What’s Happening in Tybee Island for 4th of July

Tybee Island will be full of activity from the locals relaxing Tybee style as well as the many who flock to our perfect area for 4th of July vacations.  The island starts to fill up with all things beachy patriotic fun as, well, that’s the name of the game here!  From family friendly events to Tybee’s nightlife, it’s really no surprise that so many people choose to make it their destination.

Did I hear someone say fireworks?  Of course I did!  Fireworks are only the second most important component of the 4th of July.  What’s the first you ask?  Celebrating our independence of course!

Tybee’s annual celebration of America’s independence kicks off on July 3rd with a spectacular fireworks display launched around 9:15pm.  They are staged on the Tybee pier, but they are easily viewed from any of the eastern beaches.  There’s nothing quite so amazing as looking up into the sky and seeing bursts of colors, shapes, and designs meant to bring out the patriotic in all of us.

Like I said, you can watch the fireworks from the beach almost anywhere on the eastern beaches of the island, but don’t be surprised when you encounter lots of traffic and a big crowd…so come early and stay late!

On July 4th, Tybee is proud to be a part of a unique event, called Beach Sweep.  Sounds interesting doesn’t it?  Well it is!  This is the event where volunteers gather together on the beach to show patriotism by cleaning up after the fireworks!  Volunteers should meet at the Tybee Pavilion at 6:30 am for directions and supplies.  Bags, gloves, grabbers and water will be provided, and volunteers are reminded to wear a hat and sunscreen.

We certainly love to have a good time here in Tybee Island and the 4th of July is no exception, even if it does happen right in the middle of a work week!  There are still a few rooms available at the 17th Street Inn and we’d love to have you – better make your reservations soon though because they are filling up fast!

Tybee Island is home to so many things to do and see that just about every place you can go will have you wishing you had more time to spend here!  What are some of your favorite things to do in Tybee?
