Miley Cyrus comes to Ocean Plaza Beach Resort
2009 was the year Hollywood discovered Tybee Island and the Ocean Plaza Beach Resort. Walt Disney Pictures filmed on Tybee Island a movie drama titled â€śThe Last Songâ€ť starring teenage superstar Miley Cyrus, who is also known to thousands of loving fans as Hannah Montana. Kelly Preston and Greg Kinnear played Mileyâ€™s parents in the movie. The stars were frequently spotted at Ocean Plaza.
For several months Tybee Island saw a surge in business activity due to the publicity, spectators, movie extras, news media and paparazzi, cast and crew, and logistical dining and parking requirements brought by the filming of Mileyâ€™s movie. The Ocean Plaza Beach Resort had the unique privilege of hosting the movieâ€™s base camp and staging area.
