There’s only a couple days left to enter the HGTV® Dream Home 2017 sweepstakes – don’t forget to click here for your chance to win! In case you need a little daydream fodder for things do on St. Simons Island if you won the Dream Home, here are some snapshots and suggestions from my trip on some of the pleasures St. Simons Island has to offer.
St. Simons Island is one of a chain of gorgeous, perpetually sun-drenched islands very appropriately named the Golden Isles off the southern coast of Georgia. At only 18 square miles, it is reachable by car from the mainland or you can fly into what must be one of the tiniest and cutest airports ever (there’s usually only a couple flights in and out a day). With its endless beaches, mossy-oak lined lanes, and warm, tranquil waters, the island encourages a perfect state of relaxation – the epitome of Southern comfort. However, if you choose, more active visitors will find opportunities to bike, boat, kayak, fish, or even go horseback riding. Go bird watching in the marshlands or golfing at one of the island’s nationally acclaimed golf courses.
