Planning Your St. Simons Island Vacation

As one of the most gorgeous islands off the Georgia coast, St. Simons Island has plenty of unique experiences waiting for you. Putting together a vacation itinerary can be a tall order sometimes, especially if you’re going somewhere with a lot of appealing attractions, and if you’re someone who loves the beach or getting in touch with nature then you’re definitely going to have plenty of choices to make during your St. Simons vacation.

Getting Around

Coordinating things like transportation between all of your planned activities can be tough, especially if you’d like to visit multiple islands in the area. Aside from Little St. Simons Island, which is only accessible by ferry, all of the Golden Isles are accessible by car. If you’re trying to make the rounds, it’s highly recommended that you secure your own rental so you can make it around on your own time.

If you’re just staying local on St. Simons itself, then you won’t necessarily need your own car, as most of the island is fairly compact and can be traversed on foot. Other common methods of travel are golf carts and bikes.

Schedule a Golf Trip

If you’re an avid golfer or just somebody who enjoys it as a hobby, St. Simons Island has four different scenic courses that are built into the natural landscape of ocean dunes and massive oak trees. If you’re in town for long enough to hit all of the courses, make sure you schedule your tee times so you can fit in as many games as you like into your St Simons Island vacation.

Plan a Trip to the Preserves

The Golden Isles have several different preserves that are generously kept in their natural state by organizations and donors dedicated to keeping the charm of the islands intact. Cannon’s Point Preserve is located on the north end of the island and is 600 acres of well-preserved land with a couple of old developments left on it. Wildlife observers will love visiting this location but be sure to dress in appropriate clothing with good coverage and use bug spray to keep yourself safe.

Brunswick, Jekyll Island, and Little St. Simons Island all have their own unique offerings in addition to St. Simons itself, and a little research goes a long way. You can definitely make several day trips just by exploring the great outdoors.

The Golden Isles Await

Whatever your St Simons vacation plans wind up being, you’ll rest easy knowing the comfort of home is always waiting for you at the end of the day. Unwind in one of our vacation rentals after a long day of outings and come see all that the Georgia coast has to offer.
