This weekend Brunswick, Georgia hosts the annual Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation Bridge Run. This special event is unique in the fact that the run takes places solely on the 7,780 Sidney Lanier Bridge. Whereas most bridge runs include roads leading up to the bridge or following the bridge. Because of its heights and distance it is certified by the U.S. Track and Field Associations as “the toughest 5k in Georgia”!

If you prefer not to work up a sweat while relaxing on your long President’s day weekend you could enjoy fine dining at one of many great restaurants on the island. Try Georgia Sea Grill where locally sourced seafood is served fresh daily. You will be impressed by the plate presentation but blown away by the taste of the cuisine. Perhaps you would like some down home southern cooking, if so visit Barbara Jeans. Famous for her crab cakes but all of her cooking can fill the void of some delicious soul food.

After you fill your bellies take a bike ride or walk along the beach! Sunset this time of year is around 6:30 so you have plenty of time to eat an early dinner and then take in the salt air as you watch the sun slip down.

With many art exhibits, storytelling festival, and outdoor activities there is something here that suits everyone’s long day weekend desires! Come to St. Simons and enjoy your long weekend having some island fun!
