Nothing says summertime more than a fun-filled day on Tybee Island. But what if you have only one day to spend on Tybee with some friends or the family? How do you decide what to do? We’ve got you covered. So pack up your car, pick up some roadside boiled peanuts, and make your way to one of the most popular beaches in the Coastal South. Enjoy miles of beaches, historic forts, lighthouses, and some of the absolute best seafood on the East Coast. Here are a few of our tips on how to spend your day at Tybee!
Located between Savannah and Tybee Island, Fort Pulaski is known for being the site of a military experiment where the Union Army tested a rifle cannon against the fort walls forcing the Confederate garrison to surrender. Its rich history and excellent maintenance makes Fort Pulaski an ideal stop on the way to the beach. Fort Pulaski National Monument is open daily from 9am to 5pm. This is a great place to go with the whole family, and an opportunity to learn a little about America’s past.

It’s no secret that we love Southern made products. Here are three that we featured in our 50th issue.
Nothing signals the fact that you are in the South and it is darn-well time to relax better than the sight of a hammock hanging on the porch or between a pair of trees. Since 1889, Pawley’s Island Rope Hammocks has set the standard for hammocks. Riverboat captain Joshua John Ward ferried rice around coastal Georgetown, South Carolina and was frustrated by sleeping on grass-filled mattresses that conducted too much heat. Sailors’ hammocks were cramped and hard to get into and out of. Cap’n Josh set out to improve the situation by using ropes tied with large openings in a lattice-patterned weave for better circulation. The slats at each end made them easy to get into and out of, making the Pawley’s Island Hammock the most classical and comfortable, even today.
