(Note to readers: I was a guest of the King and Prince Resort and my food, excursion and resort expenses were covered while on this press trip. My opinion remains my own.)
St. Simons Island, or SSI as the locals call it, is a beautiful piece of land off the coast of Georgia that offers something for pretty much everyone, whether you’re looking for the world’s most delicious shrimp and grits or trying to master a round of golf playing amongst an eagle (yes, the real thing) and a few gators (yes, they’re real, too).
It’s great for a girlfriend getaway of just relaxing in the sun or a trip with the family where you can all learn how to catch live crabs with about $15 in materials.
There are ghost tours that fill you in on the island’s past during an evening trolley ride.
You can climb to the top of the lighthouse for a view like no other.
The city’s small strip of shops offers everything from ice cream to high end art.
Places like the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort serve as a great spot to plant yourself for a few days and re-energize. You can dine on some delicious world-class meals, soak up the stunning view and find out about some of the amazing history of this critical little island.
And there are surprises everywhere you turn, especially if you know what to look for, like the ‘spirit trees’ sprinkled throughout the community.
What is it you’re looking for? Odds are, you’ll find it in St. Simons.
Unless it’s big waves or hurricanes. Those are both extremely rare here. You’ll have to find another coast for that stuff.
