Gascoigne Bluff
Historically, Gascoigne Bluff was the first possible landing area for a ship entering the harbor. The site of an Indian settlement long before the Wesleys landed here with James Oglethorpe, Gascoigne Bluff has been headquarters for a military invasion, a Sea Island cotton plantation, the site of a lumber mill and a shipping point for timber. Live oak timbers milled here in 1794 were used in building “Old Ironsides,” the U.S.S. Constitution. In 1874, timbers were cut here for the Brooklyn Bridge. At Gascoigne Bluff, you can visit the Cassina Garden Club Slave Cabins from the Plantation Era, a Southern Red Cedar tree that is the second largest of its kind in Georgia, a fishing pier, and a beautiful stand of live oak trees. Across the Frederica River, you will see three “ballast hammocks”, small islands formed from ballast dumped by European ships before taking on cotton or lumber. In addition to being a historic site, Gascoigne Bluff features a public fishing pier, a floating dock, a picnic pavilion, two grills, a disc golf course, a fitness trail and restroom facilities. The park is free, open year round and host to numerous events such as the annual Kingfish Tournament. The 6-hole disc golf course is spread throughout the live oak grove. Along the Southeast side of the live oak grove you will see the entrance to the Southeast Georgia Health System Fitness Trail which is a paved fitness trail with signs along the way educating visitors about the “Fit-Trail” balanced program of total fitness conditioning. Gascoigne Bluff is a great place for a family picnic/BBQ under the pavilion and provides easy access to the pier for fishing or boating. Since Gascoigne Bluff is the location for many annual events and fishing tournaments, it is a good idea to check our events calendar before you visit. Restrooms are on-site near the Pier.

Guided Tours
No trip to the Golden Isles is complete without experiencing one of our nature, historic, or ghost tours. With our coastal marshlands and beaches so full of life, there are very few places better suited for nature tours. You can choose from quiet and educational birding tours – to discover many of the 300+ species that frequent the Golden Isles – or an adventurous and educational shrimping tour aboard the Lady Jane, a working shrimp boat. One of the most popular historic tours on St. Simons Island is the trolley tour. Ride the trolley to see historic landmarks and local attractions while learning about the stories, people and legends that make the Golden Isles magical. Other well-known tours are provided by the Jekyll Island Museum. These historic tours feature a guided tram tour of the 240 acre historic district, including entry into two historic cottages built by prominent members of the “Millionaire’s Club”. Whether it's the middle of May or Halloween, enjoy an eerie ghost tour year round to learn about the legends of our past. Rumor has it that some of our historic sites are haunted and might provide a paranormal experience you will never forget. Two of the most popular tours offered are the Ghost Walk of St. Simons and the Historic Brunswick Ghost Adventures.

Harris Neck Wildlife National Wildlife Refuge
Welcome to Harris Neck NWR Harris Neck NWR was established in 1962 by transfer of federal lands formerly managed by the Federal Aviation Administration as a WWII Army airfield. Located in McIntosh County, Georgia, the refuge serves as an important link in the chain of refuges along the Atlantic seaboard, and is the inland base for two neighboring barrier island refuges, Blackbeard Island and Wolf Island refuges, both located southeast of Harris Neck. Harris Neck's 2,824 acres consists of salt marsh, open fields, forested wetland and mixed hardwood/pine forest. Because of this great diversity in habitat, many species of birds are attracted to the refuge throughout the year. In the summer, thousands of egrets and herons nest in the freshwater ponds, while in the winter, waterfowl can be found feeding and resting on the refuge. Over 15 miles of paved roads and trails provide the visitor easy access to the many different habitats. Chosen for it's accessibility and bird diversity, Harris Neck is one of 18 sites forming the Colonial Coast Birding Trail, inaugurated in 2000. Getting There . . . Harris Neck NWR is located in McIntosh County, Georgia, 5 miles north of Eulonia and 50 air miles south of the port city of Savannah. To reach Harris Neck, take Exit 67 off I-95 and travel south on U.S. 17 for approximately one mile, then east on Harris Neck Road for seven miles to the main entrance gate.

Hiking & Walking
f you enjoy exercising outdoors, then the abundance of trails located throughout the Golden Isles make walking, hiking or jogging an ideal way to see the area. Many popular attractions are connected by bike paths and are located within short distances of one another. The beaches also provide an ideal place to walk or run, especially during low tides. You can venture deeper into our natural surroundings hiking one of the many nature trails that meander through maritime forest and marshlands. Many of these nature trails in the area were donated by local organizations to not only provide safe access into the wilderness but also to educate people about local wildlife, nature, and our unique environment. Remember, when exploring the outdoors it is recommended that you bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray—especially during the summer months. 3

Historic Brunswick Courthouse
The Historic Brunswick Courthouse is situated in a grove of live oaks within Magnolia Square—one of the historic parks and squares used to house livestock as a community pasture. The parcel was purchased in 1905 from the City for $1.00. Today it is still surrounded by mossy live oak trees in addition to trees of foreign origin including Tung and Chinese pistachio. The courthouse was designed by New Jersey architect Charles Alling Gifford of the New York firm Gifford & Bates. Gifford’s work is notable within the National Historic Landmark District on Jekyll Island, principally Sans Souci Apartments (1896), Mistletoe Cottage (1900), and Jekyll Island Clubhouse Annex (1901). The cornerstone was laid on December 27, 1906 and construction was completed on December 18, 1907 at a total cost of $97,613. Restoration work began in the early 1990’s. Noted as a fine example of Neoclassical Revival style or Beaux Arts (fine arts) architecture that flourished, 1885-1920, this impressive building is still widely known for its exceptional beauty. Beaux Arts combines ancient Greek & Roman forms with Renaissance ideas and is an eclectic Neoclassical style. Design suggests interlinking philosophy of justice: four identical entrances complement interior columns leading to justice; an intricate iron stair rail suggests delicate balance and the frailties of man. The new Glynn County Courthouse is located immediately north of the structure and opposite the Courthouse at 1709 Reynolds Street, the Mahoney-McGarvey House is known as one of the finest examples of Carpenter Gothic architecture in Georgia.
