We stayed on St. Simon Island and visited Jekyll Island for the day. Loved it. I would stay here next time. Plenty to do and less crowded. Nicer places to eat.

A wonderful beautiful location. See the historic Jekyll Island club and the "cottages" then take the family on a bike ride or go to the beach.

Take your time on Jekyll and read the engraved signs and markers. The area is rich with history. A little research will enlighten you about the vast wealth that was once represented in the Jekyll Cottage families. Crane, Rockefeller, Morton, etc.

We spent part of the day just wandering around the amazing " cottages" taking photos and soaking in the history. There are little shops to stop in too. Saw some very unique local artistry. Definitely go and see!

Walking around and seeing sights, absolutely! They do have some shops, but I'm not sure about lunch. They have some snack shops, but no actual restaurant.
