Black Heritage & Family Reunions

Families from all over the South and the country come to the Savannah area year after year for family reunions, educational trips and vacations. The reason is easy to recognize: the Low Country is a rich tapestry primarily woven by African Americans. The Low Country’s story is, in a sense, the oldest thread of the African American experience. From the famous black cultural sites of Savannah, to the Gullah-speaking islands just off the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina, Oceanfront Cottage Rentals on Tybee Island, GA, puts you right at the doorstep of history.
