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.

Smith-Gilbert Gardens Easter Egg Hunt



Mark your calendars, Smith-Gilbert Gardens is hosting the first annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 4! The garden will be open during normal business hours (9am – 4pm). The first hunt will start at 10am and the last hunt will be at 2pm. Your entry fee includes garden admission, 1 Easter egg hunt, a chance to meet the Easter bunny, free craft tables, as well as other vendors. The price for non-member children is $10.00 and adult entry is $7.00. There is a discounted rate for SGG Members ($5.00 per child & adults free) as well as the opportunity to register early.


We really wanted to provide a unique take on your traditional community Easter Egg Hunt. Each hunt will be planned for the specific age group! That way children of all ages will be challenged and have fun!” said, Christine Davis, Smith-Gilbert Garden’s Event Manager. “We hope people will enjoy this unique experience as well as a beautiful spring day in our 16 acre Garden.”

There will three group hunts in three separate Garden Collections. This means that each age group will have a hunt that will match their skill level: 0 – 4 year olds will be in the Perennial Garden with tall grass hiding the eggs, our 5 – 8 year olds will get a chance to hunt for eggs along our Woodland Paths, while our 9 – 12 year olds will find it much more difficult to locate eggs in our Conifer Collection. Because of the unique environment of each hunt, pre-registration will be available for each age group/time slot. Due to the limited space, we will not be able to guarantee openings in your age group or time slot on the day of the hunt. All Easter Eggs will be filled with tickets, where children will have the chance to choose their own prizes based on the number of tickets collected from our Prize Table. Also don’t miss the opportunity to take some great family photos in the Garden while the flowers are blooming!
