May 25th, 2019 by Corey Edwards

Savannah Trolley ToursThere are lots of great ways to get out and Georgia’s oldest city – but one of the most popular has to be Savannah trolley tours!

There are a number of ways to see the sights in Savannah. You can drive, bike, or even walk around on self-guided tours of the city. You can also take advantage of any of the number of guided tour services offered, as well. There are Segway tours, river cruises, bike tours, and more.

Savannah trolley tours are popular with many because, unlike a Segway, boarding a trolley can often feel like stepping into the past.

Visit the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum

May 17th, 2019 by Corey Edwards

Mighty Eighth Air Force MuseumDiscover the history of America’s “greatest air armada of all time,” United States Eighth Air Force, at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force.

The United States Eighth Air Force Division was activated in Savannah on January 2nd, 1942, 53 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor. One of its first missions was to stop the German war machine, gain control of Europe’s skies, and pave the way for an Allied land invasion.

The Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress” was the division’s main tool for this task. The runs were done during daylight hours and against heavy anti-aircraft fire and the deadly fighters of the German Luftwaffe. As you can imagine, the odds were terrible. The 8th suffered an estimated 26,000 combat fatalities in WWII – yet still they flew.

This is just the first chapter in the ongoing saga of the Untied States’ Eighth Air Force. Imagine what more you’ll discover with a visit to the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum. (more…)
