You can pick up some info on the island at the attractive "tabby" visitor center which is on hwy 17 in Brunswick where the causeway leads to the island. I was a bit disappointed in the kind of material they have as most of it seems geared toward commercial enterprises and there is not much on the history of the island - or even a really decent map. The building is nice though and is constructed of "tabby," a local material which is a mixture of sand, shells and mortar and is typical of the traditional structures of St. Simons.
Fondest memory: East Beach, Island Sweets, the Marshes of Glynn.
Favorite thing: Go down king's way to the end and park, and right there is a huge playground for the kids. They were nice enough to put ALOT of park benches under the huge tree for the parents sit and watch the children as they play, so the parents get the shade!
Favorite thing: The local fishing pier at the end of King's Way. This is a nice pier, large, clean, and has cleaning stations for you to clean you catch. Great views. Really nice people make this island fun. This pier has been here near a hundred years.
Favorite thing: On St Simons Island at the end of King's Way you can very easily see Jekyll Island. To give you an idea of what part of Jekyll Island, your looking toward Driftwood Beach on the Northside. Pretty short hop over the bridge.
