We had a group of students on Jekyll Island. We took them to Summer Waves on the last day of our trip. They loved the water slides and the lazy river!

Our family has a lot of fun at Summer Waves. The kids stay entertained for hours. Our youngest really enjoys the area for smaller children. I like the lazy river - something for everyone!
