This is a must see for Savannah History. While it is about 15 minutes from downtown, Pin Point is well worth the drive. Also, it is the home of SCJ Clarence Thomas who's family still live in the area.

The museum tells its story in a living and graceful way, and the story is a broad one. Slavery, plantation live, Gullah/Geeche Culturr, Low Country community life and much more are woven together here. If you choose to engage your imagination and if you have...More

We arrived in the coastal south with little knowledge of the Gullah culture and Pin Point was only a 2 miles from campground. It was extremely informative about the history, culture, hardships, and joys of the descendants of West African slaves. Our tour guide and...More

Four days in Savannah with a car (4 Replies)
What options are there to see within a 1/2-3/4 hour or so drive of Savannah Historical district with a car. We will have four full days in Savannah. We also have lodging with free parking so in/out is not an issue. I have already found Richmond Hill which is interesting to us being from Detroit. We will also be leaving Savannah and driving down to St Augustine on the fifth day. Pin Point Heritage Museum looks like it might be interesting, is it worth the trip out there? What is there...More

The whole point of Tybee is the beach, but of course there's also the Marine Science Center and the lighthouse. Fort Pulaski is just west of the island and worth a visit. As for Richmond Hill: It's a nice residential community and somewhat boring, but if you head south on Ford Avenue out of town, fork left on Fort McAllister Road, and continue to the end, you'll find yourself at the historic fort and Fish Tales, a good marina/restaurant. Closer in: Wormsloe, Bonaventure Cemetery,...More
