Tybee Island GA
Tybee Island's tranquil Margarita'ville
style atmosphere and miles of sandy beaches attract millions
visitors each year. Located at the top of Georgia's small, but
beautiful Atlantic coastline. Home to about 3500 permanent
residents, mail is picked up the at the local Post Office as
well as permanent parking stickers for verifiable residents,
utility bill please. In other words, parking meters
everywhere. But a dip off of Tybee's beaches, or just watching
the sunset are all well worth the dollar an hour street parking.
Twenty miles to the west, thru a
series of bridges and marsh lined causeways, you'll find
Historic Savannah Georgia. Savannah
is Georgia's First City and one of Americas most picturesque.
Being spared from the destruction of the Civil war, Savannah is
commonly referred to as the Jewel of the South. Hosting the largest
number of registered historic building in the United States.
About twenty miles to the north of
Tybee, as the gull fly's, is the exclusive resort community of
Hilton Head Island, SC. In comparison to the ritzy Hilton Head,
Tybee's casually comfortable demur has earned it it's nickname
of the Redneck Rivera, or a "Mayberry on margaritas".
But Tybee has more than one secret, and a quick internet search
on Wikipedia tells of a more infamous place. "Tybee Island may be best known outside of Georgia as the home of the Tybee Bomb, a nuclear weapon that was lost offshore on February 5, 1958."
