Listen to Tybee Island's Last Song Without Spending Your Last Buck

Posted April 7, 2010 by Jaclyn Liechti

Tybee Island Located less than 20 minutes away from Savannah, Georgia, Tybee Island is a laid-back seaside resort destination with three miles of ocean-front beaches and sand dunes. The shoreline and 18th century lighthouse offer a quaint, picturesque atmosphere for vacationers searching for fun in the sun. Named after a Native American word for “salt,” the island gained status after the Civil War as an escape from the heat of Savannah, and it remains a popular escape from city life.

DeSoto Beach Bed & Breakfast
: For a peaceful retreat, check into the DeSoto Beach Bed & Breakfast, located just steps from the sand and surf. Each of the four rooms is decorated in 1930s-style furniture and looks out over the ocean. After a day by the water, you can snooze in the hammock on the “sleeping porch,” mingle with other guests at the inn’s wine and cheese hour, or enjoy access to the neighboring DeSoto Beach Hotel’s oceanfront swimming pool. Weekday rates in April start at $159.95.

BEWARE of parking on Tybee Island! There is NO such thing as "free" parking. Even if the sign says "2 hour parking - decals included" you still have to look for the place where you have to pay. If you don't have a decal, then make sure you pay!
