A road trip isn’t complete without the much-needed hunker down at a local food spot, and Atlanta food expert Skye Estroff is doing just that as the host of her new TV show “Foodie Road Trip.”

On the itinerary are five Tybee Island restaurants: Huc-a-poos, North Beach Grill, Salt Island, Savannah Praline Company and Stingray's.

She also makes stops at Vidalia and Alpharetta, each location in Georgia a love letter to her grandparents and her childhood; she spent her summers in Tybee.
