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!

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?
