Pack lots of sun screen and shorts, it'll be HOT here that time of year. Two places you have to eat at here... The Shell House and The Chart House.
Tybee is too much of a tourist trap for me though.

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the www.mightyeighth.org Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum just off I-95. We were intending to go to Fort Pulaski, (another recommended spot to visit) and ended up spending the entire day at the museum. My daughter really enjoys taking an evening walking ghost tour downtown. Great place to visit but beware the heat and the bugs is you are not right on the water.

Know the area very well. If you can, spend a little time in Beaufort SC. Southeast tip of South Carolina. You can spend days exploring the area. Lots to see and a great M/C riding area. Here are just a few of many things you may want to checkout.

Parris Island, USMC:
Marine Corps Museum, Parris Island
http://www.pimuseum.us/visit.htm

Hunting Island State Park: Great ride to the barrier island region of SC and a very scenic area. Take Highway 21 east out of Beaufort and ride till it dead ends at the Atlantic Ocean. Even a light House built in 1859
http://www.huntingisland.com/

If you have never had a “Low Country Boil” locally called “Frogmore Stew” do it. Fresh shrimp, corn on the cob, sausage, potato’s and a few other items. Boiled, served and don’t forget the ice-cold beer. No better place than:

The Original Steamer Oyster & Steakhouse
168 Sea Island Pkwy (843)522-0210

Just across the Hwy. 21 bridge heading east out of Beaufort. Ask any local they will tell you where it is.


Frogmore Stew
1 1/2 gallons water
Juice of one (1) lemon
Salt to taste
3 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
2 pounds sausage (kielbasa, etc.), cut into 1/2" slices
10 to 12 ears of corn on the cob, broken into 3" pieces
4 pounds uncooked shrimp in shell

In a large stock pot, add the water, lemon, salt, and Old Bay Seasoning; bring to a boil.
Add sausage and gently boil, uncovered, five minutes. Add corn and cook an additional five minutes (begin timing immediately, don't wait until water is boiling). Add shrimp and cook three minutes longer. Remove from heat, drain immediately, and serve.
Yields 8 servings.

May we never find the end of the road!

Be aware... the corn on the cob they serve down here is NOT the sweet corn you are used to up in the NE...It is what we (from PA) call "field corn", or feed corn, for cattle. I REALLY miss sweet corn in the late summer.

I'll throw in WV as a route to get down there. Beautiful roads, and if you haven't gone to Fayetteville to see the river gorge bridge that is something to see.

that depends a lot on who cooks it. at the savannah bmw rallie last month at tybee it was sweet corn and most of the time i've ever eaten low country boil. i really can't think of ever having any that wasn't done with sweet corn. cooking everthing in the same pot can change the taste of the other ingredients.

Perry,

Here in Pawleys Island we ad some of them little red 'taters and some green peppers and onions to that stew. We also use Old Bay on everything from popcorn to french fries to scrambled eggs.

Talking

We have had it in many different variations. Everyone has their own little twist on what goes into a "low country boil". It's all good!!! Especially after a few hours on the m/c when everything seems right in the world and you are hungry for new roadside eating experience.

We took a long m/c ride up into Tennessee Saturday. Had the best "greek salad". Just a roadside diner in the middle of nowhere. The ingredients were ultra fresh, we were really hungry and it was a beautiful day to be riding.

Good Ride, Good Food, GOOD TIMES!!!

May we never find the end of the road!

2-2.5 hours
Hwy 17 out of Savannah is almost always congested (in town). Watch out for the drivers down here, no turn signals, cutting you off, cell phone zombies, etc.
