what's there to do on tybee?

We are a family of 4. Kids age 10&12. We have forever vacationed in North Myrtle Beach but are looking for something a little less crowded and a little less commercial--but--we still like to go our for ice cream and mini golf in the evenings. We don't want to be so far off the beaten path that we have to drive an hour to eat. (was not impressed with the Outer Banks for this reason) How far from Savannah? Things for the kids to do?? Thanks for the info!!

Tybee is a lot slower than Mytle Beach. On Tybee you have the beach and some shops. There are some really good places to eat down there and a few ice cream shops. About 5 miles from Tybee is the only Putt Putt near the island. Savannah is about 15 miles. It will take about 20 to 30 minutes to get there.

Tybee is small, just a few miles long. You will not find all the putt putt, go carts tracks and game rooms and shows as in Mytle Beach.

Thanks for the info John144! We stay on the North End of Myrtle just because we avoid the show and go cart tracks. But like I said, we do like an ice cream cone or a game of putt putt a couple nights a week. Are we far from Savannah on Tybee? Is Savannah a "day trip" or should that be saved for a whole trip devoted to Savannah? We have been to Outer Banks, Isle Of Palm (wild dunes) and Hilton Head in addition to North Myrtle. I was just looking for a little something different this year. We get in a rut going to the same place year after year.

The weather the first of April is usually nice. The water temps will still be cool. There are no golf courses on Tybee, do a search for Savannahgolf courses.

You will have no problems touring Savannah as a day trip while at Tybee. It is 20 to 30 minutes from Savannah to Tybee. Those who live on Tybee work in Savannah. You been to Mytle Beach and Hilton head. HIlton Head is much larger and more developed than Tybee. Tybee is an old throw back beach town. You have the beach and some resturants and not much more.
