Tucked away beneath the shade of Spanish moss resides Georgia's beloved barrier enclave and local getaway: Tybee Island. Aside from its laid-back, sugar-white beaches, this small island town is a hot-spot for blending Southern flavors with coastal ingredients. Walk right up from the beach; enjoy oysters raw, steamed, or fried as you watch the sun go down; and wash it all back with an icy margarita. Or, go for the crab cakes, pizza by the slice, or a cup of creamy gelato made early that morning. For a taste that's truly of the area, you have to go for shrimp and grits or a hearty crawfish etouffee, with a side of fried green tomatoes.
