Some people vacation, others get away.
Uncover a winter haven just under five hours south of Atlanta. In the Golden Isles, average temperatures during the winter months are in the 60s, making a sunny afternoon walk on pet-friendly beaches an ideal activity. Biking and hiking are other popular things to do, especially when you're in search of the St. Simons Tree Spirits or Jekyll Island's Island Treasures. And when you've had a day full of exploring or a day full of relaxing, head to one of many local restaurants for authentic flavors of the coast.
Comprised of four natural barrier islands, St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island, each of the Golden Isles has its own charisma and personality for you to discover, and all are complemented by the mainland historic city of Brunswick.
