How To: Road Trip By Campervan

Road Trip By Campervan

Campervan road trips don’t run on gas—they run on unbridled freedom.

It’s heeding the call of the open road and its maze of possibility, where every junction, twist, and turn can lead to new adventures. It’s the feeling of being self-sufficient and gloriously untethered, where an itinerary, route, or destination can literally change on a whim. It’s spending time with your fellow passengers and bonding out on the road—incubating relationships that just need a little air to grow. It’s finding small towns and getting lost and impromptu roadside stops, and cultivating cross-country memories you can carry with you for life.

The “people mover” machines used on the Greenville Segway Tour are fun and easy. The non-motorized machines are based on balance and respond to how your body shifts.

Exploring Savannah on a Culinary and Cultural Walking Tour

When the city of Savannah was first established in 1733, the entire area was free of lawyers, liquor, slaves and Catholics. I pondered this bit of historical trivia while strolling the cobbled streets, sipping on a Chatham Artillery Punch made with seven types of booze. Savannah’s original liquor law, it turns out, only lasted for nine short years. Today, the entire Savannah historical district is completely open-container — meaning anyone with a single, plastic cup can legally carry up to 16 ounces of liquor out on the street.

While the potent punch was originally poured in the confines of Tondee’s Tavern, I find myself swilling the drink en route to Scottish-themed Molly Macpherson’s. The pubs, respectively, are stops two and three on a culinary, cultural walking tour of Savannah’s historic district — which, aside from stopping at seven eateries from bakeries to beehives and bars, also offers tasty morsels of Savannah’s early history.
