Saint Simons Island Offers a Golden Opportunity

Posted May 7, 2010 by Jaclyn Liechti

Saint Simons Island St. Simons Island is the largest of what are known as the Golden Isles, located off the coast of Georgia. When Spanish explorers landed more than 400 years ago they expected to find gold, but what they discovered instead was a wealth of natural beauty. On St. Simons, visitors can explore a working historical lighthouse or battlefields from the War of Jenkins’ Ear, or simply relax on the public beaches. Temperatures really heat up in the summer, but springtime provides warm weather and plenty of activities for families on vacation.

Stay
Village Inn & Pub: After a long day exploring the island, you can relax at the Village Inn & Pub, a 1930s renovated and expanded beach cottage. At the pub, you can relax in front of the original stone fireplace with a pint of your favorite beer, or sample one of the many martinis offered. After a nightcap, check in to one of the 28 guest rooms named for St. Simons Island’s historic figures. In the morning, you can eat a complimentary breakfast on the sun porch and admire the oak trees and pool. Off season weekday rates start at $120 per night.
