St. Simons Island is a vacation enclave. This beautiful island rests among Georgia’s Golden Isles, a landmark with its 10,000 acres of sustainable land. Despite the large land area, it’s exclusive; there’s a limit on the guest amount where you won’t be overrun. Why do we tell you all this? Well because St. Simons Island is an excellent President’s Day getaway.
Who Says It’s Great?
Let’s put its merit in the forefront, Little St. Simons Island won number 1 Resort by Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Award 2007 and “Gold List” in 2013 by Conde Nast Traveler; an acclaim awarded by both guests and the experts. This isn’t a Motel 6 hiding behind big words, it’s a curated experience.

How Did it All Begin?
Originally, St. Simons Island was called “a forest in the sea”, an island with a personality of its own, but little was done with it until the late 1700s. At this point, the island was taken and used as a plantation, until valuable cedar was discovered and purchased by the Eagle Pencil Company. Interestingly enough, cedar production never took place, and the man who bought the island began the trend we see today, of taking his friends and family there as a retreat.
