical Society has developed a $5 tour app that would be great for both you and your noxer!
You can't go wrong anywhere in Savannah. You'll have an amazing time!
