The Tybee Seafood Festival takes place on the Tybee Pier Saturday, May 7, 2011. It’s a good excuse for guests of our Savannah Vacation Villas to visit Tybee Island, which is about 20 minutes from Savannah’s historic downtown.

The Tybee Seafood Festival features lots of fresh seafood, prepared by some of the island’s finest chefs and caterers. Enjoy live music as you eat, surprise fun performances, and people watching.

In conjunction with the festival, Mega Midway Carnival will be open from May 4 – May 8, 2011, not far from the Tybee Pier. Daredevils will be drawn to rides like Spin Out, while others will simply enjoy the view from the Ferris Wheel.

Some guests of our Savannah Vacation Villas never make it to Tybee Island; there is, after all, plenty to do in historic Savannah. Yet Tybee Island is an interesting and lovely place, well worth a visit. The Tybee Seafood Festival is as good a reason as any to head to Tybee Island.
