This place is a historical gem. But if history isn't your thing enjoy the nature and beauty. Very walkable area and bike paths everywhere.

Stopped by on the way home after vacationing at Saint Simons Island. Took the tour of the historic district. Very well done. Guide was knowledgeable. "Train ride" was pleasant. Looking forward to returning at a future date to explore in detail.

This is one on the most beautiful places to walk and relax. Walking under the big oaks and visiting the old homes is something every one that comes to the island needs to do. Just wonderful!

If you are anywhere in the area of Jekyll Island it is a must see. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous the history runs so deep that even if you aren’t a history buff you will be amazed.

Didn't see this comimg, but this was a fascinating place to visit. The place was a great look back to the early 1900's. The trolly tour was really reasonable, and our guide was excellent. Well worth the time and investment in a trolly tour.

Love visiting this place every year. Everything looked great well maintained and enjoyed Friday night of the shrimp and grits festival despite the heat.

Yes. They have sidewalks that are great for getting around all the historic bldgs. Not sure if the carriage would be accessible, it was hard for us to get in those.
