The Top 5 Reasons To Visit St. Simons Island

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Although we could write a long list of reasons why everyone should visit our island paradise, we whittled it down to our top five:

5. Spectacular Sunrises & Sunsets. Even if you aren’t a morning person, we recommend waking up early and watching the sunrise. You can view it from the beach, from our pool deck or even from your oceanfront balcony! Although you can sometimes catch a gorgeous sunset from the resort, the best place on the island to catch one is from the pier in the village.

4. Golf. With over 200 holes of golf to be played on St. Simons Island and the surrounding areas, the Golden Isles are a golfers paradise! The King and Prince Golf Course on the north end of St. Simons offers some of the best golf around and they often have specials available for resort guests!

3.  Delicious Food. With a variety of options to choose from, you will never leave the island hungry! From Italian at Tramici, to coastal cuisine at Halyards and Crabdaddys, to award winning BBQ at Southern Soul, to oceanfront dining at it’s best at ECHO, you will find delicious food around every corner.

2. Pristine Beaches. Our beaches are relatively undeveloped. You will not find high-rise buildings along our shore. Just seaside cottages and homes. We have small waves which are perfect for young swimmers and our shores littered with footprints…..not trash.

1. Outdoor Activities. There is something for everyone to enjoy on our small island. We have miles of bike paths around the island, golf, fishing, paddleboard lessons and rentals, kayak tours, parks for the little ones to enjoy and even a shrimp boat you can hop on to explore our waterways!

Take Your Meeting Outside The Boardroom

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Let’s just say it. Meetings can be boring. Most of us have sat through a day or two of 9-5 meetings that lose our interest and make it hard to concentrate or retain the information we are there to learn. But who said that meetings had to be this way? Why not spice it up or better yet-get out of the boardroom for a bit! Here are some ways to increase attendee participation, retention of information and, have some FUN!

The King and Prince Golf Course

  • Team Building Activities: Create a scavenger hunt around town or around the resort. If you are planning a destination meeting or convention, this is a great way for participants to tour the area and connect with other participants at the same time. No time for a scavenger hunt? Save a little time for a fun game during the day. Our favorite is “Minute to Win It”.
  • Sample The Local Cuisine:  For small meetings, we recommend that you go off property once for lunch or dinner. Ask the resort’s sales team or concierge to give you some recommendations on area restaurants. Our recommendations for St. Simons Island are Crabdaddys, Delaney’s Bistro and Southern Soul Barbeque.
  • Hit The Golf Course:  Spend the morning at the local golf course (or, if you are at The King and Prince, head out to The King and Prince Golf Course). Create a little competition and have a tournament. If you don’t have time for a full 18 holes, cut it down to 9. Either way, the fresh air will do you good.
  • Get In Touch With Your Inner Chef: Spice things up for your attendees with a cooking demonstration from a local chef. It might get their creative juices flowing and the best part? You get to taste the finished product.
  • Create Some Friendly Competition: Put together a game of softball or volleyball. Give the winners a trophy and bragging rights for a year! Next year, they can fight to keep the title. It will give everyone something to look forward to for next year and a little friendly competition is good.
