Great news for those vacationing here on FI - & great ideas for day-trips.  Travel & Leisure Magazine readers named Savannah #3 & Charleston #1 as the test travel destinations in the US. The cities were rated on their history & landmarks, culture, food, friendliness, shopping & value. The good news is that you can be at either one within 2 hours or so & then come back & spend the rest of the week enjoying our wonderful, uncrowded beaches. As for beaches, HHI and Kiawah (both in SC) were named the #1 and #2 island respectively in the continental US.  BUT, neither of those islands enjoy the quiet serenity of our island (with NO red-lights), no outlet malls, & no horrendous traffic!
