We travel to Tybee Island every year for vacation. It is my favorite place to be and is so relaxing. Check out my favorite places to visit and where we always stay when we visit Tybee Island, GA.
Where to stay
First thing to talk about is where to stay. Tybee Island isn’t that big, but there are a lot of different hotels and condos. We have stayed at hotels until the past 3 years. We now stay at a condo. The difference in the prices is only about $200 and we have a full kitchen, washer and dryer, full bath with a jacuzzi, bedroom, and it is beach front. We also have access to a very nice pool and a restaurant and bar. We always stay in the same room every time we go which has an awesome balcony with a pretty view of the ocean. We stay at BeachSide Colony. They have rooms available for a couple, all the way up to a huge family or multi family vacation. Their prices are great and if you order online you can get a 10% discount using the code 10online

Where to eat
There is only one place you will want to eat at when you visit Tybee Island. Yeah they have like a Subway and an Arbys and some seafood places, but the best place to eat at is a place called Stingrays. It is outside so you get the full beach experience. They offer many different types of different seafoods, but my favorite is the fried shrimp basket. They are not really expensive either. I think the basket is right around $10. They also offer mixed drinks and beers and stuff. Live music is played nightly.
Places to visit
There are many different activities you can do while at Tybee. Here is a list of my favorites.
1. Go fishing on the Pier. This is so much fun and doesn’t cost a lot. You can bring a fishing pole and some bait and fish all night long.
2. Wet Willies. If you are over 21 then you need to visit Wet Willies at least once. They are a slushie bar, but for adults. They have a lot of great mixed drinks. My favorite is Call A Cab. They run around $8 but they are for big cups and you can save the cups as a souvenir.
3. Mike’s Dolphin Tours. If you will be at Tybee for longer than 2 days then this is a must. When we go, we stay for a week and it gets tiring going to the beach all day every day so we add in a little fun. The tickets are $15 per adult and $8 per kid, age 12 and under. Not only will you get to see a lot of sea creatures but you will also get a little tour of Tybee Island and the beautiful lighthouses.
4. Tybee Island Marine Science Center. If you have younger kids, they will love visiting the Science center. There are so many neat things and you can learn all about the sea life that inhabits the beach at Tybee Island.
