Tybee Island Light Station

Ordered by General James Oglethorpe, Governor of the 13th colony, in 1732, the Tybee Island Light Station has been guiding mariners safe entrance into the Savannah River for over 270 years. The Tybee Island Light Station is one of America's most intact having all of its historic support buildings on its five-acre site. Visitors can now see the lighthouse as your forefathers once knew it.

Tybee Island Marine Science Center

The mission of the Tybee Island Marine Science Center is to promote the appreciation, conservation, and understanding of the marine ecosystem of coastal Georgia through education and service. Marine education programs on Tybee Island began in 1987 with beach walks and seining. These classes were offered as an outreach program from the University of Georgia Marine Extension Service. In May 1988, only a year later, the Tybee Island Marine Science Center opened its doors.

Tybee Theater Cafe

Tybee Theater Café is an intimate theater venue with an ocean view. Located at the intersection of Highway 80 and Jones Avenue above Las Palmas restaurant, it’s just a five minute stroll from the beach. One reviewer says of the recent play "Love Letters" performed at the Tybee Theater "The play has been performed all over the world -- and by hundreds of talented performers -- but the new cafe seems like as good a place to see it as any theater on Broadway or in the West End."

…As Savannah is considered a top U.S. ‘walking’ city, it is important to book lodging within the Historical District – SPR’s preferred hotel, the Hyatt is located within this district. However, if you are looking for alternative lodging for a more ‘local’ feel and often cost effective trip, consider rentals by owner. The preferred agent for these rentals is Savannah Getaways. Rentals can be viewed…(www.savannahgetaways.net)…(choose browse rentals, browse ALL listings and then choose the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, location etc., email to inquire about the rates and availability, and you may want to inform them if you will be female and traveling alone, as they do attempt to place you in a safe area. My preference is to stay closer to Bull Street, preferably East, and North of Gaston as the area is always hopping with tourists (areas nearer to Forsyth Park tend to grow a little shady after dark)…
