I know about the Priate Fest. It is usually the 2nd weekend in October, but you better check that date for this year. Totally fun! It starts on Thursday night with a party to crown a Priate and Wench. It was at the Crab Shack 2 years ago. There are activities on Friday, a parade on Saturday, and a festival with music at the pier. It's a party all weekend long everywhere you go. Folks are dressed up and out to have fun!

October is my favorite time to go to Tybee. School vacations did not work out where we could attend the Priate Fest last year. I highly recommend it.

the pirate fest will surely be a future rally! go to tybee events and see everything they have going there. they have something happening all year long. For those new to Tybee Island the Labor Day Weekend Beach Bash will be a great introduction to the area and source of ideas for future trips. See everyone there!

If anyone is heading to the Pirate fest in October let us know hour impressions. We plan on making Tybee a yearly visit and we really like taking in different events. A pirate fest on Tybee is appropriate in view of the general history of the area. Savannah was a favorite resupply location for pirates and the Pirate House (now a restaurant) in Savannah is the oldest standing building in the city.

More on Tybee Island

Tybee Island has been named the "#1 Healthiest Beach in America" by Health Magazine and "Readers Choice Best Beach" by Georgia Magazine. This barrier island boasts three miles of beaches of oat-covered sand dunes that are perfect for sunbathing and frolicking on the beach and in the surf. Now if the hurricanes will hold off everything will be just fine.

The manager for Rivers End Campground called me and said he was holding some sites until the first part of July and will then be releasing them to the general public. So if you want to take in some beach time it's best to make your reservation soon. Otherwise, if we see another Airstream in the park we will stop by and say hello.

Last Call for RV Spots AT Riverside Campground

All camping spots set aside will be released on July 19th. Tybee is a beautiful place to visit especially with Savannah so close by but thus far there has been very little interest with Airforums members. At any rate we will be there so if anyone shows up then great.

We are brand new to the forums and will be taking delivery of our "new" AS in August. Would love to be there but our son is starting Auburn University this fall and we had already planned on camping at West Point, GA on the lake for the holiday weekend. We will have to consider it next year.
Thanks Mike

I'd love to come, but we're going to be at Red Top Mountain that weekend. Darn!

Tybee fun

Tybee is a great place. Take your bikes, you can bike most of the island. Enjoy the lighthouse museum. Of course there is the wonderful beach. You can bike to it.

Red Top Mountain

We are still considering Tybee Island, I guess we had better make up our minds pretty soon! We just returned from Red Top Mountain in Georgia. Site 66 and 67 are both back in sites, rated green for 25' or longer trailers. We liked the quiet, centrally located sites, higher up on the mountain, but able to see the lake through the trees. They do not take site specific reservations so arrive early to get the best sites. We found a good fishing spot down the hill behind the Yurt. It was also an easy lake access spot for our old dog to go swimming. Some unusual rock formations in that area also. Load up with groceries ahead of time there is only a gas station convenience store nearby. Have fun.

Red Top Mountain sounds good. Will check it out at some point. Lots of good places to visit in Georgia but I haven't made it to most yet. We do like to explore around as time allows.
