February 26-28, 2020 Wednesday-Friday Saint Simon's & Cumberland Islands, & Savannah Riverfront
We have three wonderful destinations wrapped into a three day trip! Ideal for beach and ocean-lovers, photographers, wild animal enthusiasts, bicyclists, hikers, and adventures at heart.
Departing on Wednesday morning, we'll visit Savannah's Riverfront for a delicious included lunch followed by time to enjoy walking & browsing shops along the Savannah River.
Then we'll head further south along the Georgia coast to our destination for two nights on St. Simon's Island, where we have lovely boutique inn accommodations, steps away from many shops, restaurants, St. Simon's pier, lighthouse, & beach access. Both evenings will be yours to spend as you wish, as so much is within easy walking distance.
Thursday morning will start bright and early with hotel breakfast before heading south to board the Cumberland Island Ferry, which will take us to another world on Cumberland Island National Seashore for the day! Here you can choose to explore by foot, by bicycle ($16 rentals are first come first served upon arrival on Cumberland), or by guided Lands and Legacies Tour (you must purchase in advance through Ageless Adventures $45 additional). Since no purchases of food can be made on the Island, Ageless Adventures will provide lunches for you to take with you for the day. We'll all catch the last ferry to the mainland and head back to St. Simon's for another free evening.
Cumberland Island National Seashore is protected park land known for wildlife, including the many feral horses that roam the island at will.
You will have Friday morning to eat breakfast at the hotel and then explore St. Simon's by day. This will give you opportunity to visit the Welcome Center, Lighthouse and/or Lighthouse Museum, bus to Christ Church at the other end of the island, or walk the beach. Departure late morning. We'll stop for included lunch early afternoon. Arrive home early evening.
We will be assigning rooms in our hotel as reservations are made, beginning with the premium and deluxe rooms. Once those are all taken, standard King or Two Queen rooms will be assigned. Also, if you are signing up for the Lands and Legacies Tour, these are limited. The sooner you sign up for this trip the better!
