The St. Simons Lighthouse, one of the enduring beacons on the coast, stands on the north side of St. Simons Island. marking the cut. The first light, built in 1804, was one of the first brick structures on the island.
Since then St. Simons Island has become one of the famous Golden Isles, favored by mild weather and cool Atlantic breezes. Here, island guests find the perfect recipe for year long vacationing. All along the Georgia coast, guests and residents delight in swimming, sailing, fishing and a string of beautiful beaches. Golfing enthusiasts enjoy the deep green fairways, while history buffs trace the beginnings of Oglethorpe's settlements, antebellum homes, and the area's true southern historic districts.
