Jekyll Island, Georgia
Transcript of Jekyll Island, Georgia
Jekyll Island is off the coast of Georgia; one of the Golden Isles of Georgia.
If you’ve never been to Jekyll Island, you need to put it on your list. Beautiful beaches, wildlife, unique flora, and a great deal of history can be found throughout the island. The Jekyll Island Club was founded in 1886 and was a vacation spot for the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts. It is now a luxury resort hotel, and has been beautifully restored.
North End of Jekyll Island
A special attraction on Jekyll Island is Driftwood Beach, sometimes referred to as the Elephant Graveyard because of the unique formations of the large driftwood pieces scattered along the beach. The trees died over the past 200 years, primarily from beach erosion. There aren’t any real elephant remains there, but the driftwood formations are worth the trip.
Hungry? Try the Low Country Boil
Relax and Enjoy!
Watching the tides come and go, watching the sun rise and set, watching the shrimp boats depart and return; there's always something to do on Jekyll.
Majestic “Live” Oak trees are found throughout the 9 mile long island
The old oak trees on the Island are a sight to see, with Spanish Moss hanging down, often creating a thick canopy. Many of the tree trunks are covered with the beautiful Resurrection Fern. These trees are considered to be “live” oak because they are evergreen; remaining green throughout the winter rather than going dormant and leafless. The Southern Live Oak is the state tree of Georgia.
The shrimp on Jekyll are super fresh and locally caught. Add in potatoes, sausage, corn-on-the-cob, peppers, onions and seasonings; and you’ve got the famous Low Country Boil.
Consider eating on the dock at the Rah Bar at the Historic Wharf near the Jekyll Island Club.
