I'm looking for opinions/advice for our family vacation. We're looking at Tybee Island as well as St.Simons, Jekyll, Amelia, as well as few SC beaches for our family vacation. Our kids are 6,6, and 4, so we mostly just stay on the beach. I don't want a crazy Myrtle Beach or Daytona scene, but we would enjoy a night out at a small amusement park or something of that nature. I love to fish from shore sometimes even kayak in the mornings before everyone gets up (6-10), so conveinance (5 min walk or drive) to that would be great. We like to pier fish too.
Above all, we want a place on the beach where the kids can boogie board and build sand castles without being exposed to drunken teenagers.
We've been on alot of the NC and SC beaches, but none of these. We're looking at going further south this year since we have to take our vacation earlier this year and we hate cold water.
Tybee was the first choice because of (1) it's the first one we come to heading south and my wife's pregnant. (2) We would like to see Savannah. Do they have things that small kids would enjoy? (3) It has a pier and some shallow water fishing that I love. (4) There seems to be alot of condos in our price range (under $1,800 per week) (5)It seems small although we've heard that the weekends can get crazy. The last is a bummer since the Memorial Day weekend would be ideal.
We are open to other places also. All feed back is very much appreciated.
