article imagePhoto Essay: Tybee Island, where summer lasts all year long Special

By Kay Mathews     Dec 2, 2012 in Travel
Tybee Island - It's early December and there are sunny skies over, and temperatures in the seventies on, the beautiful coastal Georgia town of Tybee Island.
Tybee Island is one of eight U.S. islands "where summer lasts all year long," according to Budget Travel.
With its "average highs of 61/67 in February/March," Budget Travel describes Tybee Island as a less-expensive travel destination with "five miles of sugary beaches fringed by sea oats."
Year round, there are plenty of things to see and do on Tybee Island, including visiting the lighthouse, viewing huge cargo ships, bird watching, and fishing. And, of course, when it's too cold to swim in the ocean, building sand castles is always fun.
As Budget Travel notes, the Tybee Island lighthouse is "picture-perfect enough to make it onto a postage stamp." Officially called the "Tybee Island Light Station," it "has been guiding mariners safe entrance into the Savannah River for over 270 years."
