Ways to Celebrate Christmas in Tybee Island

Residents of Savannah, GA are familiar with nearby Tybee Island and its annual events.   During the Christmas holiday this coastal town becomes a beach lovers winter wonderland.  There are your classic activities like parades and caroling, but also events that are unique to the Tybee Christmas tradition.

Start out the holiday season on December 2nd by Tybee Pier for “Lights on for Tybee” and the lighting of the tree.  Musical performances and other entertainment will be featured during this event.  Following the tree lighting on December 3rd is the Tybee Island Christmas parade.  Santa will be on hand for the event, which begins at the 14th street parking lot by the Christmas tree and travels to 4th street.  This two hour event will contain many surprises as well as photo opportunities with Santa.

To get the best of both worlds on land and sea, you can join the community for the Floating Christmas Parade on December 10th.  This is a great event that takes advantage of the cool weather and features a variety of festive boats decorated just for Christmas.  One of the more unique Tybee Christmas events is the Tybee “Teddy Bear” Tea that takes place the day after the Floating Christmas Parade.  It’s a great event for families to attend.  Each child and adult that attends will be served tea on porcelain and every child will get the opportunity to decorate and kiln fire their very own porcelain plate.

The 6th Annual Christmas Caroling Trolley is another unique event that takes a classic Christmas activity and puts a twist on it.  Join other carolers in the Christmas spirit by riding around on a trolley and spreading holiday joy across the island through song.  Holiday drinks and appetizers will be available to refresh your voice from a night of joyous singing.

There’s nothing like having a beach for the Christmas setting and Tybee Island is one such destination that can cross that off your wish list.  The tight community in Tybee Island only enhances the holiday spirit.  17th Street Inn is within close distance to all of the events and can act as your home away from home if you are visiting during the holidays.
