I'm planning a trip to Savannah with friends and since we'd already be in the south, we were also thinking about extending our trip and going to Charleston. What would be the best way to get from Savannah, Georgia to Charleston, S.C.? We’re debating between flying, driving (if there are places worth seeing along the way), or, if there’s a boat, maybe taking a boat. If anyone has any info on traveling that route, we'd appreciate it. Thanks!
On getting between the two, I would definitely drive. Its only 2-3 hours, and if you want to see some stuff along the way, the Old Sheldon Church Ruins is a very worthwhile stop, and Beaufort is a neat old town that are easy detours off the main route.
Mentioned in this answer:
Don't know much about boat rides, but I'd imagine it would take quite some time for a trip. Highway 17 is the shortest drive, but there are very few large attractions along the way that I know of.
Drive, Take Highway 17. Nice road. Scenic.
