On Monday, August 21, 2017 – all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. For the first time since 1979, one of natures’ most amazing sights will appear over our coastline. Our Georgia coastline will be a perfect place to view the eclipse. Although we won't be in the path of totality, we can expect about a 97% Visibility from Tybee. The eclipse is on a Monday, so why not make a long weekend out of it!  Start your solar celebration on Friday, and enjoy the sun’s rays all weekend before it gets soaked up by the moon on Monday!  Check out our specials page to get a great deal on a weekend eclipse escape. 

 

3.  TAKE IN AN AMAZING SUNSET

Solar eclipses happen once every 40 or 50 years… that’s a special event.  But why not take a moment to witness a spectacular event – that happens at the end of every day – take in a sunset, on a boat or from a dockside restaurant – with a cocktail with some fresh shrimp – off the boat.  Slow down, relax, renew take in the views. Sip, Savor, Repeat.

 

4.  ONE LAST SUMMER FLING BEFORE THE KIDS RETURN TO SCHOOL!

One of the greatest gifts you can give to your kids or grand-kids is lasting memories of summer family vacations. Some of the best moments in our lives come from either playing in the sand as kids, or remembering a simpler time when all we had to worry about was catching the next wave, or building the biggest sand castle.  Make lasting summer vacation memories by renting a home for your vacation where you can play all day, prepare family meals together, and unwind with family game nights or family movie nights. Thinks childhood memories are made of.
