WHAT TO DO
Tybee Island, with its three-mile-long beach backed by oat-colored sand dunes, is the kind of place that you go to get away. Even with its kicked-back style, there are still many diversions.
• The historic Tybee Island Light Station and Museum (912-786-5801) offers a glimpse into the area's historic past as well as the role played by the national landmark lighthouse. Equally fascinating for history buffs is the tour of the Civil War-era Fort Pulaski (912-786-5787).
Sea Kayak Georgia (888-529-2542) offers guided trips to suit your abilities.
• Like to explore by bicycle but didn't take yours along? Pack Rat (912-786-4013) and Sundance (912-786-9469) will get you up and going.
• If you like inshore, light-tackle fishing, Capt. Stan's Marshland Adventures (912-786-5943) can custom-fit your backwater experience.

EATERIES
The South is famous for its hospitality and distinctive food. Here are a few suggestions that fit both bills.
• Voted Savannah's best place to eat breakfast for 11 years running, Jodee & Joel's Breakfast Club (912-786-5984) continues to wow both locals and visitors alike. Think way beyond eggs and bacon.
• In the mood for Hot-As-Hell wings? How about some Dirty Bird BBQ? Café Loco (912-786-7810) serves these dishes and more along with some of the hottest blues acts in the South. Start off with a bucket of oysters and perhaps a rib appetizer. Also try Loco's famous crab soup.
• For more raucous action try dropping in to The Quarter Sports Bar & Grill (912-786-8966). The wings run from mild to hot to "Said Something Bad About the Cook's Mama." Other favorites include the New York-style steak sandwich, fried and BBQ chicken, raw or steamed oysters, and an array of burgers and munchies.
