This was my first year coming as a mother. I found the historic district to be very family friendly. My toddler was able to walk around on the shell paved sidewalks and run in the plush grass. We walked every day while on vacation in this area. The shops are quaint and fun to browse around in. The atmosphere is... More

The entire grounds are well kept and the restored building are very nice. I see something interesting every time I visit. The best time is early morning in the spring and fall. Best visited on a bike or walking.

Wow this is a true historic district. It was so beautiful and serene, even though it was 100 degrees out the trees provided plenty of shade and the soft breeze off the river helped. This by far was one of my favorite stops on Jekyll Island. My children even thought it was neat and enjoyed walking through the district.

This was the very BEST tour my wife and I have ever taken. First you get an hour and half instruction on how to ride a SEGWAY, smoothly and safely. Karen, the owner and instructor is exceptional. After reviewing a 15 minute safety movie, I really felt at 69 I could not do this…. Karen gave me all the instruction... More

Oh the lifestyle of the rich an famous. Having such luxury and nice and beautiful homes on a spectacular island must have been grand. It's nice to see how the past lived in different places. And this was most definitely was upscale.

Talk about reliving the glory days! Walk, bike, drive, or take the tour bus but be sure to explore the historic section of Jekyll Island. The homes are gorgeous and the history is rich (pardon the pun, I couldn't help myself)! What a beautiful slice of Heaven on earth; so glad we went!

Definitely take tour. We've been coming back to Jekyll since 1986 and it seems that we learn something new each time. We enjoy the shops which offer everything from books to ice cream to nick knacks. Remember that the shops were part of resort life so take your time and see how the rich and famous lived in contrast to... More
