“Take the trolley tour”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Getting on the island costs $6.00, but your ticket is good for 24 hours. On Day one take the trolley tour and check out 8800 square foot "cottages"......the guides provide great commentary.
The tour will prepare day 2 when you return with your bikes and investigate the historic district up close and personal. Try lunch on the Jekyll wharf (Georgia shrimp and beer) or at Fins on east Beach Road near the convention center (shrimp and grits---really!)

“Our favorite Historic District”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

We love walking around the old historical district and checking out all the former homes of millionaire's row. We loved the museum and having a drink in the Jekyll Island hotel.

“Great place to send family time if you like bike riding/beach exploring”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

It has been an annual thing, since my kids were young. I take them and their bikes (or you can rent them) and we bike the island on safe biking trails. We take a picinic lunch and stop on the beach. It can be a very relaxing day and done for only the price of crossing the causeway bridge, for this single mom, The kids love exploring the beach and the history of the island. We use our imagination of who love in the beautiful old beach "cottages" that are mansions to us. We almost always spot dolphins. They still do this trip as adults.

“Step Back in Time”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

The grounds of the Millionaire's Village are great to see how those wealthy folks of the late 1800's relaxed. The "cottages" would not be out of place in Bar Harbor or the Hamptons. Very well preserved and some are open for tours during holiday season.
