September 22nd marks the official start of fall, a season defined by cooler weather, fun festivals and the onset of the holiday season. There are so many things to love about fall especially here in the south. The forests are simply stunning with leaves turning amber and vermillion. The air is cool and crisp, providing much needed relief from the summer’s heat and humidity. People begin to gather for fun festivities and holiday happenings. Simply put, it’s a truly special time of year. Tybee is great to visit anytime of the year, but fall presents some special travel-worthy opportunities. Here are four compelling reasons why you should visit Tybee during the fall.
- Great Weather
Tybee enjoys great weather year-round, but for those who can’t take the sweltering heat of summer, fall is a good time to visit this beautiful barrier isle. The weather usually remains warm well into the season, so there’s plenty of time for fun beach days that aren’t unbearably hot.
- Less Crowds
Fall marks the beginning of the off-season for many beach communities. People don’t flock to the beaches the way they do in spring and summer. So, if you plan your visit during the fall, you’ll get to enjoy the island without all the crowds. It’s an opportunity experience Tybee like the locals do, and to get to know some of them as well.
- Cheaper Rates
The off-season also means cheaper rates on Tybee hotels, B&Bs and rentals. Plan your trip and visit Tybee during the fall to save significantly on lodging. Look out for snowbird specials and other off-season promotions to get the most out of your visit. You can enjoy the coast at a fraction of the cost during the fall.
- Fun Fests
The fall season is host to lots of fun festivals and activities on Tybee and nearby in Savannah. In October alone, you can look forward to the Tybee Island Pirate Festival, the Savannah Greek Festival, the Tybee ICE Hot Rod & Classic Car Show and the Vampire Ball. Check our event calendar to see what’s happening when so you can plan your trip accordingly.
Again, anytime of year is a great time to visit Tybee, but there’s really something special about visiting during the fall. Keep these reasons in mind as you plan your visit, and prepare to enjoy your stay. We hope to see you on the island soon!
