According to one travel publication, one of the best beaches in the United States belongs to the Peach State.
In a recent rundown of its picks for the best beaches in the country to visit, Travel & Leisure listed North Beach on Tybee Island in Georgia among their selections. Other picks included Poipu Beach in Kauai, Hawaii; Coronado Beach in San Diego; Clearwater Beach in Florida; Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina; and Coney Island Beach in Brooklyn, New York.
Also among the picks was Coligny Beach Park on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina – a quick hour’s drive, give or take, from neighboring Savannah, Georgia.
According to Travel & Leisure, North Beach makes the cut because it’s “a peaceful, family-friendly spot frequented by locals,” adding that “the stunning 360-degree views from the top of the historical Tybee Island Lighthouse are well worth the climb, especially during sunrise and sunset.”
