Ok, I got a little lazy, back to the Savannah posts!
One day of our trip we went to Tybee Island. It's about a 20 minute drive from Historic Savannah.
Our first stop was the lighthouse. It was build in 1773 and is one of the most in tact light stations in the US. It was 178 steps to the top and boy was it HOT!
Across the street was Fort Screven. It was built in 1898 and served as America's coastal defense system until 1945.
