Just about a 30-minute drive out of Savannah’s town center is the peaceful beach community of Tybee
. Check out the oldest, and tallest, lighthouse in Georgia, rebuilt in 1773, or head straight for the sand to unwind beachside. To refuel, stop by one of Tybee’s many seafood options running parallel to the beach. Hot Tip
: To avoid the crowds, head to the far end of the beach where the mouth of the river meets the ocean.
