St. Simons Island Christmas Fun for the Entire Family
When a Christmas celebration just wouldn’t be complete without the sparkle of holiday lights, be sure to make time for a trolley trip that takes guests around town to see the best of the glittering additions. Hosted by Lighthouse Trolleys, this annual Fendig Family Christmas tour tradition lasts 90 minutes and is offered on St. Simons Island between December 13th and December 24th. If you’re in town for the entire month of December and looking to get some last-minute shopping in, be sure to swing by the Mistletoe Market December 1st and 2nd at Postell Park.

Beyond the Holiday Fun
While a trip to St. Simons Island over Christmas is bound to bring with it an itinerary packed with holiday-specific excursions, this is a vacation destination that deserves to be explored anytime you’re here to enjoy it. To that end, be sure to add a few traditional stops along the way as well to make sure you’re making the most of every minute of your getaway.
When you’re in the mood to step back in time and can’t wait to pursue some of those stories that have long made up the history of St. Simons Island, a stop at Fort Frederica is definitely a must. This iconic and historical fort is located on the northern end of St. Simons Island and is a great place to enjoy an insight into what life was like here during the 1700s. Equally enjoyable would be a stop at Christ Episcopal Church where the exterior façade is charming and inviting while the fact that this church holds the title as the second largest Episcopal Church in Georgia makes it well worth a visit full of historical intrigue.
When you find that your plans for the day require extra fueling up, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy breakfast at Echo. This popular dining spot on the island is known and loved for their extensive breakfast and brunch menu. While everything on the list is sure to delight, the fruits and yogurt parfaits come highly recommended.
