A bit about St. Simons Island: Moss-draped oaks line the winding island roads, developing a picture perfect image worthy of a Faulkner narrative. The villages in the island offer a distinctive and charming selection of stores, plus a number of restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual outdoor fare. Visitors and residents alike appreciate engaging in a bit outdoor recreation at Neptune Park and its Fun Zone, which includes a fishing pier, miniature golf and a public pool for a quick cooling down.
St. Simons Island is dotted with special historic sites and attractions, from the St. Simons Lighthouse Museum–a working lighthouse built in 1872–to the Bloody Marsh Battle Site, where, in July 1742, British and Scottish soldiers protecting colonial Georgia conquered a larger Spanish force in a conflict that helped end Spanish incursions outside Florida. Fort Frederica National Monument, which preserves archaeological remnants of the neighborhood British colony and its particular defense against Spain, and historic Christ Church, Frederica–one of the oldest churches in Georgia, with worship held constantly since 1736–are situated on the island’s north end. Toward the southern tip, the Maritime Center, in the restored U.S. Coast Guard Station, provides fascinating glimpses of the region’s natural development, while emphasizing some of its maritime and military history.
