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.

Stan the Lovesick Snowman: Love Warms Even the Coldest Heart Jan. 2-Feb. 2 at Center For Puppetry Arts

A snowman falls head-over-heels for a stove at the Center for Puppetry Arts

Opposites attract in this charming tale of unrequited love.  Stan the Lovesick Snowman plays at the Center for Puppetry Arts Jan. 2 – Feb. 2, 2014.  Stan’s adorable story begins after a chance encounter with a dog that has been sent outside in the wintry cold.  The dog tells the snowman about a warm stove inside the house, and with a “crack-crackle” in his heart, Stan falls in love with the wood-burning beauty.   The unlikely romance, doomed from the start, is only the beginning in this hilarious and heartwarming tale as Stan later discovers that a young snowwoman is swooning over him as well.

Adapted and directed by the Center’s artistic director, Jon Ludwig, Stan the Lovesick Snowman is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s short story “The Snow Man.” 


It was a natural fit for this winter-inspired show to follow on the tails of our popular holiday classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” said Ludwig. “Stan is the ultimate hopeless romantic.  There is so much humor in a snowman in love with a wood stove and there is a sweet lesson that ‘love will win in the end.’  Let’s warm ourselves up with a charming tale of misdirected love and knowing who your real friends are!”


Husband and wife puppeteer-duo, Tim and Amy Sweeney, portray 13 characters in the production including Stan the Snowman, Abigail the Snowwoman, Alice the Dog, the Moose Mailman, a trouble making Cat and more.  This delightful fairy tale, recommended for ages 4 and up, will melt the hearts of audiences everywhere.

Stan the Lovesick Snowman is presented in the Downstairs Theater, Jan. 2 – Feb. 2, 2014. Show times are as follows:

·         Tuesday – Friday: 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
·         Saturday: 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
·         Sunday: 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
