Tybee Salutes Heroes
Join us in thanking our military men and women during this island-wide celebration. Active and retired military personnel are invited to bring their families for a relaxing weekend of activities on Tybee Island. Weekend highlights include family-friendly events at the American Legion and the Tybee Salutes Heroes Parade.
The parade begins at 1 p.m. Saturday, November 12 starting at the intersection of Butler Avenue and 14th Street and will continue north to Memorial Park (Fifth Street and Butler Avenue).
Various Tybee accommodations are offering special rates for the weekend. In addition to accommodations, several island restaurants, shops and attractions are also offering special discounts for military families. Simply ask for the “Military Discount” when shopping.
Organizers for the event hope to double the number of families from last year who were selected to stay on the island at no cost. For last year’s inaugural event, rental costs for 50 Tybee Island beach houses, cottages and condos were waived for those selected at participating lodging providers.
