This Island Off The Coast Of Georgia Is One Of The Most Magical Spots In The Country
Off the coast of Georgia awaits an island completely protected by its own state park. This treasure trove of sand dunes, hardwood forest, and shoreline was once the vacation spot of the world’s wealthiest business tycoons, and today, still remains one of the most unique spots in the country. Here’s more on Jekyll Island:
Welcome to Jekyll Island, a gorgeous area comprised of thousands of acres of protected land, historic mansions, sandy beaches, and delicious restaurants for every budget.
In 1886, the island was purchased by the Jekyll Island Club and consequently became one of the most exclusive islands in the world, visited by families such as the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts.
Fortunately, today, this island is way more accessible to those who aren't the elite. Visitors from around the world are invited to explore this unique island community.
In fact, only one-third of the island is allotted for commercial purposes, meaning there are endless pristine shorelines to discover. And with proximity to the coast comes delicious seafood. Be sure to try local favorites such as Love Shack BBQ Shrimp and Doc's Snap Shop.
So if your ideal vacation involves Spanish moss, Live Oak trees, breathtaking sunrises, and some of the most underrated sea food in the country, you'll fall in love with what this tiny Georgia island has to offer.
