Explore Georgia: Tybee Island Tips No One Tells You About

Ever wonder how can you maximize your visit to Tybee Island? We have gathered the best insider tips so you can plan a dream trip to one of the most unique places you'll ever visit.

BEST PLACE TO LAY DOWN YOUR TOWEL
Park near the Tybee Beach Beach and Pavilion (Tybrisa St, Tybee Island, GA 31328) use the bridge in front of the Tybee Island Marine Center turn right and walk towards the rock formation close to the sand dunes. This portion of the beach has a smoother sand, lots of shallow areas that are perfect for little kids to bathe safely, is less crowded, and because it's close to the sand dunes you will see a large variety of seaside birds.

"Weekend at Gilmer County, Georgia's Apple Capital"

 
This past weekend we headed off to Ellijay, GA. The city holds an annual Apple Festival and Gilmer County is known as the 'Apple Capital of Georgia'. The Apple Festival is held on Saturday, October 09, 2010- 9:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday, October 10, 2010- 9:00am - 5:00pm, Saturday, October 16, 2010- 9:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday, October 17, 2010- 9:00am - 5:00pm at Ellijay Lions Club Fairgrounds. I have to say that if you are planning a visit you must take Hwy 52 (also known as the "Apple Alley") and visit the local orchards and farm stands to buy fresh crisp Georgia apples.

 

I HIGHLY recommend to buy a gallon of apple cider, apple donuts and those delicious apple pies you see in every orchard. They are simple AMAZING. It's truly a magnificent road trip. There is also many antique shops around Ellijay that are worth the visit. I stopped at Mountainside Antiques on our way back and found a great antique to take home.
