Located just a few short minutes east of Savannah, GA, Tybee Island may not be such a secret to those in the southeast. Tybee Island offers some beautiful beaches and resort hotels and gives you the feeling of those old 50’s and 60’s beach towns. While there, you can catch one of Savannah’s famous ghost tours or catch the casino gambling boat that takes you out and let you spend the kid’s college tuition.” 

Make sure you read the entire article to learn more about all five of the Top Hidden Beaches over at Yahoo! I agree…I had no idea we were such a secret. Well, if we were, the secret is definitely out now! These accolades are huge honors to have, but of course, they come as no surprise to those of us who live here.
