Michelle, I'm sure you'll get lots of good suggestions from other Nomads, but while seeing the sights, can I urge you to take very speecial care if you're driving yourselves.
Might be best to pay a little extra for a local driver.

Bodrum is the only reasonable place in Turket that you should rent a car. Do that to switch between beaches. You may ask your hotel stuff for famous beaches they keep changing their names every year! For food, you will definitely be able to see some kebap places, try iskender. And if you can find a place for traditional food try mantı about 7 years ago
