Favorite thing: Visit Tidelands Nature Center on Jekyll Island where you can tour the marsh, beach or landscape on foot or by kayak or canoe. Be sure to call first to arrange your tour so you won't be disappointed. (912)-635-5032 I chose the marsh tour, but was somewhat disappointed since the recent spring tide had washed away the crustaceans and baby fish! Since there was so little food for them, most of the birds had disappeared, too.
You have to visit the Golden Isles...three islands off the mainland of Brunswick. They are peaceful and so beautiful, but hurry before the developers make it into a sour experience.
Fondest memory: I spend most of my time on St. Simons Island, which is my fondest memory of the area.
