The beach was always nice at Tybee Island and on the way you can stop at historic Fort Pulaski for some more history.  You can also check out the town of Thunderbolt where my grandfather used to operate a  shrimp boat and we could go and watch them process the shrimp (and enjoy fresh shrimp cooked any number of ways).  Skidaway Island is lovely with it’s oak trees.  I could go on and on.
