This Dog Will Show You How To Have The Best Tybee Island Doggie Date
Beau is a 6-month-old English Creme Goldendoodle with a knack for exploration. Watch as this fluffy gentleman shows you how you and your pup can tour dog friendly Tybee Island like a pro.
First stop: The Lighthouse
The lighthouse makes a perfect place to begin any doggie date. History buffs will delight in learning the impressive history of the oldest and tallest existing lighthouse in Georgia, and pups will enjoy prancing around the lighthouse’s well-kept grounds (just remember to keep them outside the fenced area!).
Second stop: Jaycee Park
Dog friendly and shady, this park is a doggie dream. When it comes to playtime, Beau loves options, and this place has it all: room to chase frisbees, new furry friends to sniff and gigantic trees to relax beneath. There are tons of seating options for mom to rest, too!
Third stop: The Sugar Shack
Hot dogs love cold treats. When it comes to ice cream, Beau is a simple guy; he goes for a vanilla cone. His mom, on the other hand, prefers to choose from the more adventurous hand-dipped ice cream flavors, like banana pudding. Pups are allowed on the mint green patio, where they can cool off and enjoy a dish of water.
Last stop: Fort Pulaski
This national park is one of Tybee Island’s oldest treasures. Pups and parents alike can stroll through the fort’s remains, walk the picturesque nature trails surrounding the massive structure and venture out to the stretches of sandy beaches overlooking the gorgeous Cockspur Lighthouse (be sure to keep your pooches on a leash!). End the day with a scenic selfie — Beau never misses a photo op!
