The Golden Isles are inviting you and your family for a magical experience during the upcoming fall break. Your kids are probably already dreaming up ways they will be enjoying their days off from school. Help your family enjoy a vacation they will never forget by making the trek to St. Simons Island! Here are some family-friendly activities to plan for during your St Simons Island vacation:
Play at Neptune Park
Perhaps one of the most popular parks on St. Simons Island is Neptune Park. This enjoyable space features everything that makes a park great: play structures, swings, picnic areas, and more. But what really makes Neptune Park stand out among the rest is the adjacent mini golf course and splash park. The fall temperatures in St. Simons Island are still very much enjoyable, so the kids will love jumping in the fountains and swimming areas. Kids of all ages will find something they enjoy at Neptune Park.
Climb the St. Simons Island Lighthouse
St. Simons Island was best known in the 1800s as a maritime port where the still standing lighthouse would guide ships along their long journeys. The St. Simons Island Lighthouse may not operate anymore but it is still available for tours. Take a trek up the winding structure and peek out from five different levels of windows. The climb up can be steep, so make sure to plan ahead if anyone in the family is currently injured or has mobility issues. Once you make it to the top you will have unprecedented views of our beautiful island from all angles.
Hang Out at Pier Village
One of the busiest spots on the island where you can see locals and tourists mingle is Pier Village. This fantastic outdoor area features some of the best restaurants and shops on St. Simons Island. You can find the perfect souvenir to take home or dine in on delicious seafood and other cuisine for lunch or dinner. Once you are done walking around, make sure to head out onto the pier where you can simply relax or try your hand at reeling in a whopper of a fish. Local rental shops make it easy to find everything you need to enjoy some fishing.
