Along with creating several jobs for residents in Savannah and the surrounding areas, they're also creating more opportunities for the world to experience the beauty of the Lowcountry! From the Southern charm of Savannah to the laid-back atmosphere of Tybee Island, our two cities offer visitors the best of both worlds. Tybee Island, known as Savannah's Beach, is located just 20 minutes from downtown Savannah. So, make it a weekend stay and experience a taste of Southern hospitality. 

What to Do When You Get Here

Start your day with the locals, and pair a signature coffee with "Leo's Big Breakfast" skillet at The Collins Quarter. Tour the squares and learn about the extensive history of downtown Savannah. Interact with historic figures of the past while Old Savannah Tours brings history to life. After your tour, visit the local shops and take a piece of Savannah home with you! Getting hungry? Prepare your taste buds for our unique Lowcountry cuisine, you definitely won't be disappointed.  Head over to The Fitzroy and enjoy the signature "Fitzroy Burger" with a "Whiskey Smash" for lunch. If you're in the mood for a locally caught lunch, venture to Tybee Island for a "Fisherman's Stew" at Salt Island Fish & Beer. While you're on the island, stroll around and visit the local shops. Pick up a unique find at Seaside Sisters or put your creative skills to work at Glazed and Confused. Rent a bike at Fat Tire Bikes and pedal to the beach! Get a heavy dose of vitamin sea before you head to The Deck for dinner. Just steps from the shore, The Deck is the only beach front restaurant on Tybee Island. Try their newest menu item: the "5 Spice Pork Belly" and top it off with a local brew.     


Start the festivities at Coco's Sunset Grille. Watch the sunset and enjoy a free shot on the deck as the conch shell sounds in the air! Hop on 80 and take a 20-minute trip back to Savannah and join the locals in the lively nightlife. From outdoor concerts on River Street, to live music bars and pubs, to three story dance clubs, and even fireworks! Savannah doesn't disappoint when the sun goes down. You'll have so much fun that you'll want to call us and extend your stay!
