Situated near the town of Savannah, Skidaway Island Park trails through maritime forest and a salt marsh and then leads to an observation tower. Considered one of the most exciting parks in the state of Georgia, the entrance alone is something you would consider gorgeous. Standing there feels like being on the portal to another dimension.

The great thing is that pooches of all sizes are welcome at the park and pet parents can bring them on the trials too, as long as they are on a leash.
