It used to be you would escape downtown Savannah out to Tybee Island's clean uncluttered stretch of sandy shore by boat, by rail or by car. Today you can make the 20 minute drive from downtown across island bridges through modern island communities where local Savannahians live and play year round. Your final stop, Destination Tybee reveals the same family friendly village-like feel with just the right renewing sense of remove from everyday cares of that bygone era first embodied on coastal Georgia's northern most beach. Whether you choose to stay by the shipping lane at the mouth of the Savannah River or "Savannah Beach's" end of the line Atlantic facing beach at the other end of the island, the sparkling Atlantic waters meets your expectations.
