I-16 Macon, GA to Savannah, GA

Has anyone been down this stretch of Interstate lately? Conditions? Been seeing so many posts about rough roads all over the country it has me concerned.
TIA
John

The pavement from Macon to Savannah is fairly good. There is a county or two where a truck chassis feels the concrete pavement joints and goes thump, thump thump. Not as noticeable in a car. I donít remember hardly any potholes.
Need any info about Savannah? We live just outside.

Thanks for the info. We will be at Skidaway for 2 weeks doing the tourist things. Any recommendations from a local beyond the forts, Tybee Island, Wormsloe, etc?

Tybee is a definite must. You have to pay for parking almost everywhere. If you are up to it, walk to the top of the lighthouse (free parking right next to the lighthouse). The dolphin cruises are great. Eating places: the Crab Shack, Huckapoos, NorthBeach Grill, AJs. and other good seafood places.
Savannah is a walking city, but a trolley tour is very educational.
River Street is definitely a tourist area. Plant Riverside on the west end is great. City Market has good shopping too.
Lots of good eating places. We like the Crystal Beer Parlor.
Itís a ways to get to Skidaway Island. My recommendation:
Exit I-16 onto I-95 southbound. Take the next exit, GA 204 and turn left, basically Abercorn Extension. After you pass Largo, stay in the right lanes and after you pass Carey Hilliards restaurant, get on the Truman Parkway. Exit at Whitefield and turn right which leads into the Diamond Causeway and straight to Skidaway Island.
I think you take State Park Road to the campground.
By the way, you can also get on the Truman Parkway north to the end which is just east of downtown. Take President St. right and itís a short ride to downtown. The Visitors Center is at Liberty St and MLK, where the trolleys are and an information center.
Have a good visit. If you have any RV problems, give me a call. 912-507-4848. We live just off Exit 152 on I-16
