Thursday, June 9th, 2016

1. Spend Fourth of July at the Island’s only beachfront Resort where you can enjoy the beach or one of our oceanfront pools.

2. Enjoy the Sunshine Festival, an Island tradition, complete with fireworks in the Pier Village on St. Simons- It’s a short trip from the Resort (1.2 miles) and a great opportunity to rent a bike from Ocean Motion or a golf cart from High Tides.
