We're leaving for Tybee on 4 May, staying at the Savannah Beach and Racket Club via reservation with Sandy's by the Shore booking agency as we have for the last 10 years. These are 1 bedroom rental condos with 2 bunk beds and should run you 600 or so for those days. We pay the extra for an end unit with its magnificent view of the estuary and the passing ships, but cheaper units are available along the building. Lighthouse Point is another option on the Atlantic Beach.
They kid about Tybee being lost in the 50's but that's really its beauty - Tybee Time. When you cross the Lazaretto Creek bridge, time seems to change and the world goes away - just you, and the sand and the surf!! Plop a chair down on the beach and let the sound of the surf lull you into a restful doze.
Unfortunately, most of the motels are from that era and as the reviews indicate are not outstanding although a couple B&Bs are super.
Things to do: At SB&RC, ur 50 yards from the beach, qtr mile from the ocean, fish or swim either. Fort Pulaski for a 10 year old boy - Nirvana. Got 2 eat one breakfast at the Breakfast Club - he was one of the chef's for John Kennedy Jr's. wedding reception many years ago. Have Capt Stan Allen take you out fishing or birdwatching, rent a kayak, do a dolphin watch but watch out for irate country-western singers, and get some fresh shrimp down at the shrimp boats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Biking, beach walking, strolling town, fish off the pier - million things to do here. ALL FREE!!!!!! Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS- email me if you need anything specific.
