The Rockerfellow Cottage and the Club House really show you how the Super rich lived...amazing The Tour is well worth it. It will be quite someting to see when more "cottages are done.

Best way to get a good overview of the historic district and why this island even existed as it did in its hay day is to take the trolly tour avialble from the museum center. The tour is 90 minutes long and costs $16- per person. It's very informative. Included are 2 stops to visit the homes the residents or members lived in.
Top it off with lunch at Courtyard at the Crane. Delightful day.

Adjacent to the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, this is where all the little shops are. The bookstore has a nice assortment of books about the Golden Isles.

The tour was quite inclusive and allowed entry to several of the millionaires' mansions from the island's glory days.

We were fortunate enough to visit right after Christmas when the decorations were still up. It was a wonderful experience to see the homes decorated for the holidays.
