How to plan the perfect Labor Day weekend on Tybee Island.

For many people, Labor Day weekend is considered the unofficial last weekend of Summer. This three day weekend is also another excuse to plan a  trip to the beach!

One of the biggest celebrations on the Georgia coast happens right here on Tybee Island.

Planning your holiday weekend should be easy, so we want to pitch in and share our tips on how to make the most of your Tybee Labor Day weekend.

#1. Book A Beach Home Rental!

Are you spending the weekend with just a few friends or inviting the whole family? Chances are, Oceanfront Cottage Rentals will have the perfect vacation rental home to offer you. Check out the availability here or contact a Vacation planner now. 912-786-0054 Availability will not last long!

#2. You’re going to need groceries!

A Labor Day weekend is not complete without firing up the grill. Make sure you have everything you need to prepare snacks and meals throughout the weekend by visiting one of the local grocery stores. If you would prefer to skip the lines, Tybee Island’s IGA also offers Grocery delivery!

#3. Rent beach equipment and bikes!

One of the many great things about Tybee is that you can get everywhere by bike. Tim’s Beach Gear and Burke’s Beach Gear rentals offer bike and beach gear rentals. They will also deliver and set up your gear.

#4. Put on your dancing shoes! 

That’s right, grab your dancing shoes (or flip flops will do). There will be a live band performing on the Tybee Pier and Pavillion. The performances will include covers of beach music that the whole family will recognize.

#5. Plan to take lots of pictures!

Make sure your phone is charged because you are going to want to capture all the memories of this weekend. You’ll definitely want to plan on taking pictures under the fireworks display that will take place on Tybee’s south beach.

Book Directly with Oceanfront Cottage Rentals and Save! #bookdirect

Did you know that you could save up to 20% on your next vacation? Over the past several years Online Travel Agents masked with names like HomeAway, VRBO, AirBnB and much more have increased their “convenience fee”. This fee is basically a fee to use their site. The majority of the homes listed are actually managed by a Vacation Rental Company.

Imagine this…..

So let’s say you have already booked through one of these Online Travel Agents. Who do you call when the Air Conditioner does not work in your home? Who do you call when you need a recommendation for the best pizza in town? What do you do when your hot tub stops working? What about if half of the house does not have power? Who do you call if you have a question about how to use a fireplace?

Definitely not the Online Travel Agent that you submitted your Reservation request through. Their “Customer support” is just a call center somewhere.

Now, Imagine this…

You call Oceanfront Cottage Rentals and speak to a vacation expert. You ask questions about a few homes and then they email you a few more options. Then you call to make your reservation…and find out we are running a special during your vacation week! You save hundreds of dollars! You have a peace of mind knowing that when you arrive you have a 24 local staff to answer your questions and guide you through your vacation experience!

I bet you can think of a few other ways to spend 100’s of dollars, right?

However you decide to plan your Tybee Vacation, just know that with Oceanfront Cottage Rentals…you matter! #bookdirect
