St. Simon's Island is the most densely populated of all of Georgia's barrier islands. It doesn't seem at all remote, as does Cumberland, Jekyll, and Sapelo Islands, and probably has something to do with how easy it is to get there from downtown Brunswick.

St. Simons Island is a quieter beach island located in Georgia. The place is beautiful with many luxurious homes. It seems like a very nice place to retire. There are many vacation homes that you can rent in the summer time. It is also a very dog-friendly place!

Golden Isles has been a place I've wanted to visit. I was only able to visit St. Simon and Jekyll Island. Jekyll Island was much more laid back and beautiful. St. Simon was okay to visit for a quick trip. We only visited the lighthouse, and it was neat to see. I wouldn't spend more than a quick dat trip here.

Lined with white sand and live oaks, the biggest of Georgia’s Golden Isles won high marks for romance and in the beach-town category for offering a triple threat of southern charm, serenity, and affordability. It’s not hard, after all, to get hotel rates here under $200 a night. St. Simons Inn, for instance, overlooks a 19th-century lighthouse, while the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort, a former dance club, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. St. Simons also scored well with readers for its good picnicking spots, and for events like the 4th of July Sunshine Festival. You can rent bicycles, browse antique shops, and check out another undeniable marker of romantic destinations: the local lighthouse.
