In the Moon River District episode of "The Excursion," host David Zelski looks back at the last episode on Tybee and Historic Savannah, and then learns about Savannah's Moon River District. He navigates the waters of Skidaway Narrows in a kayak, learns about the Gullah Geechee culture at Pin Point Heritage Museum, and attempts to win a paddleboard race. The potential reward? Dinner and a night's stay at Cohen's Retreat in Savannah.
