This Island-Hopping Experience Is A Weekend Adventure To Some Of Georgia’s Best Barrier Islands
While we might not have the Caribbean islands in such close proximity like Florida does, Georgia does have its own set of islands that are worth taking a weekend to explore. Georgia’s barrier islands are some of the most beautiful vacation destinations in the entire state. With sandy beaches, soft breezes, and tons of varied wildlife, each of these barrier islands offers a little something different. Barrier islands are found along the entire eastern seaboard of the United States, and Georgia has quite a few that people will come from all over to explore. We’ll start this island-hopping adventure from north to south, but really wherever you want to begin is fine, too. Ready for a picture-perfect weekend adventure?
Note: not all of Georgia’s barrier islands are open to the public. For instance, St. Catherine’s Island and Wolf Island do not allow public access.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
