georgian travel

Technically summer isn't over until late September and the Georgia heat definitely proves that to be true. Lucky for us, we get to enjoy long summers and get in lots of beach time before cold weather hits. August is the perfect time to escape the heat on a staycation with your crew to one of Georgia's beaches. Tybee Island has surprisingly cheap oceanfront cottages that will have you and your girls feeling like Ariel.

Tybee Island, home to some of Georgia's most notable beaches, has a total land area of a whopping five miles. The tiny coastal community in Savannah is packed with sandy beaches, nautical excursions, and adorable shops and accommodations. Among these accommodations lies the Mermaid Cottages. Established in 2004, Mermaid Cottages owns over 50 tiny beach homes for rent and they are too cute for words. The modern, renovated homes are spread all throughout the island, with some on the beach and others no more than half a mile away. Some cottages are new and some are renovated versions of historical homes from the 1900s. Most have amazing ocean views and each one has something unique to offer, like the tiki hut at Canty's Cottage.
