Getting There: Depending on your departure city, most airlines including American, Delta, Continental, United, Northwest and Southwest service the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The 1-800 phone numbers and Web links for these airlines are available at this magazine’s Airlines page. Alternatively, airline service is available at Savannah, Charleston, and Norfolk, VA.

Driving Tour: Savannah is about a six hour drive from Raleigh and all other destinations are within a day's drive from each other. The 1-800 phone numbers and Web links for the major auto rental companies are available at this magazine's Autos page. It is strongly recommended to book in advance to receive the best pricing.

Staying There: The historic city centers of Savannah, Charleston, and Williamsburg are the ideal places to spend your holiday. By staying "downtown" you are within minutes of these city's historic mansions, restaurants and nightlife. We used to good advantage the lodging information and ratings provided provided by the excellent guidebooks Frommer's the Carolinas & Georgia and Frommer's Virginia. Both publications also furnish excellent dining and activities recommendations and thorough information on the major attractions in each area.
