Most days spent on St. Simons Island and the surrounding Golden Isles are sunny and warm but every now and again storms pass through. For vacationers, a rainy day trapped inside with kids excited for a beach day can be a scary thought so we’ve put together a list of recommendations for you and your family to try next time your beach day gets cancelled by the rain!
Rainy Day Activities in the Golden Isles
- Georgia Sea Turtle Center With admission tickets less than $10 the Sea Turtle Center is a great way to spend an afternoon. You will learn about the life of a sea turtle from conception to adulthood. You will get to watch them feed, maybe even see a medical procedure performed through the spectating window to the surgery room, and you will learn about how we can change our daily habits to better protect them.
- St Simons Island Movie Theatre The Island Cinemas is centrally located on St Simons and offers family friendly and affordable fun. With morning, afternoon, and evening movie times they have got you covered at any time on a rainy day.
- light house museum Another family friendly and affordable activity option is the Lighthouse Museum. Climb to the top of the lighthouse and take in breathtaking views overlooking the ocean or opt for the drier choice and meander through the Keeper’s Dwellings which houses the Museum exhibits.
