From Claxton, the well-known city of Charleston is 120 miles (193 kilometers) to the east.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a narrow window into the broader cultural and natural fabric of a region. So allow time to tour Southeast Georgia's other sights and attractions. You may also wish to check out Metter, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast, and Statesboro 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south.
About 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the east of Claxton is Savannah, an important regional city home to Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens and Savannah Festival Outlet Center. Telfair Museum of Art, Calhoun Square and Wright Square are a number of other places worth checking out for those who have more time on their hands.
Take some time out from seeing the sights and cool off with a spot of boating or fishing.
The most convenient major airport, Savannah - Hilton Head International Airport, is situated in Savannah, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the east of Claxton, a handy point to remember when booking your vacation.
