When you think of taking a holiday in the southern United States, most people would consider a nice beach jaunt in Florida, or somewhere along the Gulf of Mexico.There’s a lot of coastline in the south, but there’s also a lot of gorgeous land, glorious big cities and quaint country towns that are often overlooked.River Street makes for a great place to stroll, catch views of incoming ships and enjoy a number of cafes and restaurants.The 22 squares are also more green places to chill out and catch some fresh air, but if you can’t handle walking anymore then perhaps a ride on a carriage or trolley is in order.Sea levels were more than 200 feet lower than present levels, and the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico shorelines were 100 or more miles seaward of their present locations.
