4 Things You Didn’t Know about Winter at Tybee Island
When you think of winter vacations, do you think “beach?” Probably not, but you should! Winter is a great time for a beach getaway to Tybee Island. Not a lot of people think about going to the beach during that time of year, but it’s actually a great season to visit. Here are just a few of the reasons why.
Low Rates. Winter is the time to save money on Tybee Island vacation rentals, as well as attractions. Whether it’s a beach house with an ocean view, a townhouse with a pool or luxury apartment, off-season rates will save you money. You don’t want to miss out on a chance for great deals on beautiful properties with Southern Belle Vacation Rentals. It’s the perfect time to “test drive” a beach house you’ve had your eye on for a summer vacation, too!
Mild Weather. If you’re thinking winter is too cold to go to the beach, think again. It’s the South, after all, so there’s still plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. Sure, Tybee Island has a few wintery days, but it’s not snow or ice. Depending on the month, temperatures hover in the 60s-80s during the day, which makes it great for taking a walk, biking, hiking, beach combing or even fishing along the coastline. The cool, crisp air of a Tybee Island winter is invigorating!
Smaller Crowds. Winter in Tybee Island means smaller crowds. Summer is fun….but it can get crowded. Doesn’t everyone dream of spending time on a secluded beach? During the winter, the crowds clear out, giving you time to have the beach to yourself. Same for some of our great Tybee Island restaurants, too. You won’t have a wait for a table, but you’ll enjoy the same, delicious seafood dishes and gorgeous views.
Winter Events. The fourth and maybe most underrated thing about Tybee Island in the winter is that there are still plenty of events taking place. There’s New Year’s Eve fireworks on Dec. 31, a Polar Bear Plunge on Jan. 1, Mardi Gras parades and festivities on March 2 and more. That’s right! Mardi Gras doesn’t just take place in New Orleans, Louisiana! Join us in Tybee Island for a fun, family-friendly Carnival season.
