Saying goodbye to summer is never easy, but fortunately there’s always one last weekend in which we all get together to give it the proper farewell it deserves! Labor Day is on Monday, September 3rd this year, giving us one more weekend to bask in summer’s warmth, and if you spend it on St. Simons Island, you’re guaranteed to have three days of fun and frivolity before the boring days of fall and school begin again! Here’s a list of five incredible ways to spend your last days of your summer St. Simons Island vacation!
St. Simons Island Antiques Show & Sale
Held September 1st and 2nd from 9AM until 5PM (early bird hours are 7AM until 9AM), this bi-monthly event also features a Classic Car Cruise-In in addition to the antiques, art, and oddities that have made it a favorite of both residents and visitors from everywhere else! Held under the Oaks at Postell Parks, there really isn’t anything much more American than this fun event!
Sea Island Southern Grown Festival 2018
The four islands that comprise the Golden Isles are so closely intertwined, you rarely notice when you leave one and step on to another, and so the Sea Island Southern Grown Festival is an event that is easy to attend. Held Friday and Saturday of Labor Day Weekend, the live music, delicious food, and amazing drinks really do get the party started! Also offering arts, crafts, and that killer Georgia sunset, there’s something for everyone at this uniquely Southern festival.
It really doesn’t matter what season you are bidding farewell to, a day at the beach is ALWAYS a great idea during a St. Simons Island vacation. As the cooler nights of fall are slowly arriving, a bonfire on the beach (ONLY with a permit purchased from the Glynn County Fire Department) is both romantic and practical. Bring along a blanket, a picnic, and your favorite beverage and sit under the stars celebrating the end of another successful summer with those you love most.
