Overview

Across a six-mile causeway, this barrier island paradise was once the exclusive playground of the very rich at the turn of the century. Converted to a state park in 1947, 33 structures have been restored in the 250-acre historic district as museums, art galleries, shops, and restaurants along with the grand Jekyll Island Club Hotel. Marvels of wealth and architecture, the magnificent winter homes of Rockefeller, Morgan, Aster, Pulitzer, Vanderbilt, Macy and Goodyear are open to the public. The island offers family-friendly escapes with nature trails, golf, tennis, camping and 10 miles of beach. It's a rewarding step back in time.
