Things To Do

September in the South

September 3, 2020

As the hot August temps slowly begin to drop and the first cool breezes of fall start blowing in, St. Simons Island and the Golden Isles becomes a quiet haven for families and island visitors.  The warms days and cooler evenings make it the perfect time to explore the Golden Isles, and take advantage of the beaches, educational programs, and delicious restaurants.  And no need to worry if you didn’t get your vacation booked in time for Labor Day; the Golden Isles has plenty of events the entire month of September…and well into the rest of fall.  Whether you are here to relax on the beach and take a leisurely bike ride around the island, or if you are wanting to educate your kids on the wonders of St. Simons Island, we have a little something for everyone.
