Richmond Hill Recommendations
Henry Ford's Southern Town story is told through the arts and cultural heritage product. Design landscape to elevate downtown (historic district) visibility will use white Ford Fences and uniform landscaping to make it easy to find. Preserve cultural heritage through signage and storytelling. Pursue agritourism experiences that support coastal heritage. Explore options for unique lodging in the heritage sites. Champion options for outdoor recreation adventure including a pitstop or overnight from touring the adjacent East Coast Greenway.
Sample itinerary: stay at Ft. McAllister cottages on the marsh, bike to the marina for a sunset cocktail at Fish Tales the night you arrive, in the morning stroll Red Creek trail and then meander into town to tour the Ford era history museum. Grab a coffee at the Ways Station before you bike or run the 3-mile rice paddy loop at JF Gregory Park and stick around for the seafood festival where you can eat local: shrimp, oysters, clams and more. Sunday morning wake up in the park and launch a kayak to paddle the Ogeechee River and explore marsh areas or consider a boat trip to Ossabaw Island. The Visitor Center located in the beautifully restored Ford bakery will guide you with these experiences and more.
