Trip report - wish we could stay longer.

Just back in New Zealand and I have to say I am really missing my little beach cottage (Little Fish, Mermaid Cottages) and so wish I was back sipping a large glass of iced tea on my covered porch! We loved our time on Tybee (husband, myself and 3 children aged 15, 12 and 8). The water was warm, the beach beautiful, all in all it was just perfect. Really enjoyed Fort Pulaski (unfortunately when we went to climb up the lighthouse there was a lightening storm and it was closed) and our visit to the Crab Shack. Had a day in Savannah (beautiful city). If we weren't so far away, we'd be back in a heartbeat.

We didn't find it so much a "redneck riviera" like people have scoffed about but more just a great, laid back, casual beach retreat which is how our family likes to spend our relaxing time. I'm sure most people who like a holiday like that would enjoy it - and Savannah is a beautiful place to visit, only about 20-25 minutes away. Our cottage was the most adorable thing ever.

Redneck Riviera is the US northern coast in the Gulf of Mexico. Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. But here you will find the whitest sand and the clearest water in the continental US.
