Hit the Road!
The northernmost of Georgia's barrier islands, Tybee Island has sandy beaches, surfable waves, fishing piers and glowing sunsets over water. Locals coined the term "Lazaretto-itis," a fear of crossing the bridge to the mainland. So why not stay awhile? Mermaid Cottages (mermaidcottages.com) rents more than 40 homes. Nora's cottage, a few blocks from the beach, is a 1930s bungalow with a screened porch and full kitchen for boiling fresh crab or frying fish just pulled out of the Atlantic.
The Wall Street Journal describes some attractive trips.
