Explore Georgia: Tybee Island Tips No One Tells You About

Ever wonder how can you maximize your visit to Tybee Island? We have gathered the best insider tips so you can plan a dream trip to one of the most unique places you'll ever visit.

BEST PLACE TO LAY DOWN YOUR TOWEL
Park near the Tybee Beach Beach and Pavilion (Tybrisa St, Tybee Island, GA 31328) use the bridge in front of the Tybee Island Marine Center turn right and walk towards the rock formation close to the sand dunes. This portion of the beach has a smoother sand, lots of shallow areas that are perfect for little kids to bathe safely, is less crowded, and because it's close to the sand dunes you will see a large variety of seaside birds.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS WALK – VERMONT TO DC


What does happiness mean to you, and how do you pursue it? How can communities, governments and institutions support the conditions that allow a healthy pursuit of happiness?
 
Linda and Paula, two mothers with grown children, are taking a 6.5-week, 550-mile walk because they believe it is time to start measuring what matters: our education, our relationship with the environment, our work and family lives, spirituality, culture, honest and transparent governance, the ways we use our time, and the security that comes from a comfortable standard of living. A healthy economy is more than money. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is not, and never was, a measure of well-being, yet it has been widely utilized in this way. We need measures of wellbeing to guide an economy that truly supports our pursuit of happiness and that of our children and our
grandchildren.

Expecting to arrive in DC on October 7th, they plan to convey to our national leaders the importance of measuring what truly matters: happiness and wellbeing, not just the sheer dollar volume of commercial transactions in the economy. Along the way, Linda and Paula will host "happiness cafes" and "happy hours,” join in local community events, and ask everyone they meet about what really matters to Americans. They will be posting some of these conversations at www.happinesswalk.com/our-blog.
 



Paula and Linda are central Vermont residents and founding members of Gross National Happiness USA (GNHUSA), a non-profit, non-partisan organization that is working to increase happiness and well-being by defining and measuring what truly matters to people. Extensive research shows that we get what we measure:  the social and economic indicators we use shape our behavior. This six-week walk will draw attention to the urgent need for an expanded set of indicators - one that views economic well-being as part of a broader definition of happiness - one that includes community vitality, environmental preservation, education, good governance, psychological and physical well-being.
