20 Adrenaline-Packed Ways to Play in the South – Part 4
The adventure doesn't have to end. We're bringing you part four of our top adrenaline-packed ways to play in the South. Are you ready?
1. CreekFire for RVing
Maybe you like your action with a side of relaxation and solitude. If so, CreekFire Motor Ranch in Savannah might be just the place. Bring your own RV or rent one on-site, or opt for a primitive campground if you’re into truly roughing it.
They offer fishing and boat rentals, as well as canoe and kayak rentals, or you can hike their nature trails. And when the excitement winds down for the day, you can enjoy first-class amenities like a large resort-style pool and hot tub, courts for tennis, basketball and bocce ball, and a playground for the kids, with more amenities coming soon. creekfirerv.com.
2. Face your fears
You can’t swing a dead cat in Savannah without hitting a ghost – or a ghost tour guide or participant. Savannah has earned a reputation as one of the most haunted cities in America, and it has the stories to prove it.
Dozens of companies offer ghost tours that will give you chill bumps, ranging from hearse tours to walking tours, from pub crawls to cemetery strolls. Every tour and guide seems to have a different story to tell, so if the supernatural is your thing, you’ll keep going back for more.
Here's a list of some popular Ghost tours in Savannah: Hearse Ghost Tours Full Moon Tours | Haunted Savannah Pub Crawls Old Town Trolley – Ghosts & Gravestones Tours Bonaventure Cemetery Journeys with Shannon Scott Savannah By Foot | Creepy Crawl Haunted Pub Tour Ghost Walker Tours and Ghost Hunt Experience Ghost City Tours
3. sing like everybody's watching
Performing for a crowd is always a rush, and singing karaoke is one of the best ways to get your kicks. Savannah knows how to have a good time after dark better than just about anywhere else, so there are plenty of places to get your karaoke on, but none are better than McDonough’s Restaurant and Lounge. It’s consistently rated the best spot in town for karaoke, but get there early because it’s so popular that aspiring singers often get turned away when the list is too long – like Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz did back in 2009.
4. Big Ring Life
Most people’s first thought of cycling involves the image of Lance Armstrong and the likes climbing steep hills in the Tour de France, but the Savannah College of Art and Design Cycling Team proves that you don’t need mountains to develop first-class cyclists.
Coach Ben Van Winkle’s team features world-class talent like Olivia Ray who won the match and mass sprint and placed 2nd at the Omnium Collegiate Track Nationals; Abby Youngworth, who recently placed 11th at the Collegiate Cyclocross Nationals in Reno, Nevada, and 18th in the U23 Pro/Elite Championships; and Clayton Stone, who placed 2nd in the Criterium and 3rd in the time trial at last spring’s USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals. savannah.scadathletics.com
