We stayed for 4 days just after 4th of July . . . read all the forums ahead of time . . .wife saw something on HGTV or somewhere and thought it would be more plush, more shopping, etc. Really just a big beach town . . . we enjoyed it, but came from Folly in Charleston and have stayed at IOP and Sullivans . . . Tybee seems too big to have a unique vibe of those places and too small to offer the things that others places we've been like Cocoa Beach, Pensacola, Gulf Shores etc. . . .just my 2 cents. Glad we went, not high on list of things to do again though.
