There is no more spectacular way to ring in the New Year than to take in an amazing fireworks display, of which you can find many in Savannah. And there is no better place to watch the show from than from the beach, which is what Savannah’s Tybee Island celebration provides. Find a spot on the beach on the south end of the island about 15 minutes from Savannah or grab a spot at countless restaurants or bars near the pier. The fireworks begin at midnight. For something in town, you can find the most exciting atmosphere along River Street, directly beside, you guessed it; the river.
