Make the most of the fall season and book a spooky vacation getaway to the beautiful destination of St. Simons Island. Autumn is one of the best times during the year to visit St. Simons Island thanks to cooler temperatures and the disappearance of summer crowds. Here are some upcoming St Simons Island events for Halloween for you and your family to enjoy on St. Simons Island:
Ghost Walk of St. Simons
While St. Simons Island has an inviting appeal to it, there is a frightening history to be learned about its dark beginnings! All joking aside, St. Simons Island does have a history of mystery, fright, and terror, though it is completely family friendly. Each year the Ghost Walk of St. Simons takes place from August through the end of October for guided walks down the dark streets at night. Your guide will provide you with a 90-minute tour full of interesting facts that starts from Pier Village. Flashlights are encouraged so you can see all the sights along the way. Tickets start at $14 for adults and $7 for children ages 12 and younger.
Turtleween at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center
One of the most popular Halloween events on the Golden Isles each year is Turtleween, happening at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. This popular aquatic attraction can be found on Jekyll Island just a short ferry ride away. This Halloween event is perfect for children of all ages and included with regular admission into the park. Come experience a thrilling educational experience along with a costume contest with plenty of prizes.
Movie on the Green – Halloween Edition
Catch one of the funniest yet spooky family movies that have come out recently, The House with a Clock in Its Walls, at Movie on the Green. Jekyll Island hosts a special movie screening every month with October being Halloween themed, of course. Make sure to bring your kids in their best costumes so they can trick or treat through the Beach Village shops from 6:00pm to 7:00pm before the show.
