The Golden Isles of Georgia

The Golden Isles of Georgia

The discovery of the Golden Isles of Georgia dates back to the 1500s when Spanish explorers came seeking gold. Gold ore was not found, but what they did find was a far different treasure in wide expanses of golden marshes, brilliant golden sun, and a sunset glow they had never before experienced in their travels. Hence the name Golden Isles, an equally descriptive name almost 500 years later. The Golden Isles are now one of the ultimate resort escapes in America.

During our driving tour of the island, we will stop at Fort Frederica, one of the largest and most expensive forts ever built by the British in North America. Following lunch on our own, we will have a self-guided visit to beautiful Hofwyl Plantation. The home presents a classic example of Lowcountry architecture and sweeping views of the Altamaha Delta. We will then depart for Savannah, the location of tonight's lodging. Dinner is at our leisure.
