Darien Things to Do

  • Fort King George

    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...

  • Darien County Museum

    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.

  • Great little wine store

    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.

  • Boat Tours

    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.

Darien Restaurants

  • Fishy Situation

    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...

  • Great seafood where the shrimp boats...

    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...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Entry to center Look for Sea Creature Sign
