This is my happy place! We come down for a week every summer and there is just some refreshing about stepping out on the beach with virtually no one around.

Hi there!  I'm Beth Yarbrough, new member.  Jekyll is a favorite spot of mine - magical place.  My sister owns a home on St. Simons, which I also love dearly - and I sneak over to Jekyll at every opportunity.  I'm looking forward to being a part of the group.

The Jekyll Island Convention Center, the site of #The Southern C Summit has a commanding presence on the Atlantic Ocean. Billed as "The only oceanfront convention center on the east coast south of New Jersey," the location is totally inspiring. A great place for a meeting. Staff, amenable and accommodating.A true treasure.

I love Jekyll Island! when I was a child we always came  in the summer for family pinics at the South Dunes picnic area. I lived in Brunswick when I was very young. Even after moving away, when I was in the area, it was always my favorite place to come back to. It still is. I love Driftwood Beach. I would recommend Jekyll to everyone.

We had a staycation this past spring break on lovely Jekyll Island and it was one of our favorites!  We rode bikes, rented a Red Bug motorcar, played "real" golf and lots (and lots) of putt-putt!  We also relaxed on the beach, played in the sand and had lots of quality time.  Can't wait to do it again!
