Tourists to New York City have a tall task ahead of them when picking and choosing their sightseeing destinations. The Empire State building is always at the top of the list but a great tip for getting a spectacular view of this magnificent 102 story building is to look at it from the Top of the Rock.
Rockefeller Center is located on 5th Avenue between 48th and 51st streets. Visitors will have a 360-degree view of the city from the 67th, 69th, and 70th floor observations decks.

If you enjoy one you will likely enjoy the other. Since walking is the preferred choice of transportation for visitors , it’s a quick 20-minutes between the two.

Guaranteed fun…Happy travels …I love NY…so much to do…good pizza..new shoes

This cozy oceanside community located just east of Savannah Georgia offers something for all ages.  With a wide variety of lodging options, including hotels, timeshare resorts, privately owned beach cottages, oceanview homes, creekside properties and campgrounds. The Coastal colors throughout the community, the salt air and the light surf all says it’s time to relax.

 

The scenic marsh drive on US highway 80 from Savannah to the island offers a peak of the wildlife that makes the marsh and rivers their home. Upon entering the island you will find a great variety of services available so don’t worry if you forgot something at home.

Within minutes you will sense the casual charm and the southern hospitality of this coastal Georgia barrier island.

During your stay, besides the lovely 5 miles of Public beach access, there is so much to do.

Here are a few tips:

The Lighthouse and Light Station

Fort Screven and the Tybee Island Museum

 

Tybee Island Pier & Pavillion-there is no entry fee, but a fishing license is required to fish

Spend a day touring Savannah

My overall review for Tybee Island as a vacation destination would be a YES!

The weather year round is mild, summers are hot and muggy, but you’ll have a beach breeze.
