There are places to eat besides River Street, MJ.
The low country style shrimp and grits (often available at Goosefeathers on the weekend) is actually closer to healthy than the heavy cream style that seems to be more popular here in NC. Definitely crazy amount of stuff to take pictures of; if you get tired of the history, there's nature and diverse people. My oldest is at SCAD so I get down there a bit. Will almost be sorry to see him graduate. Almost.

Love Goosefeathers!
And Tybee Island and all things low country!

Mathjac. Be sure to go out to the old cemetery. Not the one in town. I don't remember it's name -- but it is is fascinating and photo worthy.

I don't remember either, but the one that is a park on the next river (not Savannah River, but the next one south) is likely what you mean.

I also have a nephew down there working his butt off also. Tending bar at Elan and 17Hundred90 plus serving at the Distillery (not a bad spot for lunch; across the street from the visitor center). The visitor center is worth walking through even if you get down there a lot.

Bonaventure, and yes it's very photogenic. Have to go early or late so you the sun will be coming sideways, to get the best shots of the tombstones.
If you read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, this cemetery is the one they met the voodoo woman who arrived there by boat.

Speaking of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", I knew Dr. Larry Howard personally. He is one of the real-life, non-fictional characters in that book. He was a medical examiner and performed autopsies for the Georgia state crime lab. He gets pilloried in that book. Years ago I lost touch with him and I don't know if he is dead or alive, but given his age I would say the odds are that he is no longer with us.
