Tybee Gives Free Parking for the Holidays

Category: Hospitality & Tourism

12/07/2009 - The City of Tybee Island is promoting island businesses this holiday season by doing away with all parking fees on the island, beginning Thursday, Nov. 26 and ending Thursday, Dec. 31. All parking, whether controlled by meters or Pay-and-Display stations scattered on the island, will be free during this period. Parking enforcement will still take place for No Parking zones, disabled parking areas, loading zones and the like.

Free parking is just one of the enticements to draw visitors to Tybee and to keep residents shopping locally this holiday season.

The City's Better Hometown Initiative has partnered with island businesses and organizations to plan a number of activities, all detailed at the Tybee for the Holidays Web site, www.tybeefortheholidays.com.

The following weekend on Friday evening, the traditional "Lights on for Tybee" kicks the season into high gear for the island, with the tree lighting, St. Michael's Choir, "best decorating' awards given by the Tybee Beautification Association and performances by members of Gretchen Greene School of Dance. Mayor Jason Buelterman will start the ceremonies.

According to the mayor, "Doing your shopping on Tybee is not only good for our local business community, it is a very enjoyable and relaxing experience to stroll around the island looking for gifts for your friends and loved ones.." Festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Tybee merchants and eateries will be providing specials to shoppers throughout the holiday season, and many more events are planned for the month of December, including hotel deals for revelers who come to the island for the New Year’s Eve fireworks display and elect to stay off the roads for the evening.
