Growing up in Kentucky, y’all know I love horses. Then, moving to Florida as a newlywed, I fell madly in love with the beach. So, give me a place you can combine both, and I’m a happy Southern girl.
On Jekyll Island, off the coast of Georgia, you’ll find it all — moody Spanish moss-draped trees, juxtaposed against the wide jewel blue horizon of the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time on the perfect island.
Take a bike ride, walk along a sandbar, view wildlife in the marshes, visit the Summer Waves Waterpark, pack a picnic, stay in a turn-of-the-century hotel or camp if that’s your fancy. Whatever you do, you’ll be experiencing the best the South has to offer. Jekyll Island is a quintessential Southern island.
