Birds Of A Feather Flock To Tybee In Winter

mona's pelicanWhen the weather outside gets frightful, birds of a feather flock to Tybee in Winter!  Hey, y’all, it’s time for the annual migration of snowbirds from the north and our island is right smack dab in the middle of the flight path.  Mermaid Cottages always looks forward to November, December, January and February when we can welcome old friends and frequent return guests for the quiet season.

At first, our beloved snowbirds touch down with that iced up, frown-frozen, zombie stare and they just want to curl up in their cottages with our free Wi-Fi Internet, premium TV channels, great books, games and videos collections.  As they thaw and start to venture out, the lure of eco tours, boat charters, fishing, hiking, cycling, kayaking, shopping, dining, live theater and music, and voluntourism opportunities bring forth a spring within each of them.  Tybee becomes just the right place to be!

Most Mermaid Cottages are pet friendly, so pack up your wag pack and bring them, too.  You’ll enjoy … read more

Get Packed For Tybee Island In February!

baywatch lifeguardGet packed for Tybee Island in February!  We eat.  We dance.  We sing.  We party.  We run.  We walk. We act up.  We act out.  You know, pretty much the same things we do any other time of year.  You’ll want to be prepared and ready to enjoy lots of winter fun in our beautiful and historic hamlet by the sea and here’s a helpful list of what you’ll need.

 

1. For starters, yes, you’ll need a swimsuit.  In fact, make it a red, one-piece.  A remake of BAYWATCH will be filming on Tybee and they’re looking for males and females in swimsuits and summer wear.  Besides, you’ll want to look cute in case you run into The Rock or Zack Efron, right?

Tybee Island Is Just Like Being In The Movies

Tybee Island is just like being in the movies.  It’s the perfect setting for a Girls Getaway where you and your gal pals can enjoy some of the great on screen moments that have given you the best of memories.  New movies in production and productions already filmed here have brought us visits from stars such as Chris Evans, Ben Affleck, Whoopi Goldberg, Miley Sirus and Robert De Niro and Tybee has been quite the scene stealer for other feature films shot here, as well.  Whether it’s a classic road trip with your besties, that last hurrah with your posse before a trip down the aisle, some bonding time in the form of a sister-cation or a one tank trip when the girls just wanna have sun, this is the place where those quips and quotes from the screen come to life.

Young Hillary: Be sure to keep in touch C.C. ok? Young C.C.: Well sure we’re friends aren’t we?  -Beaches

Remember when you were very young and maybe got a 12-count box of crayons?  Pretty cool, huh, until someone else walked into the classroom with that gigantic 64-count, multi-tiered conglomeration from Crayola?  Now, you can have your pick from the colorbox of cottages at Mermaid Cottages.  From petite and intimate all the up to WOW!  The Mermaids will help you select just the right cottage for your next all girl Tybee soiree.  You really can have that little house with the white picket fence after all.

You can dance…You can jive…Having the time of your life…See that girl…Watch that scene
Dig in the dancing queen… – Mamma Mia

It’s never too late to catch up and recall the good times, the sad times, get over the mad times and remind yourselves there’s a bond between women that time nor trials can tear apart.  Call everyone together up high on the roof top at Coco’s Sunset Grille to toast the sunset, watch the shrimp boats unload the day’s catch and let the good times roll.  Put your smart’s to the test on Trivia Night and get the old team back in sync with a toast to the sun!

Vivi: [to herself, after Vivi discovers that Sidda is in Pecan Grove with the other Ya-Ya’s] Oh, what a surprise! Look what the backstabbing, traitorous cats dragged in! Oh, look who it is! All my old EX-FRIENDS! And the biological fruit of my womb… that rotted! – Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Tybee is a great place to mull about the Farmers Market on Mondays, shop for art in the local galleries or when the Tybee Arts Association has art shows and sales at the Tybee Lighthouse, or  over to Seaside Sisters when you need  that perfect gift and a delicious gelato at Sweetie Pie’s after a day of shopping.

Clairee Belcher: The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.  – Steel Magnolias

You never have to quibble over who gets the last shrimp or who grabs the biggest portions.  Tybee restaurants feature fresh seafood right from our Tybee waters with gracious portions.  Sip along on the famous fresh squeezed limeade under the pavilion at Gerald’s Pit & Shrimp while you wait for his delicious fried seafood  and barbeque combos.  Or, go gourmet all the way with the fine fusion stylings at Fish Camp.

Suyuan: That bad crab, only you tried to take it. Everybody else want best quality. You, your thinking different. Waverly took best-quality crab. You took worst, because you have best-quality heart. You have style no one can teach. Must be born this way. I see you.  – The Joy Luck Club

Tybee Island is just like being in the movies.  Assemble your all-star cast and hit the lights.  It’s time for your star turn.  It’s just for you and your girls and everything will be just right!

Quirky Meets Eerie

quirky meets eerieTybee has plenty of eccentric nicknames and monikers.  The one we hear the most is quirky.  Well, it’s almost time for Halloween, so when quirky meets eerie it can be very spooktacular! This weekend is a perfect example as Bo Bien Hut debuts it’s Rock & Roll Surf Zombie Shark Attack Heart Attack outdoor haunted trail.  It’s going to be another hauntingly family friendly adventure.  It runs October 22-24 and then again October 29-31, from 6-9 p.m. each night.  It’ll be an outrageous and ghastly treat that only cost $5 to enter (kids 5 and under are free!).  All proceeds will benefit our Tybee Maritime Academy, it’ll be worth quite a scare, don’t you think?

quirky meets eerie

Here come goblins and ghouls hoppin’ down the Haunted Hut Trail to a surf-a-go-go theme.  If y’all remember, a hydrogen bomb was ditched in the waters off Tybee back in 1958.  Legend has it that a great white shark bit into the Tybee Bomb as if it were food, making the shark radioactive.  It’s so bombed up with radiation even swimming past it can turn you into a zombie surfer…. read more
