When the Outside Magazine’s online Adventure Adviser was asked, “Where are the best fall beach escapes?” by the Editors in Santa Fe, New Mexico, they answered with St. Simons Island, Georgia! Citing uncrowded beaches, moderate temperatures and great adventure activities, we couldn’t agree more that St. Simons Island is an ideal fall beach escape!
Heres’s how the Adventure Adviser described the Island:
St. Simons is the largest of Georgia’s four idyllic Golden Isles, and also typically the most touristy. But in the fall, when the taffy eaters have largely vanished and the air temperature still lingers in the 70s, you’ll barely have to share the soft, grass-crowned sand with anyone. The prime adventure activities are fishing from the shore or St. Simons Island Pier, surfing (you’ll need a wetsuit), and road biking through St. Simons and other barrier islands.
