Team Two For The Road, beauty judges for the Rand McNally and USA Today’s Most Beautiful Small Town/Best of the Road, was welcomed onto Tybee Island last week. Front and center were Mermaid Denise and Mermaid Jan, two of our favorite island girls! In fact, that’s Jan and Denise front and center in this photo and Jan’s photo was featured in the print version of Savannah Morning News!
Dusty and Nikki Green of Two For The Road spent a couple of days enjoying our island life and they’ll present their findings to the judging committee. The winner of the Most Beautiful Small Town will be announced July 15 and will also be featured on The Travel Channel on July 25. Tybee Island is used to being recognized as a great place to visit and this latest nomination has made everyone very proud.
It’s not unusual to see Mermaids (and Mermen) around Tybee Island. Sometimes, they’re on foot or on bikes and everyone knows our Mermaid Mobile, the sea-foam green Volvo wagon that criss-crosses the island each day. Jan and Denise are most often working behind the scenes, decorating and arranging, making reservations for cottages or dining and recreation requests and they’re experts at special orders for celebrations and island events. We think it’s fitting they should be front and center to show off our little hamlet.
Any time you’re ready for a truly special getaway, be sure to wish upon a mermaid. Just ask for Denise or Jan and, Swish! Swish! Poof! these island girls will show you just why Tybee Island was nominated for Best of the Road’s Most Beautiful Town!
