24-31 March 2018

We have enjoyed VA Beach/OBX beaches during the summer forever. Recently retired,we spent four days in SSI early February 2017. We loved SSI and plan to share with our adult children and grandchildren during their Spring Break and a special year for many reasons for our family.

We like the Coastal Cottage rentals because they offer a heated pool. Will the heated pool be fine for younger ones at that time? They need to get wet. CC easy walk to beach, plus fine low and high tides. We walked that area and it was unique. Feel free to stop me when I am wrong. Is it possible to take a ferry from SSI/Jekyll to Cumberland? Lady Jane Shrimp daily from? Putt Putt open year round? Market for seafood? City Market but isn't it far? Sons enjoy bike rides should they rent for that area?

City Market is great.

Lady Jane is docked on the mainline between SSI and Jekyll Island.

No shuttle to Cumberland. You may be able to find a private boat to take you, if they are licensed to do so. The ferry leaves from St Marys, GA.

If you rent bikes, definitely ride around Jekyll Island. Much less busy than SSI and more 'natural".

The marsh kayak tour leaving from the 4H center on Jekyll is great.

OMR gave great answers as usual. Alternative to City Market in Brunswick (15 minute drive) is St. Simons Seafood on Demere Road over by the Winn-Dixie shopping center. Coast Cottages is a great complex. Air temps at the end of March should be okay for the pool but you never know for positive. Have always found that the kids can tolerate lower temperatures than adults even if their lips are blue and they are shivering they will claim they are not cold. Nice bike trails on SSI but have to be aware of traffic crossing streets. Enjoy your visit.

Your family will love Coastal Cottages. I am assuming you have a big family because those houses are large. sleeping about 12 people or more. Look at Lady Jane website: www.shrimpcruise.com, and the Glynn County website: www.glynncounty.org for recreation at Neptune Park which has the putt putt golf course for times and dates.
