The Golden Isles

The Golden Isles is the area that includes Brunswick and the islands of Jekyll, St. Simons, and several smaller islands.

Brunswick

General James Oglethorpe laid out its streets and squares in 1771. George Washington proclaimed it one of the five original ports of entry for the Colonies in 1789. Today, Brunswick’s rich sense of history shines in business and pleasure. A nurturing revitalization and restoration program for the state’s second highest concentration of historic structures. A bustling waterfront, home to shrimp boats, cruise lines, casino ships, marina, and vessels from around the world. The charms of Old Town Brunswick with its Victorian commercial buildings, grand residential homes, historic banquet and reception facilities, and delightful bed and breakfast inns. Streets of quaint shops, restaurants, art galleries and antique dealers. Cultural and historic festivals, performances and special events. And an atmosphere that’s warm and welcoming for residents and visitors alike.

Jekyll Island

Jekyll Island is a barrier island on Georgia’s coast – midway between Jacksonville, Fla. and Savannah, Ga. Accessible by car just minutes from I-95, Jekyll Island offers a variety of amenities, including 10 miles of beach, four golf courses, a 250-acre Historic Landmark District, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, Summer Waves Water Park, tennis center, an array of lodging options including hotels, cottages and campgrounds. Owned by the State of Georgia, and managed by the Jekyll Island State Park Authority, Jekyll Island has had development limited to just 35 percent of its available land area. This unique aspect of Jekyll Island serves to preserve the critical barrier island ecosystem, and provide guests with a unique escape from the crowds and complications of other beach resort destinations.

St. Simons Island

St. Simons Island captivates visitors with remarkable beauty and fascinating history. Lovely beaches, 99 holes of golf, acres of tennis courts, miles of bike trails, and countless shops and restaurants. Historic remnants of bygone eras, including the St. Simons Island Lighthouse (a working lighthouse in operation since 1872) the Bloody Marsh, Fort Frederica National Monument, historic Christ Church, and the sites of antebellum plantations dot the Island. Treasures are found ‘round every bend on this, the largest of the Golden Isles.
