Wedding season is just around the corner so now is the time to plan the bachelorette party! St. Simons Island, GA and the Golden Isles has become a popular choice for singles celebrating their upcoming nuptials. With its laid back atmosphere, chic shopping, and delectable restaurants it is the perfect place to for the last hurrah. Here are some of our favorite things to do while you are here celebrating.
Head out on the Water – one of the best things about the Golden Isles is the miles of waterways. For a day of adventure plan a kayaking trip with Southeast Adventure. Paddle through picturesque marshes while taking in local marine life. Looking for something a tad more relaxing, take a sunset cruise. On board with the String of Pearls you can sip wine, or snack from a charcuterie while snapping photos of the sunset. Tip: Plan a private tour for the ultimate celebration.
Dinner and Dancing – what’s a bachelorette party without dinner and dancing. A unique spot to try out is Reid Apothecary’s . Their menu is a mix of southern favorites and light bites. After dinner step back in time at the Study, an after hours speakeasy. Make sure to call before 4:30pm to get the password to the speakeasy. If you want to stay on the island head to Bennie’s Red Barn for a delicious steak dinner and walk next door for an outdoor dance party at the Tree Bar. Mid-island you’ll find Ember which has an eclectic range of dinner options and connected to the dining room is Ember Mas with unique cocktails, comfy sofas, live music and pool tables. Tip: Make reservations well in advance.
Beach Days – it’s always important to plan one day to relax on the beach. St. Simons Island offers miles of sandy spots to soak up the sun. We recommend East Beach because of the easy access and parking. Massengale Park Beach is also a great option because of its close proximity to restaurants and shops. Tip: Walk to Echo at King and Prince for mid-day refreshments.
Shopping – with shopping centers scattered around all over the island, you can spend a day splurging on all your favorite things. Redfern Village has everything from bathing suits to housewares to florals. Further north on the island is the Shops at Sea Island and Market Street which house favorites like Butlers Stash, Gentlemen’s Outfitters, and Cloister Collection. If it’s a keepsake you’re looking for then bike no further than the Pier Village, and after shopping take a walk to the Lighthouse or grab lunch at one of the many restaurants nearby.
