They'll love the Pirates House. I'm sure they can dress up. I was there in Feb. and at there twice. Yum Yum. The Historic District is wonderful to walk around and look at all the squares and old building. Take a trolley ride and get your bearings.

The Casbah is rather small. If your troup is large, it could be a problem for the restaurant. You could find yourself with a lot of giggles. I was looking at their web page for the Girl Scout Special. It sounds interesting. It certainly would be something unusual for them to talk about when they got home.

My mom just brought a group on a school trip and they went to the Tybee Marine Science Museum. I knew nothing about it, but they went anyway and she said that they thoroughly enjoyed it...and learned a lot.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Crab Shack. It's rather expensive for what you get, but if you're from out of town it's pretty cool. The Casbah is a lot of fun. It's fun to eat with your fingers instead of forks and knives. They offer some interesting activities, as well. Haven't been to the Pirates House in years but your group will probably enjoy it.

The Juliette Low House is definitely a high quality experience. Very educational and inspiring.

The beach is always worth a visit. The girls will need to stretch their legs and run around. The pier is free. Then take a short walk around to the far south end of the island. It's very pretty and less crowded than the main beach. Don't swim there...funny currents, stick to the main beach where the lifeguards are.

The Pirate's House has an excellent buffet for lunch. They also have children's Pirate Mask Menus. They use to be free, but now they charge a buck for them. I got one anyway.
Tybee Island is great. Might even get to see John Cougar Mellencamp buzzing around the Island on his bike. He owns a house on the beach.
If you go to the beach, bring the boogie boards. There are shops you can buy them from there if you don't have one. As said before, stay where the lifeguards are.
The Squares are great and there is a lot of history of the city you can learn on the tours. And they'll show you the bench that Forrest Gump was sitting on in the movie - it's in one of the squares. We took a ghost tour that left from the Pirate House parking lot and it was great. Started shortly after dark and I loved the way the Spanish Moss looked hanging over the streets and in the parks at night.
I agree with the person above about the Crab Shack. They did have a live alligator pond out front (small alligators and they were penned in). You can eat on the porch and the cats will try to talk you out of your food. Trees hang over the patio pretty low. It's an interesting place, but I wasn't too hot on the food or the prices. I have heard it is run by Paula Dean's son. If you like long lines, you can try out Paula Deans in Savannah. Not being partial to long lines, I never got there, but many of my friends went and they were glad they did.
If you like sweet tea, Carey Hilliards has awesome sweet tea. Everytime I go through there I buy a gallon or two to take home. There are free refills and when I ate there and got ready to leave, they'd give me a large cup of sweet tea to go as a free refill.
And of course there is the Juliet Lowe House.
I lived there for a year and it will always be my favorite city.
