A Beautiful place for bird watching. During the spring, hundreds of Wood Storks and Egrets are nesting at Harris Neck. The sights and sonds of the nesting are incredible. You can't get up close to the birds (to do that try the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Rookery) but that's OK, it's great to see them in a really natural setting. You'll also see lot's of alligators and turtles, and other wildlife.
Along the wildlife drive there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy wildlife and nature trails. The refuge is a reclaimed World War II Airforce training base, so many of the paths are old runways, great for smooth walking or biking.
Harris Neck is just a short drive (about 45 minutes) south of Savannah. It's just a couple of miles off Interstate 95. It's a great way to enjoy the afternoon.
Oh Yeah, Don't forget the bug spray. The sand gnats and and skeeters are hungry.
And if you go to visit, make sure you stop at the "smallest church in America". It sits on the corner of highway 17 and Harris Neck Road.
