Radiant in the Golden Isles
In the Golden Isles, sunshine bathes over its islands and port city, with glimmers of morning dew and whispers of a breeze. The warmth is radiant and soothes you.
Along the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL, lies a stretch of land that is like no other. With four beautiful barrier islands, St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island and Little St. Simons Island, and a historic port city, Brunswick, the Golden Isles of Georgia welcomes you to streets lined with centuries-old oak trees draped with Spanish moss and miles of sun-drenched beaches.
Pristine stretches of marshes define the breathtaking landscape and create the appearance of a continuous stretch of land reaching out to the barrier islands. Each of the five unique locations offers a memorable setting, a variety of activities, and an inherent tranquility.
While the warmer months bring long, lazy beach days and dips in the nearest pool, sunny skies and comfortable temperatures year-round mean the spirit of summer lingers on. With pleasant springtime weather, alfresco dining, wildlife exploration and friendly rounds of golf are blissfully accessible, and whether you're hopping from island to island or relaxing in your favorite spot, the Golden Isles is sure to win you over.
