Cassina Garden Club Slave Cabins
Hamilton Plantation, owned by James Hamilton, a native of Scotland, was located on Gascoigne Bluff near Fort Frederica. The Bluff was named for Captain James Gascoigne, commander of the British sloop “Hawk.” The Bluff became a storehouse for marine supplies, ship repair facilities and in effect, was Georgia’s first naval base. Hamilton Plantation was a working plantation, producing long staple Sea Island cotton along with oak and pine timbers. Of the several tabby slave cabins built on the plantation, two remain today. They were constructed of tabby, which is a concrete-like mixture of lime, sand, water and oyster shells. The mixture is poured into wooden frames to harden. The cabins were divided in the center by a fireplace, thus creating two rooms that housed two families. Glass windows and wooden outside doors indicate that these cabins were probably living quarters of slaves that were high in the privilege hierarchy. Cassina Garden Club began meeting in these cabins in 1932 and was deeded the property in 1950. As owner of this beautiful historic site, the Cassina Garden Club has carefully restored and preserved the integrity of the cabins and displays many artifact and graphical histories. The cabins are located adjacent to Epworth-by-the-Sea, a Methodist Conference Center. General Oglethorpe’s secretary, Charles Wesley and his famous Anglican clergyman brother, John, considered by many the founder of the Methodist Church, trod these grounds. All of this property was formerly part of Hamilton Plantation. Not surprisingly, this beautiful historic property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of Interior in 1988.

Christ Church, Frederica
Christ Church, Frederica is located in a serene setting formed by native live oaks, holly and cedar trees. On the site of Christ Church, nestled among huge oak trees on the scenic north end of St. Simons Island, John and Charles Wesley preached before returning to England to help found the Methodist Church. In addition to being credited with founding the Methodist Church in England, the Wesley brothers also played a major role in the development of the Episcopal Church. The first church structure was built in 1820 but was partially destroyed by Union troops during the Civil War. In 1884, the Reverend Anson Phelps Dodge, Jr., built the present structure in memory of his wife, Ellen. Christ Church is constructed of wood in the cruciform design with a trussed Gothic roof and steeple. The grounds contain a cemetery with graves of early settlers and many famous Georgians. One famous Georgia author, Eugenia Price, who wrote many novels including a series on St. Simons is buried here along with Lucien Knight, the first state historian of Georgia. Still another famous Georgian, a plantation owner who owned the point on St. Simons where the lighthouse was built, is buried at Christ Church cemetery. A little known fact is that the cemetery’s oldest tombstone is from 1803. Today, the beautiful church and its magnificent stained glass windows are home to an active Episcopal congregation on St. Simons. Christ Church is one of St. Simons Island’s most treasured landmarks. Don’t forget to bring your camera, Christ Church, Frederica is one of the most photographed locations on St. Simons Island and some say, in America. Christ Church, Frederica is open to the public for tours every day (except Tuesdays, Easter & Christmas) from 2:00pm - 5:00pm. For safety reasons, the cemetery grounds are closed every Tuesday for routine landscape maintenance from 7:00am - 4:00pm. Visitors can walk the grounds for free. Services are held each day at 5:00pm, on Fridays at 11:30am, and every Sunday from 8:00am - 11:00am. Please be respectful and quiet when on the grounds, and avoid visits during service hours.

Coastal Outdoor Adventures Offers ‘Sharkfest Jekyll’ Camp for Kids
Coastal Outdoor Adventures has been offering Adventure camps for kids for the last few years, and now they’ve started an awesome camp on Jekyll Island for this summer called “Sharkfest Jekyll”. An interactive, hands-on learning experience with a staff knowledgeable about Coastal Ecology makes for great two-day camps for children ages 6-14. For only $175 ($25 discount for additional siblings), kids can get out on the open water from 9:00am-1:00pm to experience nature and fish for a variety of coastal sharks, including the Bonnethead, Spinner Sharks, Sandbars, Blacktips, and many more. Although Sharkfest Jekyll is intended to be a two-day camp, parents can choose to have their child experience it for only one day for half the price. While out on the water, kids will learn about different bait and techniques to catch sharks and other fish. The Sharkfest Jekyll Camp is limited to the first 18 children registered and departure is from the Hampton River Marina (St. Simon’s Island campers) and Jekyll Wharf Marina (Sharkfest campers). If you need quick access to register your children for the Sharkfest Jekyll camp, you may do so online here.

