Saint Simon Island, Georgia

Updated: Sep 19, 2021

St. Simon is just a little over 5 hours from North Atlanta. It is such a peaceful place where you can see much sea life at the beach. we would find hermit crabs every day!



On I-16 you can stop here for gas and they have a petting zoo. Click here to view some pictures. There are not many stops on I-16 so make sure you have used the bathroom, gotten gas and food.


If driving south on I95 you will pass the city of Darien. These are some good places to eat near there:

Captain Joes

Skippers Fish Camp

Fish Dock

Mudcat Charlies

This is a great vrbo we stayed at. It has 3 bedrooms and a room with a separate room with a pull out couch. (1 king, 2 double, 4 bunk beds a pull out couch on the first floor!) It is located right next to the pool in the complex, and if you bring fishing poles you can fish in the pond by the front door!




You can use Shipt and Instacart on the Island.
