"The Bay" is in good company: some of the others also listed were Blowing Rock, North Carolina, Jekyll Island, Georgia, and Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Writer Perri Blumberg's goal was to present "quirkier gems... surprising southern destinations to book for a rollicking trip with your best sidekicks in the coming year."
Several local businesses were mentioned by name in the article, including Treehouse Yoga, Spa at the Bay and Solar Boat Tours.
Here's Blumberg's take on the Bay:
Seaside allure gets muddled with artistic soul in this groovy southern town that you'd probably just drive right past on your way to New Orleans if you weren't in the know (most aren't).
While in town, you can relax with your posse during a restorative class at Treehouse Yoga, which offers just as much whimsical and free-flowing fun as its name might hint at. It would also be an excellent idea to sign everyone up for a day of TLC at Spa at the Bay, but if time is tight, take the road less traveled and opt for an unforgettable boat excursion, checking out the harbor and surrounding bayous, with the help of Solar Boat Tours.
