One thing’s for sure. A visit to Tybee Island includes lots of cups. There are cups that cup and cups that runneth over. There are things that should be cupped, but alas, some folks just like to let it all hang out. A great way to make sure you enjoy your stay is the To-Go Cup!
Now, everybody knows that good old sweet tea is the champagne of the South, but what would a trip to the beach be without margaritas, daiquiris, fuzzy navels, salty dogs or a frosty cold one straight from the tap? Luckily, Tybee Island allows individuals to possess alcohol outdoors as long as it is in a plastic container — absolutely no glass. So, if you would like to take a midnight stroll on the beach with some wine, go right ahead. Just pour it in a cup before you go.
Of course, Tybee Island is a very walkable town, so absolutely do not drink and drive. Bar closing times differ from bar to bar, but by law they must close by 3 am. Always remember to drink responsibly while you’re on Tybee Time.
We’ve got another fun-filled weekend planned for you, so get ready to walk, run, bike and swim and enjoy our laid back style. First, the 15th Annual Tybee Island Tour Of Homes is a great way to enjoy both contemporary and historic architectural styles around the island. Then, really get into our island beat with the Trybee Island Sprint. The rest of your stay is at your leisure and a great time to practice your To-Go Cup grip.
Personally, I’m on the hunt for To-Go Cups in just the right shades of pink, lime green, aqua and a pretty, girly yellow. I’m not opposed to polka dots or tastefully done pattens in pastels, so do let me know if you see anything that will bring even more Tybee Joy to my day. Of course, the proof is in how well they accessorize my ensembles, so come on over and bring some with you!
Try this Trybee Island Sprint triathlon to kick off your summer!
Join us this Sunday, June 10th, for an event to benefit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center! We’re going to swim, bike and run to show our support and you’re invited!
Swim: The swim portion will be a 750 meter ocean swim. Participants will swim out 50 meters, then turn parallel to the shore and swim with the current for 650 meters prior to swimming back into shore. The transition area is located just on the other side of the boardwalk and baby pools will be provided for rinsing the sand off your feet.
Bike: The bike is and out and back ride which is nearly completely flat. There is one hill which is the bridge off of Tybee Island. One mile after the bridge, participants will turn right into Fort Pulaski State Park, do a loop around the park and then head back to transition. The bike is full of beautiful marsh-scapes and coastal birds. The bike should prove to be VERY fast. Read the rest of this entry »
