How does Tybee thank our heroes?

Lodging partners donate accommodations over Veteran’s Day weekend. Lodging is free, but each family will be charged a $125 cleaning fee. Each participating family is given a goody bag filled with gifts and discounts from Tybee Island retail businesses and restaurants. The weekend includes a Heroes Parade, a special dinner for families, and lots of free time to enjoy all the island has to offer. A limited number of scholarships will be available to cover the cost of the cleaning fee.

Where is Tybee Island located?

Tybee island is a 4-mile-long island, located just 15 miles from historic Savannah, Georgia. Our two dozen restaurants serving serving fresh-from-the-ocean seafood, three miles of public beach, outdoor watersports and fishing, and historic sites and shopping, make Tybee island the perfect destination.
