Top Reasons to Visit St. Simons Island for Halloween

The month of October, including the Halloween season, is an awesome time to visit the St. Simons Island in the gorgeous state of Georgia. Fall has arrived, and with it comes wonderful temperatures and lots of fun things to do. Check out these great Halloween events:

Ghosts and Legends of Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation Walking Tours – October 6-27

Step back in time with this eerie journey at this historic haunted Georgia rice plantation. You’ll walk beneath centuries-old oak trees, explore the out buildings, and top it off with a lantern tour where you’ll listen to stories of ghostly encounters, folk tales about the plantation, and the rich, but tragic history of the rice fields. The tour lasts about an hour and a half and is about a mile in length, so wear comfy walking shoes and prepare for fun and spookiness!

“Turtleween” at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center – October 28

Join the Georgia Sea Turtle staff and volunteers for this fabulous fall event with a sea turtle theme. It’s an outdoor event with exhibits and fun activities that the whole family can enjoy!

Georgia – Florida Golf Classic – October 25-27

This is a pre-game event before the SEC football showdown between Georgia and Florida. Join the rivalry on Jekyll Island for a traditional mixing of golf, food and fun!

Fun in the Fall Sun

There are also plenty of not-so-scary things to do during the end of October on St. Simons Island.

Get to the area’s culture and art while visiting some of the art museums, such as the Glynn Visual Arts Center or the Ritz Theater. You can also visit galleries such as the Left Bank Art Gallery or the Anderson Fine Art Gallery to get a taste of local and national artists.

Other activities include biking, hiking, birding and sailing. Take advantage of the area golf course for a round or two, and of course, don’t miss out on all the beach fun that can include cruises or just lounging on the sandy beaches.
