This easily walk-able island is a great place to holiday due to its wonderful amenities and the natural beauty of the area. St. Simons has an interesting history; it was one of the first places where the Spanish missionaries landed and then set up a catholic church which remained in situ until the American Revolution. This is in evidence with the small ruins that have been left at the Fort Frederica National Monument which was constructed to dissuade the Spanish from attacking further. Christ Church, which is also on the island, is a wonderful relic from the days of John Harding and is a fascinating place to visit. The island is now home to a number of fantastic golf courses, restaurants and shops designed to please everyone, most are located around the Village area on the south of the island. If you are able to splurge on accommodation then The King and Prince Hotel is the prime choice and has been called one of the best hotels in America. It is right on the water with the higher rooms offering remarkable views over the bay and has a number of restaurants in the surrounding area.
