Any incredible Independence Day celebration concludes with a big bang. Of course, the holiday on Tybee Island is no exception.
What is better than a Fourth of July at the beach?
Come early and plan to stay late because this is one of Tybee Island’s busiest days. Book your stay at one of our spectacular properties, like Sandpiper Seaview 201 with a balcony with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and South Beach. It sits next to the Tybee Pier and Pavilion, perfect for watching the fireworks display.
Seas the Day is a four-bedroom Tybee island vacation rental with an ocean view from a spacious, covered deck, living room and dining room. Plan big, family meals on the deck or the dining table, which seats eight.
As it’s the Fourth of July, pick up a watermelon and ice it down for the celebration. If barbecue is on the menu, at Seas the Day you can throw those ribs on the outdoor grill. At Sandpiper Seaview, cook in a kitchen with an ocean view. What better place to prepare a holiday meal?
Spend the day at the beach, relaxing and playing in the water. Use Burke’s Beach Rentals for beach chairs and umbrellas. The service sets up the gear for you and takes it down. So you can enjoy a real vacation.
Speaking of a holiday, the Independence Day fireworks at Tybee Island start at 9 p.m., with the fireworks launched from the pier and easily viewed from any of Tybee Island's eastern beaches. The size of the crowd won’t matter as you’ll be able to catch the show from your balcony or deck.
You may also shoot some fireworks on private property as Georgia law allows them on July 3-4. But check about your particular property when you book your stay. Be aware that Tybee Island prohibits fireworks on its beaches, even on America’s birthday celebration.
In town for a few days before the island? Start your old-fashioned celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 2 at Fort McAllister State Park. The event includes artillery demonstrations, musket firings and living history guides in period outfits. Admission is $9.
Make your Fourth of July an exceptional memory for the entire family with a Tybee Island stay.
