St. Simons Island, Georgia
A Natural Resort
St. Simons Island has been a popular vacation destination since native Americans
shared the rich bounty of these islands hundreds of years ago.
here when Oglethorpe arrived from England
to settle Georgia as the 13th colony in 1733.
the landscape looks much the same, with moss-draped oaks, shady lanes and
creek-fed pockets of marsh - a thriving habitat for birds and a diverse range of other
wildlife, from turtles to armadillo and deer.
The soul of this island is
timeless, heartfelt, graceful, spiritual, and
history enriches every view.
Best-selling author Eugenia Price wrote all of her historical novels here,
her words emanating from this deepfelt sense of time and place.
Things To Do
Take a walk in the park where soft winds blow fresh from the sea.
Generations have stood where you stand, watching for ships on the horizon
while dolphins play in the surf and pelicans dive for dinner.
Neptune Park includes a playground, lots of benches for relaxing by the sea, picnic tables under the oaks, and
the bandstand where events are held throughout the year.
The park is surrounded by the Pier, St. Simons Library,
Little Theatre, public restrooms,
and The St. Simons Lighthouse and Museum. The heart of the Island is beating here!
