A Dog’s Guide to Tybee Island
More times than not, being a loyal four-legged companion can be hard work. So, what’s a dog to do? We believe Fido deserves a relaxing island vacation, so that’s why we’ve made planning a ‘walk in the park’ with this puppy point of view guide to Tybee Island.
Let your nose be your guide while you sniff out the stiff pet-friendly competition on Tybee Island. From hotels and inns to vacation rentals and campgrounds, be sure to pack your doggie bed for a relaxing weekend in your new surroundings. If you’re anticipating being a bit homesick, choose from a variety of beautiful rental homes from Mermaid Cottages, Natural Retreats or Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals. If your humans prefer the amenities of resort living; try the Atlantis Inn, Dunes Inn and Sandcastle Inn for fantastic four-legged accommodations. Those seeking to stay close to nature, visit our local RV campground, River’s End. Still in search of the perfect spot to cozy up on your dogcation? Beg your humans take a short drive over to Savannah for even more pet-friendly hotels and homes.
Tybee is home to delicious pooch-perfect restaurants that you and your humans are sure to enjoy. Roll on your back and bask under the warm sun while you dine alfresco at local favorites like The Crab Shack, Fannie’s on the Beach, CoCo’s Sunset Grille or Sting Ray’s Seafood. Be sure to leave room for dessert and sneak a lick (or two) of your favorite ice cream flavors from the Sugar Shack.
Mingle with the local dogs at the beautiful grounds of Jaycee Park. With plenty of space to play catch or take a quick catnap in the shade, you and your human will enjoy the outdoors at this pleasant park. Love exploring historical landmarks? Learn about the coastal history of our small town while you sniff around Fort Pulaski and their nature trails. If adventure gets your tail wagging, get out on the open water and kayak or embark on a dolphin or charter adventure. Be sure to pack your puppy life jacket if you plan to partake in any water activities! Before you head home, don’t forget to grab some Beach Bum Biscuits from Seaside Sisters for the perfect Tybee treat.
