I'm from Iowa and taking my daughter on a college visit to South Carolina. She would like to spend a day at the beach, and see Savannah. But we are going March 30-April 2. Is this a big spring break destination? We don't want to be in the middle of wild college shenanigans on this trip!
South beach is removed from the main beach a bit and most of the beach goers go to the central or North beach. Granted that Tybee beach is not that large but I have not seen a lot of Spring break folks there at that time. IF the weather cooperates, this will be a great time to go but the water will be chilly, but downtown Savannah will be bright and alive with visitors.
Yes, Tybee Island is a spring vacation destination. However, the city has taken steps to curb drinking and discourage spring vacation activities.
In Savannah you will find plenty of variety of things to do. The beach at Tybee Island to me seemed to be more of a laid back beach. Lots of beach with a few places to eat and drink.
Tybee island is not on the spring break list fore the collage kids. You and your daughter will really enjoy the sand and sights around Savannah. Be sure to check out the squares that were set up when the city was built. There is a lot of great history in and around the area.
One advice I will give you is to you your compass for awhile as your mind will say one direction and you will be going in another.
We really enjoyed our stay and will go back again. we did not have enough time with 7 days to see all that we wanted to see.
I know that you will have a great time and enjoy the trip.
My daughter and I used to go to Columbus, GA to see my son (her brother).
the time on the road gave us time to really get to know each other better.
There is nothing better than alone time one on one with your child.
Have a great trip and greater time together.
LOL! Despite Savannah, GA is a touristic destination all year long, it is far from the craziness-like if a Panama City Beach, FL during Spring Break, for example. Savannah, GA is the true Southern hospitality representation. Nice people, wonderful food, great places to visit, historic, cultural, musical, nature at its best and
the tranquility we desire...to not say about the great chances of meeting some "ghosts" (as you know, Savannah has many haunting stories to tell). Some drawbacks would be that more popular places, like River Street, Tybee Island and other islands and beach at Savannah shoreline areas, may be crowded. Plan and time your visits well to avoid long waits. Somehow, we relate beach going and good times with sunshine. Well, weather uncertainty is an issue in Savannah. It is not unusual to have at that time you are going, still cooler days (about 52 Fahrenheit), some cloudy days and the very do often foggy weather. I never let the weather rob my intentions to have a good time. Enjoy your trip to Savannah, GA, as it is for me Paradise on Earth!
I just googled that date, they have it this week of the 20th, but back in school when you come down here. That's the regular schools. College I am not sure.
no....keep in mind while you are enjoying Savannah, Ga., you are also close to Tybee Island and Hilton Head..Enjoy the whole area.
Not sure when Spring break is there this year. We visited in early May and it was not crowded at all.
