THE FOUR BAR­RIER IS­LANDS that com­prise Ge­or­gia’s Golden Isles are St. Si­mons, Lit­tle St. Si­mons, Sea Is­land and Jekyll Is­land. The main­land city of Brunswick is also part of the re­gion. AV­ENUE OF THE OAKS, lined with tow­er­ing 160-year-old trees, serves as the dra­matic en­trance to Sea Is­land Golf Club. THE RITZ THE­ATRE in Brunswick’s Old Town was built in 1899 to host op­eras. To­day, it’s home to all kinds of per­for­mances. DRIFT­WOOD BEACH (in the pho­to­graph at left) on Jekyll Is­land is a pop­u­lar site for self­ies and wed­dings. THE WORLD WAR II HOME FRONT MU­SEUM is sched­uled to open this month at the His­toric Coast Guard Sta­tion on St. Si­mons Is­land. It will tell the story of how this re­gion op­er­ated three fa­cil­i­ties — a ship­yard, an air­ship base and naval radar train­ing — dur­ing the war.
