quote"End your swing around the state with a leisurely trip south from Savannah to Georgia's Golden Isles, a string of lush subtropical barrier islands that lies just off the coast. Some are wildlife refuges but the developed islands of Jekyll, St. Simons and Sea Islands are accessible via bridges and offer superb beaches, great golf, and a wide range of accommodations. Theses sandy shores are also the perfect spot to unfold your beach chair, gaze out at the blue Atlantic, and reflect on your journey through Georgia..."
- Angela Wibking, Travel America, Evanston IL, Dec/03-Jan 04

"The unspoiled coastal island, where gentle breezes, white sandy beaches, and glorious sunny days seem endless, is pleasantly stuck in a time warp. It's an enigma of compelling contrasts and perfect harmony, effortlessly blending the old and new, cherished history and modern comforts, grand surroundings and simple pleasures, energizing sports and unadulterated relaxation."
- Lynn Jeter, 'The Legacy of Jekyll Island', South Magazine


St. Simon's Island is the gem of Georgia's Golden Isles. Enjoy 234 holes of golf, tennis, horseback riding on the beach, sport fishing, and scuba diving in waters with 100-foot visibility, crabbing from the pier, cinemas. Kids love the old fashioned miniature golf, and ice cream shops at the pier, shelling and water-skiing, Shopping of all sorts, from unique upscale boutique shops to outlet malls and warehouses full of antiques! St. Simons Islands is home to many local artists and their galleries. Kayaking, bicycling (Click for bicycle map), floating, sailing, the beach, fantastic dining, St. Simons Island has something for everyone!

Want to eat out? Of course there are a few fast food favorites, but be sure to try some of the small mom and pop sandwich shops too. They ooze southern hospitality and offer delicious local specialties. Your biggest dilemma might be deciding on which restaurant to visit for dinner. You will find some of the finest gourmet restaurants in the southeast right at your fingertips. After dinner you might want to dance or hear some live music. There are at least six local venues in the area offering music for all ages and tastes. Head out and enjoy a local band, singer or perhaps even karaoke. The prices are surprisingly reasonable.

St. Simon's Lighthouse

Visit British Colonial era Fort Frederica, climb the steps for the spectacular views from the top of the St. Simons Lighthouse, visit Bloody Marsh (site of the last Spanish invasion of Georgia), and take your camera and/or easel to lovely Christ Church at Frederica (so scenic and serene that it is probably the second most “painted” location in all of Georgia, our Lighthouse being the first!). Visit the Millionaires Village with former winter homes of the Rockefeller's, Morgan's, Astor's, Vanderbilt's etc.

There are great day trips near by. An hour south will put you in Jacksonville with all the amenities you would expect in a big city, an hour north takes you to Savannah with its lovely squares and one of the largest and most successful historical preservation districts in the nation.

Less than an hour west will find you to the Waycross and the Okefenokee Swamp (pack a lunch and rent a canoe). Cumberland Island National Seashore is only 30 minutes south. For the best seafood restaurants withviews of the water and marshes, McIntosh County is 30 minutes north.
