  • Florida,Georgia and South Carolina

    Hello all,

    So it looks like instead of going to the Midwest I am going to Florida,Georgia and South Carolina to watch baseball in August 6-17th. While I am in Florida I plan on going to see both Florida teams and maybe take in a game at the minor team stadiums.

    I will be staying in the Saratoga or St. Pete's area for 5 days in Florida. I will be in Georgia for 2 1/2 days and in South Carolina for about 4 1/2 days.

    I want to see the Braves and then tour the city. What historical sites should I see while I am there. Anything else I should see?

    In South Carolina I am going to stay in Charleston or closer to my friend who lives in Pawleys Island.

    What else should I see while I am in all three of those states. Suggestions please! Thank you

        In ATL, you need to go to the World of Coke, eat at the Varsity (across from GA Tech), the CNN tour is pretty good, and there are some cool shopping districts and a lot of good places to eat.

            +1 on World of Coke. I'd also recommend going to the Georgia Aquarium (which is across Centennial Park from Coke). I grew up living near & going to Sea World in San Diego often. I thought the GA would be a disappointment, but it was actually quite good.

            Don't forget to sample the sweet tea while you're in Georgia!

                If you're into grand old buildings at all, I'd recommend a tour of the Fox theater in ATL. Or you could go see a show if anything good is on.
                Charleston is FULL of historical sites. We really enjoyed touring the USS Yorktown at Patriot's point. From there, you can also catch a tour boat to Fort Sumter.
                The old Exchange building has dungeons used by the brits during the revolutionary war and is also where SC ratified the constitution.
