Love for the Ladies: How to Celebrate Galentine’s Day on Tybee
Valentine’s Day is coming up, but we’ve already done enough talking about all the saccharine sappiness significant others enjoy on the holiday. If you’re not sure what to do with your special someone this year, check out our guide to Valentine’s Day on Tybee. Anyways, we’ve decided to do something a little different this time around and focus on the great love between gal pals. You guessed it. We’re talking about Galentine’s Day.
A fun celebration of feminine friendship, Galentine’s Day is observed on Feb. 13. It’s a time to get with your girls and show your love for one another by spending time together doing your favorite activities. While Galentine’s Day continues to grow in popularity each year, some may wonder about its origins. It turns out that we have the hit mockumentary sitcom “Parks and Recreation” to thank for it. Ever since episode 16 of the show’s second season, women around the country have followed in the footsteps of Leslie Knope, gathering their girlfriends and spreading sisterly love.
So, how exactly does one go about celebrating Galentine’s Day? Well that’s entirely up to you and your friends, but if you’re looking for some inspiration about celebrating on the island, you’re in the right place. Here are a few fun things you can do with your lady friends for Galentine’s Day on Tybee.
Book a beach rental.
Enjoy a girls’ getaway this Galentine’s Day and book a beautiful rental property. There are plenty of vacation rentals awaiting you and your bosom buddies. Whether you’re looking for a quaint cottage, an oceanfront oasis, or a bachelorette pad to party, you’re sure to find something that will suit your needs. Be sure to take advantage of special deals and discounts that are currently being offered during the off-season.
Enjoy a brunch date.
Brunch is pretty much a female pastime. Many a group of girlfriends have gathered around a table for brunch with bottomless mimosas in hand. There are a few brunch options on Tybee, so feel free to take your pick, but we recommend Fannies on the Beach, Sea Wolf Tybee, The Breakfast Club, Sunrise Restaurant, and one of Tybee’s newest additions, The Surfing Goat.
See a sizzling show.
Though Galentine’s Day is all about the girls, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little eye candy. On Feb. 9 at 8 p.m., the Tybee Post Theater will present “Bachelors of Broadway.” A trio of dashing men in dapper attire will take the stage, enthralling the audience with their thrilling vocal performances of beloved melodies from stage and screen. You’ll love their three-part harmonies as they sing symphonic arrangements of modern and classic musicals. It’s sure to be a show you and your gal pals won’t soon forget.
