Engage with wildlife and the best of nature at the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge, located in Macintosh, about 48 kilometers southwest of Georgia. People will be able to learn about the history of Harry Neck, as well as go hiking and biking; there are more than 15 miles. The shelter covers an area of 2,762 acres and was established on an abandoned military airfield that was transferred in 1962 by the Federal Aviation Administration. During the winter, you can enjoy the abundance of ducks that walk through the pools and swamps and, during the summer, observe the egrets and also the herons; and during the experience, an impressive 51-acre botanical garden.
The garden was planted in 1880, when owner H, B Miller planted Japanese wood plants, and in 1915, a bamboo forest was planted. The site was purchased in 1919 by Barbour Lathrop and leased to the United States Department of Agriculture. The gardens are believed to have the largest bamboo collection in the United States, which is open to the public. Skidaway Island State Park is a real gem, whether you choose to camp or simply visit during the day.

Conveniently located on the east side of Savannah, near Victory Drive, Daffin Park is an 80-acre recreational park designed in 1907 by landscape architect John Nolen. The museum and memorial park are just steps away from the Georgia State Railroad Museum (Roundhouse), the largest 19th-century railroad repair center in the country, and the adjoining Savannah Children's Museum, an interactive outdoor museum for children. The Savannah-Ogeechee Barge Canal is a historic canal that begins with a tidal lock on the Savannah River and continues for more than 16 miles through four lift locks and eventually reaches another tidal lock on the Ogeechee River.
Among Savannah's most picturesque places, this peaceful 588-acre park borders Skidaway Narrows, which is part of the Georgia Intracoastal Waterway. Daffin Park is adjacent to Grayson Stadium, home of the Savannah Sand Gnats, a minor league baseball team. Located on the Savannah River, the historic fort protected the city during the War of 1812 and served as headquarters for the Savannah River defenses during the Civil War. From the mid-1730s, Noble Jones cared for and developed the park and inspired those who followed to create the park, to what it is now.
One of Savannah's most popular sights is Chippewa Square; once there, don't forget to visit the bronze statue of General James Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia. The Tricentennial Park is a group of historic sites in West Savannah managed by the Coastal Heritage Society. Tricentennial Park, a series of historic sites in downtown Savannah, is a great place to walk around the land and learn about the city's early history. The park, which is located on Bull Street, was named after The Battle of Chippewa, which took place in 1812; and the park was then established in 1815.The park's magnificent two-level white cast-iron fountain, made famous in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, is a visual masterpiece and probably the most photographed attraction in all of Savannah.
The park isn't that big and it's not far from Savannah's business district, it's the perfect place to have a good time.
