When you think of holidays to plan a vacation around, chances are St. Patrick’s Day is not at the top of your list. However, it should be, especially if you’re trying to figure out when to book your getaway with Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals. Our coastal Georgia vacation rentals are the ideal home base for anyone looking to check out all the St. Patrick’s Day fun in Savannah and Tybee Island.
Both Tybee Island and Savannah host parades filled with plenty of fun. Dates for the parades can vary each year, so check online for this year’s information. The Tybee Island event is the first parade of the season. It starts at 3 p.m. and travels from Tybee City Hall down Butler Avenue to Tybrisa Street.
The most anticipated event of the St. Patrick’s Day season here is the annual Savannah parade. The sea of green travels from Gwinnett Street near Forsyth Park to the Historic District. While the parade starts around 10:15 a.m., roads begin to close well before that. To avoid the bottleneck of cars, we recommend utilizing the shuttles. For anyone looking to watch marching bands, floats, and dancers in style, check out the bleacher spots you can reserve.
