More Base Details and Info
Believe it or not, Fort Stewart is considered the largest Army post east of the Mississippi River when you’re strictly comparing land mass! It’s conveniently located in southern coastal Georgia so you’re a day trip away from the beach (Hilton Head, anyone?). Hiking, outdoor adventures, and all the Southern hospitality you can dream of is at your fingertips. Life moves slower down here, and the heat and humidity are downright oppressive, but that makes for a great excuse to head east to the ocean! Use this stop on your military journey to get out there and explore this area rich in history and Southern charm.
