Jekyll Island a historic gem, on coastal Georgia

 

Jekyll Island is located 93 miles south of Savannah Ga, via Interstate 95.  Travelers can get a break of a busy commercialized beach that offers a good selection of lodging and a campground.

The island has a long history going back to 1733 and 60% of the island today is not developed.

The island features a historic area that was once a vacation spot for the wealthiest Americans.  Other places of interest is the site of Georgia’s first brewery and the Jekyll Island Club where AT&T President Theodore Newton Vail participated in the nations first   transcontinental phone call.

The public beach is beautiful, accessible to shops and restaurants.

Be prepared to pay $6.00 for a daily entry  pass , well worth it.
