...Tybee Island

It didn't take long to figure out that Tybee Island is the place to go for a quiet, relaxing beach getaway.

This sleepy resort town, located east of Savannah, and, in fact, once known as Savannah Beach, has just enough eating establishments and hotels to accommodate, but without turning the town into a metropolis of beach-laden commercialism. The businesses are neatly tucked away, leaving the sandy beach open for walking and shell-collecting.

The island is almost 22 square miles of marsh and wetland, but only about three miles of land area is inhabited with a population of way less than 5,000. And during the summer months, even when the island is stretched to its limits by thousands of beach-goers, it still offers a small-town feel.

Take a 20-mile stretch of road and bridges to reach Tybee Island from Savannah. Along the way, stop in at the historical Fort Pulaski National Monument.
