WE came by here, but decided for the $6 each to enter and only having about 1/2 time, we passed. Besides the fort looked small form the view afar. The fort was built 1721 by British to hold off French and Spanish in the area. The main feature is the three story block house. There are live enactments during certain summer months. Open 9-5:30 Tues-Sat and Sunday 2-5.

I do not think there is much to it, and it was closed when we came through here on Saturday. It is located inside the City Hall building, about one block form the waterfront.

There is a great little wine store in down town Darien that sells the best wine from all parts of the world. They sell wonderful Buckhead Beef steaks along with many different types of cheese made in Georgia. There is also a lovely shop next door that has the most beautiful gifts for all. You must visit these two places if you travel to Darien.

Captain Phillip's Charters and Tours offers the most fun "Pirate Boat Tour" during the Darien Fall Fest. The ride took us on the Darien River to Historic Fort King George where we had a battle with the soldiers before being taken prisioner. We then had a great tour back along the river where we saw the Shrimp Boat fleet.

located on the gounds of the mcintosh county courthouse is the conferderate civil war memorial. most memorials in the south depict a soldier, a draped flag, or a plain obelisk. this short memorial is very unique.

hofwyl-broadfield was established in 1806 by william brailsford. brailsford developed a 7,300 acre rice plantation that was named broadfield. the name hofwyl was added by george dent in the 1850's after a school he attended in switzerland. on the outbreak of the civil war george dent and his son james joined the confederate army and his wife ophelia moved to a refugee settlement in waycross georgia. after the civil war the plantation continued to produce rice until 1913. from 1913 to 1973 the plantation served as a dairy. in 1973 the plantation was given to the state of georgia. hofwyl-broadfield plantation is a interesting place to visit to see the culture of georgia's rice coast in the 1800's.

This was highly recommended, so we stopped for lunch. Clam chowder, brunswick stew and oysters. Overall, the food was okay, not not great as I expected. The chowder was thick but lacked deep hearty taste, and the brunswick was watery and not a lot of flavor. The oysters were good, but by the time you cracked through the shells for these small devils, not much meat was there to sample for $13 a dozen. The stew and chowder was $5 a bowl; a bit pricey for the small sizes.
A youthful dis-interested group operated the place, and service was mediocre at best. Beer was $45. a draft--UGH
Favorite Dish: Oysters would be the best guess.

Skipper is right on the river near the shrimp boats tied up at the dock. Seafood can't get any fresher. The rustic dining room and bar are comfortable and inviting with great views. Best of all, though, is their incredible scored and then fried fresh flounder. I have never had better! We make it a point to get there for dinner any time we are in Darien.
Favorite Dish: Fried fresh flounder--it's scored, lightly battered, and flash fried. Moist and absolutely delicious.

Favorite thing: It is right off US 95 and in a shopping center. Not that easy to find, because it is hidden in the back portion of the center, but fronts the road coming into the town. The town is about 1 mile down.
Sea creatures is the said myth around here, because supposedly one has been seen out in the water.
