This Dreamy Georgia Island Is Home to Beautiful Beaches, Delicious Southern Food, and Family-friendly Hiking Trails

Jekyll Island, Georgia, is the perfect family vacation destination — here's how to plan the ultimate trip.

The beach may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a vacation to the Peach State, but just off the coast of Georgia sits a quiet area of wide-open sandy stretches, marshes, and acres of moss-draped live oaks.

The southernmost of the four barrier islands making up Georgia’s Golden Isles — so named for their natural radiance and dreamy appeal — Jekyll Island was once a favored retreat of the country’s most influential families. Today, it maintains its age-old appeal, but its 5,500 acres and 10 miles of shoreline are just as accessible to vacationing families as they are to an exceedingly well-heeled crowd. The island is owned by the state of Georgia, and development is strictly limited in order to preserve its critical barrier island ecosystem, so everything is built with intention, creating a destination that feels a bit like discovering hidden treasure.
