First, let me say that our stay at East Bay Inn was enjoyable and we would definitely stay there again. They are located in the heart of Savannah at 225 East Bay St., and can be reached by phone at (912)238-1225. This was not a planned destination. Our original plan was to go straight through Savannah and on to Florida. When we realized that it was going to be after 10pm before we reached our intended destination of Amelia Island, and that's if we didn't stop for dinner, we revised our plans and added an overnight stay in Savannah. While driving through a section of hotels just steps away from Water St., we spotted the East Bay Inn. I thought that it surely would be more expens...Read More

We headed over to "The Crab Shack" on Tybee Island for dinner. (Tybee is the beach town immediately adjacent to Savannah.) The Crab Shack is a little over-the-top with the marketing, but it is a fun place to eat. You sit outdoors on a huge deck overlooking what looks to me like tidal marshes. The deck is built around trees that are wrapped in lights, and there are large fans which I assume are to keep away mosquitoes. Oh, and they have a pond of alligators. We're not sure why, other than the novelty. The menu is primarily steamed or boiled seafood such as many types of crab, shrimp, crawfish, mussels, oysters, and clams with sides of sausage, potato, and corn. It is "peel and eat," so expe...Read More
