The gotta-get-outta-town itch is setting in. Plus, you need a tan (no offense). It’s prime time to pack up and hit the open road.
Sea for Yourself
After a measly four-hour drive, relax at laid-back Tybee Island (just east of Savannah) for sand, serene sunsets, and nary a high-rise condo in sight. Or visit Grayton Beach, an artsy, chilled-out town along Florida’s Emerald Coast (mingle with eclectic locals at The Red Bar).
Marysia Swim bathing suits (based in Charleston — another getaway option) are as enticing as a cabana boy. Try on the pretty pieces at a trunk show tomorrow (noon to 7 p.m.) at Morgan Kylee, the first Georgia boutique to carry the line.
Lay It Out
Any old beach towel won’t do. Huff Harrington Home’s linen foutas ($42) can stand the sand and double as throws or wraps on chilly nights. Go wild with Maslin’s luxurious zebra beach towel ($225, mention DailyCandy for 10 percent off) in coral or navy, complete with leather carrying strap, available at Les Nouvelles’s showroom.
Avoid a hairy situation and let the experts at Wax take care of your nether regions. Make a splash with the salon’s new ecofriendly tote ($20; 10 percent of proceeds goes to Trees Atlanta), roomy enough to hold your beach essentials and emblazoned with “Less Bush. More Trees.”
