Vacation Station – Savannah

“Elizabeth Flanders opted to spend her most recent birthday in Savannah. The one-hour trip from nearby Statesboro was a parents’ getaway, a low-key day of fun and relaxation in one of America’s most enchanting cities. Mother Nature cooperated with her plans.”

“The weather was great for Feb. 26,” Elizabeth commented. “It was like a spring day.”
Elizabeth and her husband, Jeffrey, visit Savannah often. On this special day, they strolled along the River Walk and sat by the water, soaking up the enticing atmosphere of the Savannah River and watching the boats drift past. Tubby’s Tank House was the venue for her birthday celebration, and Tubby sent over a dessert on the house.

“Savannah is a romantic place for couples,” the birthday girl pointed out. “There are hotels right on River Street, and you can walk the beautiful cobblestone streets. There are shops galore, or you can just sit at the river’s edge and watch the boats go by.”

On this trip, encouraged by an offer of free airline tickets and a two-night hotel stay, the Flanders’ took the time to attend a presentation by Vacation Station. As a birthday present for Elizabeth, they joined the vacation club.

“We want to go to the western Caribbean and Mexico and maybe Hawaii, if we live long enough,” she commented.

Though this trip was for Elizabeth and Jeffrey, their children, 13-year-old Rebecca and 11-year-old Dalton, often join them. When they stay overnight, the River Street Inn is their favorite hotel.

“We recommend going to the riverfront,” Elizabeth suggested. “There is always something going on. There is a large variety of places to eat, like Wet Willie’s and The Warehouse Bar & Grill. My family loves any restaurant that serves seafood, especially the Shrimp Factory. Our son likes to watch the boats, and Rebecca loves to look through the shops, and, of course, they both adore the sweet shops. I prefer Savannah Sweets, particularly their caramel apples with nuts.”

Elizabeth pointed out that she and Jeffrey chose to join Vacation Station for the convenience of having a person to talk with about their vacation needs. She added that membership includes many other privileges.

“We love to cruise, and Vacation Station offers many good deals,” she said. “We can offer our friends and family discounted trips and get paid to travel. We look forward to using our membership during our retirement years, which are still some 15 years away. In the meantime, we plan to take a few weekend trips and a couple of cruises.”
