This year we're headed to Tybee Island, GA, which is just outside Savannah.

If you haven't heard of Tybee, then you must not follow the blog The Lettered Cottage. Layla and Kevin travel there occasionally to makeover one of the old beach cottages. Tybee is a former military town, with lots of small cottages for the regular folks, as well as large homes where the officers used to live. I refuse to stay at a condo or a hotel when I visit a beach town, and I shudder at the thought of staying in a new place when vintage homes abound. Lucky for me, we found an old home just one lot from the beach. It's been updated with new decor and electronics, but still has vintage charm. I look forward to renting bikes and touring around the small island to check out all the other homes too!
Savannah is just a 20-30 minute trip away, so we'll be making a couple day trips over there.
TripAdvisor.com is my good friend when vacation planning, but I'd love to hear from you too. What are your favorite experiences in Savannah or Tybee? Or what activities or restaurants should we steer clear of?