Colonial Coast Birding Trail
Coastal Georgia is steeped in human and natural history. Since the first human inhabitants colonized the coast, man and the abundant natural resources found here have been inexorably linked. A visit to one or more sites along the Colonial Coast Birding Trail will provide you with the opportunity to see and enjoy the beauty of a kaleidoscope of birds and glimpse the fascinating history of this land and its residents. The sites along the Colonial Coast Birding Trail located in Georgia’s Golden Isles include: Gould’s Inlet, Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation, Jekyll Island Causeway and Jekyll Island Beach at the North and South ends. More than 300 species of birds (75 percent of the total species of birds seen in Georgia) have been spotted at the 18 sites along the birding trail. Don't expect to see most of these birds on a single visit because the birds you see will depend greatly on when and where you visit. Some birds can be seen throughout the year; others are migratory and travel long distances from their breeding grounds to wintering areas. If you want to see migrants, you need look for them during those times of the year when they visit Georgia. You will also find a wide variety of habitats along the trail. Shorelines, salt marshes, old rice fields, woodlands, tidal rivers, freshwater wetlands and other habitats host their own fascinating bird communities. Each site along the Colonial Coast Birding Trail is unique. Many sites offer visitors the opportunity to watch birds and visit 18th and 19th Century historic places. Other sites are located on lands and waters that were once part of early plantations dedicated to growing rice, indigo and cotton. So whether you want to see a bald eagle soaring over a coastal river, an endangered wood stork feeding its gawky young, sanderlings chasing the waves on a sandy beach, or a great egret standing motionless in a placid pond, the Colonial Coast Birding Trail has something for you. The numbers of birds found along the trail change with the rising and falling of the tides and with the passage of the seasons. Consequently, each visit offers the chance to experience a new wildlife adventure. Spend some time along the Colonial Coast Birding Trail and learn why the Creek Indians called the Georgia coast “The Enchanted Land ”.

Disc Golf Gascoigne Bluff on St. Simons Island
The Disc Golf course is located at Gascoigne Bluff on St. Simons Island. Gascoigne Bluff is a beautiful and unique setting amongst live oaks, whose ancestors are believed to have been used in the building of the U.S.S. Constitution nicknamed “Old Ironsides”. The 6-hole course is slightly technical because of the low tree canopy and hole design that utilizes the very old live oaks as obstacles. You must bring your own discs/Frisbees to play. You can print the disc golf scorecard (below) before your visit to the Gascoigne Bluff Disc Golf Course. If this is your first time playing disc golf please see the rules below. Directions to the Disc Golf Course: Follow the F.J. Torras Causeway (St. Simons Island Causeway) which becomes Demere Road. Then turn left onto Sea Island Road, make another left onto Hamilton Road, and one more left onto Arthur J. Moore Drive. The first tee box is located at the southern end of the park next to the pavilion and restrooms.

Driftwood Beach
Located on the north end of Jekyll Island, Driftwood beach will amaze you with the beautiful driftwood and trees that resemble a tree graveyard. This is due to the north end of the island slowly eroding away and being deposited on the south end of the island. Driftwood beach offers a wonderful location for photographs and is a very popular site for weddings. Driftwood beach extends from the Clam Creek Picnic Area to the Villas By The Sea Resort and Conference Center and is only a short walk away from the Jekyll Island Campground. From Clam Creek Picnic Area, simply follow signs for the Wildlife Viewing Area and take the paved walkway toward Clam Creek. Walk over the bridge and you will see two beach access points toward the left. Multiple beach access points along North Beachview Drive also provide access to Driftwood beach. You can park at designated parking areas along the road, next to each beach access point.

East Beach
“East Beach” is the name given to St. Simons Island Beach, the stretch of beach along the Oceanside of St. Simons Island. This is a great location for a range of beach activities, from relaxed shelling to extreme kite boarding, and everything in between. Because of the tides, the sand along East Beach is hard packed and suitable for biking. East Beach is made of smaller sections named after each beach access point. On the northern tip of East Beach, located at the end of Bruce Drive, is Gould’s Inlet, which has very limited parking. Just south of Gould’s Inlet, is the most popular beach location on the island named U.S. Coast Guard Station, after the historic coast guard station that still stands at the entrance today as the present home to the Maritime Museum. Located between the Coast Guard Station and the King and Prince Resort, you will find a more secluded beach access point at Massengale Park. Depending on the tide, you can even access the southern point of East Beach at Pier Village. This is a great location to bike and fish at low tide, providing easy access to the village shops and the Neptune Park Fun Zone.

Epworth By The Sea Historical Site
A world renowned conference and retreat center, Epworth By The Sea is a 100 acre campus located on Gascoigne Bluff, the one-mile riverbank tract stretching from the causeway bridge to the bend in the Frederica River. More than 200 years after the Revs. John and Charles Wesley labored on St. Simons Island, South Georgia Methodists agreed that this was the perfect location for a conference and retreat center. Assisted by influential businessman Alfred W. Jones, Sr., president of the Sea Island Company, the Methodists purchased part of the Hamilton Plantation in 1949 and named it Epworth in honor of the Wesley’s boyhood home in Epworth, England. Epworth By The Sea is owned by the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church, and accommodates up to 900 people in its variety of motel rooms, family apartments and youth cabins. Auditoriums seat from 300 to 900. Meeting rooms and classrooms have audiovisual equipment. An in-season swimming pool, athletic field, covered basketball courts, tennis courts, bicycle rentals and fishing piers provide sports activities for all ages.
