Savannah’s coastal locale makes it a great place to road trip from as the journey will include lots of watery vistas. Tybee Island is the ideal day trip, at only 20 minutes from downtown Savannah but with plenty of entertainment to fill a day. Kick things off with a diner-style, funky breakfast at The Breakfast Club, then rent kayaks to check out pristine Little Tybee. Add a leisurely bike ride that winds throughout the island and have dinner overlooking the ocean before heading to Sting Ray's or Tybee Island Social Club for live music.
Other nearby choices? St. Simons and the other Golden Isles are peaceful and quaint, making them a nice respite for a day. Or consider Hilton Head Island, about 45 minutes away and with a dog friendly beach (at times) and lots of premier golf courses. A few celebrity chefs also have restaurants there, including Robert Irvine and Orchid.
