Reasons to Visit Tybee Island in the Fall
Explore the Great Outdoors
Tybee Island’s bounty of pristine waterways and quiet bike paths make it a prime destination for nature lovers. From kayaking and sailing to biking and bird watching, the island offers countless ways to recharge and reconnect with nature.
Cooler fall temperatures make for refreshing outdoor events across Tybee Island. Celebrate the end of summer at the Labor Day Beach Bash an action-packed weekend filled with live music, free entertainment and a massive fireworks display. If dressing up is more your style, mark your calendar for the annual Tybee Island Pirate Fest. Be sure to brush up on your pirate lingo or you’re bound to walk the plank, matey!
Haunted History Tours
Savannah may be known as a city full of ghosts but Tybee Island has its share of darker history too! For only a few nights in October, join the Tybee Island Historical Society as they take a look back on the haunted history surrounding the Tybee Island Lighthouse and Battery Garland. Experience the darker side of Fort Pulaski National Monument’s history by lantern light during their nighttime tours.
Anyone who has been to Tybee Island knows that the destination is an oyster lover’s paradise. The island’s abundance of marshlands and creeks make it a popular habitat for these beloved bivalves. Fall officially marks the start of oyster season and just about every Tybee Island menu boasts a variety of dishes showcasing this seasonal delight.
Sit & Sip
Porch sittin’ is an art on Tybee Island. Fall brings cool breezes laced with warm sunshine, creating the perfect weather for swinging in a hammock or relaxing in a rocking chair. All you need is a glass of sweet tea (or a cocktail) and you’re officially on ‘Tybee Time’.
