St. Simons Island, Georgia

If you’re looking for luxurious accommodations, look no further than the King & Prince. Recent renovations have only enhanced this island beauty, which offers rooms, condos, villas, pools, a spa and restaurants, including the island’s only restaurant on the ocean. The Lodge and the Cloister, on Sea Island, also offer plush accommodations and incredible amenities (each room at the Lodge comes with your own butler). For a more casual but still lovely experience, stay at the Saint Simon’s Inn By the Lighthouse. Chef Dave Schneider offers two delicious spots on the island: Halyard’s, which serves local meat, fish and organic produce, and Tramici, a fantastic Italian restaurant. Sit outside and enjoy the fresh fare at Coastal Kitchens. Don’t miss Southern Soul Barbeque, where the savory meat is smoked on-sight. Since you’re on an island, take advantage and visit the Coast Guard Station beach. Rent sailboats, paddleboards and umbrellas and relax on the sand before venturing out on the water. Finally, play 18 holes at one of the many impressive local courses, including the Sea Palms Resort.
