      If you have never heard of a lowcountry boil but you love fresh seafood and a fun atmosphere, you should head to The Crab Shack on your next visit to Tybee Island. Meals are served on an outdoor deck or screened in porch and the large platters of boiled shrimp, crawfish, corn on the cob and new potatoes combine to create a regional specialty which is just delicious. With overhead fans whirring and the smell of fresh shrimp boiling, you will know you have truly arrived in the south. Dump your shrimp shells in the handy trash cans situated in the middle of the round tables, relax, and enjoy the beautiful Tybee Island sunset over the local marsh.

      If you go:
      Be sure to buy a small packet of alligator food from your waiter or waitress and feed the small alligators held captive in a nearby lagoon. Kids love this!
