The editors of Southern Living magazine recently named the seaside town of Tybee Island, Ga., one of the top Southern beach towns, calling it the “All American Hamlet.” With a population of 2,990, Tybee is about 30 minutes from Savannah and an easy drive from Atlanta.
If you want to see how Tybee rolls, rent a pastel beach cruiser from Fat Tire Bike Rentals. It comes with a cupholder on the handlebars for your (legal) frosty beer, which likely won’t spill, so flat is the land and scarce are the cars. You’ll need just one gear to cruise at the pace of this classic, family-friendly island. ~Southern Living
