    I’ve been longing to have my first Tybee Island vacation and I’m glad that they are slowing going back to business. I hope to visit after this pandemic because safety of everyone is still my top priority. Right now, I’m just reading https://visittybee.com to know more about the island.

    By what authority does the Tybee Island government prohibit smoking on the beach that is public property, owned by the federal government, from the high water mark out to sea? Tybee has no jurisdiction.
