This month we are featuring the beauty and warmer temperatures that Southern Tybee Island offers. This Georgia barrier island has been a landing pad for campers since the 1800s! With more than three miles of wide, clean beaches, a plethora of history surrounding several American wars, many opportunities to get in tune with nature, and the chance to experience an exciting night life, there’s no question why we have chosen this location as our Hot Spot this month!
Tybee Island houses more than three miles of recently re-nourished sand beaches.
