Gramping With Mermaid Cottages

Gramping with Mermaid Cottages is a new trend whose time has come.  Grandparents who love to travel and who are looking for new and inventive ways to connect with their grandchildren are also giving some much-needed time alone to their children for a win-win-win situation. We’re entering the shoulder season that’s very desirable for those travelers who love beach vacations without the crowds, the traffic and the long waits for restaurants and recreation. As it turns out, it’s also a great time to indulge grandchildren, strengthen family bonds, and nurture one’s love for connecting families and generations. Tybee Island and Mermaid Cottages just happen to be among the best places to enjoy these skip-generation getaways.
