South Georgia is known for having some of the best weather in the United States year round. Warm sunny days are never far, especially when you find yourself on St. Simons Island. Perfect for family vacations, you will want to spend more than a few days a year on our beaches, or exploring the rich American history surrounding the entire island.
Whether you are in the market for a new permanent home or simply looking for a home away from home, check out these activities that will have you wishing you could stay on St. Simons year round!
1. American History
St. Simons Island celebrates a history that can be traced to the British occupation of the “New World”. As a part of the original 13 colonies, Georgia (and specifically St. Simon) proudly celebrate and preserve a heritage hundreds of years old. American history enthusiasts will love spending their days exploring the beautiful architecture of churches like the Christ Church Frederica, built in 1736.
One of the first churches built in Georgia, the Christ Church is just as beautiful now as it was in the 18th century. Or let the St. Simons Lighthouse, built in 1872, guide you safely to the shore, as this still operational lighthouse/museum combo reminisces on days of yore.
Explore these sites and many more on your own, or join a trolley tour of the island. We guarantee that once will not be enough to absorb the stories these sites have to tell.
2. Outdoor Leisure
Beautiful weather year round, combined with a plethora of environments on St. Simons Island means that you can spend as much time outside as you could ever desire. Spend countless weekends on the beach flying kites, or kayaking on the water. Take the whole family out for an entire day of biking over 30 miles of bike paths on the island- don’t worry, you don’t have to do it all in one day! No bikes? No problem, you can rent bikes anytime!
Take a treasure hunt with the family to locate the mysterious spirit trees around the island- how many can you find? With so many options to explore, there is never a dull moment on St. Simons!
3. Fun for the whole Family
If the weather is getting a bit to warm, take the kids to cool off at the Neptune Park and Fun Zone Water Park. Kids (and grown ups) of all ages will love splashing in the pool or slipping down the water slide. Once you’ve cooled off, fit in a full 18 on our putt-putt golf course, catch some air on the swing set in the park, or just grab a bite to eat at our fully stocked concession stand. The pool and fun areas are open year round, so grab your towels and come on down!
