Savannah, Georgia boasts the largest National Landmark Historic District in the nation containing a wealth of Georgia history. Students will literally encounter history all along the way as they visit the historic buildings, monuments, and cemeteries of Georgia’s First City. Old Fort Jackson is the oldest standing brick fort in the state. Students will not only visit this historic site, they will be actively engaged in hands-on activities that will help them to learn what garrison life was really like for antebellum and Civil War soldiers. A short distance from Savannah is Tybee Island offering a wealth of information for students on marine life and the ecosystems of Georgia’s coast.

Mighty 8th Air Force Museum

The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force places a high priority on educational programs for school groups and other visitors. The Museum plays an integral role within the educational community; over 20,000 students participate in annual field trips to the Museum. The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is pleased to incorporate the Character Counts! program into all of its museum tours and programs. The Museum was officially recognized in 2003 by the State of Georgia as a Center for Character Education. The Mighty Eighth realized that we have thousands of stories within our museum and archives that demonstrate strong admirable character traits and we needed to be able to share those stories with every person we could and Character Counts! helps us to reach this goal.

UGA Marine Education Center

UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant provide research, education, training and science-based outreach to assist Georgia in solving problems and realizing opportunities for its coastal and marine environments.

Tybee Light House

We are a complete light station whose history dates back to 1736. The tower stands 145 feet tall and has three Light Keeper’s Cottages nearby. A small 1812 Summer Kitchen holds archaeological finds. Across the street is an 1899 Military Battery that houses the Tybee Island Museum. Exhibits cover the time of the Euchee tribe, the history of Fort Screven, Tybee’s Golden Era and more. A yellow raised cottage adjacent to the property showcases 1900s Tybee architecture.
