The perfect addition to your Savannah trip. Where to stay, what to eat, and what to see.


Less than a 30-minute drive east of Savannah, you'll find a relaxing beach town that's been hosting vacationers in droves for over 130 years. In 1887 the Central of Georgia Railroad completed a line to Tybee Island, making it a destination for those looking for a weekend away ever since.


You'll enjoy an absolutely beautiful drive over right next to the tracks the entire way there. It's definitely a drive you'll want to roll the windows down for!


You'll often hear about the resort-focused Hilton Head Island to the north, and while it's certainly a destination worth visiting, Tybee is a much more relaxed and affordable option that deserves your attention. If you're looking for a relaxing beach weekend away in a clean town right outside of the city while feeling worlds away, this is the place.


After 2 days in Savannah, we tacked on 2 days to unwind at the beach and to explore. Here's everything I'd suggest. We've done this twice now, and each time it's the perfect relaxing end to our time away.
