Charleston or Savannah?

We’ll be passing through the Charleston/Savannah area at the end of April with our 3 and 5 yr old kids. We’d love to see both cities, but unfortunately only have 1.5 days to spend in one. I’m wondering which city would be a better option given the short stay and that we’ll be traveling with little ones.

Thanks

With that short time, it won't really matter which city you choose, you'll just be breezing in and out.

Whichever fits your driving and budget better.

Savannah may be a bit more manageable given the short amount of time. Go to the visitors center in the historic district for info &maps; do the hop on hop off trolley tour; roam through the squares and areas that interest you. Maybe a harbor cruise/tour and find and or make reservations for dinning.

There is far more to see and do in Charleston & with such short time, you could barely scratch the surface.
