Golden Isles 2017 Visitor Guide Page 2 Discover the Golden Isles

2 2017 Official Visitor Guide DISCOVER (800) 933-2627 As the largest barrier island in the Golden Isles, St. Simons Island lies across the immortalized Marshes of Glynn, made famous by poet Sidney Lanier. The causeway, which traverses these glorious marshlands, crossing Intracoastal rivers along the way, leads to moss-draped, stately oaks which line the winding island streets, creating a picture-perfect image worthy of a Faulkner tale. And the short drive to the southern point of the island displays the peaceful beach with its breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is how St. Simons Island introduces itself. Once you've settled in, these same expansive marsh grasses and ancient oaks form the perfect backdrop for the area's challenging golf courses, friendly inns, cozy homes and luxurious resorts. The island's shopping villages offer a charming and unique selection of shops, plus a plentiful variety of restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual outdoor fare.
