more sun and enjoy a few more adventures before calendars become full of school activities,
sports, and homework assignments.

Consider embarking on a trip to one of these nearby locations for an unforgettable last-minute
- St. Simon’s Island, GA: This quaint island in south Georgia is less than an hour and a half
south of Savannah; you’ll drive right by the Savannah College of Art and Design on your
way there. The Bloody Marsh Battle site is located here, and it’s an important part of
Georgia history. Here the British fought Spanish invaders in 1742, eliminating the threat
of Spanish conquest. For those in your group less interested in history, the St. Simon’s
Lighthouse is a must-see. Further, St. Simon’s beaches have minimal development, so
you can enjoy natural beaches and enjoy seeing wildlife like dolphins and even sea
- Beaufort, SC: Beaufort had the honor of being named the “South’s Best Small Town” by
Southern Living Magazine in 2017. It’s just an hour and a half east of Georgia Southern
University, located in Statesboro. Beaufort is made even more unique by the Spanish
moss shading its quiet streets and surrounding impressive Civil War-era homes. Enjoy
waterfront views walking or biking along the Spanish Moss Trail, a ten-mile paved trail
that takes you through low country marshes and unique neighborhoods of Beaufort
- Amelia Island, FL: Amelia Island is just two hours from Hinesville and Armstrong Atlantic
State University, and offers some of the best beaches in the southeast. Kayak through
the nearby marshes to appreciate local wildlife, or visit the Fort Clinch Civil War fort.
Amelia Island is also a great place to charter a sea fishing boat and either try your hand
at fishing for ocean creatures, or just enjoy time on the water.
If you’re coming from Hinesville or Statesboro, there are also plenty of fun things to do in
Savannah, such as eat, shop, and stroll in the charming Historic District, tour the SCAD Museum
of Art, or admire the impressive live oaks and Spanish Moss at the Wormsloe Historic Site.
Make the most of these final days of summer and plan a last-minute vacation to experience the
history, natural beauty, and unique environments of St. Simon’s Island, Beaufort, or Amelia
Island. Savannah Car Rental can provide a cheap car rental to make your vacation safe, fun, and
