St. Simons Island features a variety of activities and of course delicious food that will make your Thanksgiving holiday one to never forget. Here is how to plan for your upcoming St Simons Thanksgiving:
Eat Out for Thanksgiving
Sure, it might be family tradition to cook up a feast at home for Thanksgiving, but you will be on a much-deserved holiday. Instead, check out one of the many local restaurants that serve up delicious meals around the Thanksgiving holiday. St. Simons Island is known for its incredible Georgian cuisine. Try out Barbara Jeans, a southern style eatery located in the Village which features delicious fried chicken, dumplings, Brunswick Stew (a Georgia favorite), peach cobbler and so much more. The King and Prince Golf Resort on the island features a holiday buffet that includes all of your favorites if you are in the mood for a more traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
The RSM Classic
The week of Thanksgiving will feature The RSM Classic, an annual PGA golf tournament sponsored by famed golfer Davis Love III. The Sea Island Golf Club will host this exciting event as top professional golfers will descend upon St. Simons Island from all over the world to participate. Come see some of your favorite professional golfers in person as you support the Special Olympics, The Boys and Girls Club, and other charities in need. The 2019 RSM Classic will take place from November 18-24 at The Sea Island Golf Club.
Tree Lighting Festival
With Thanksgiving complete, it will be the perfect time to look forward to your next holiday, Christmas. Just a few miles away from St. Simons Island is neighboring Jekyll Island, another part of the Golden Isles. Catch the Tree Lighting Festival held on the Friday after Thanksgiving as the great tree is lit up for all to see. It is easy to catch a charter to Jekyll Island and the event is absolutely free.
