David Zelski gets some much needed therapy from Spy the Ox at the Melon Bluff Nature Preserve and Palmyra Plantation. Explore Fort Pulaski on Cockspur Island and Fort McAllister in Richmond Hill, two forts that both had roles in protecting Georgia's coast during wartime.

Located in Savannah's City Market, not far from First African Baptist Church, is Belford's Restaurant. Belford's serves breakfast (Monday-Saturday), lunch, dinner and a Sunday brunch. As Phil and Gerald discovered, the Shrimp, Greens and Grits are delicious. Intrigued with this innovative take on a traditional dish, the Traveler team returned for dinner and were delighted with the fabulous cuisine. Just thinking about the Filet Mignon With Béarnaise Sauce is enough to make our mouths water! You can check out their menu online.

Visit the Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites website to find out more about Fort McAllister Historic Park in Richmond Hill. A really unique feature about McAllister is that it is not only an Historic Site, it's a State Park too. That means there are cottages and tent, RV, or trailer campsites that you can reserve if you're planning a trip. They have a fishing pier and boat ramps. For those who prefer to rough it, they have Pioneer campsites too.
Palmyra Plantation. David and Phil certainly enjoyed their stay at the Palmyra Plantation Barn, and there are many options for the nature lover in you.
