The RHBC Chamber of Commerce encourages people to shop the “Hill” for a unique Coastal Christmas as there’s no need to shop out of town this holiday season; start or perhaps finish your holiday shopping at home in the “Hill” where you’ll find great values, great merchants and great times.

Richmond Hill is “home” to many locally-owned, small businesses featuring everything from original art-work, clothing, jewelry and more great gifts that you won’t find anywhere else. Be sure to shop, play and dine local this holiday season….and beyond.

Fort McAllister Historic Park

Located south of Savannah on the banks of the Ogeechee River, this scenic park showcases the best-preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads but did not fall until 1864 -- ending Gen. William T. Sherman’s “March to the Sea.” Visitors can explore the grounds with cannons, a furnace, bombproof, barracks, palisades and more, while a Civil War museum contains artifacts, a video and gift shop.

Nestled among giant live oaks, Spanish moss and salt marsh, this park is a beautiful location for camping, fishing, boating and picnicking. Seven cabins sit on stilts near the marsh, surrounded by palm trees and palmettos. The shaded campground is bordered by tidal Redbird Creek, a boat ramp, fishing dock and nature trail. A large picnic area offers river views and playgrounds, while another boat ramp provides access to the Ogeechee River.
