WHERE TO GO
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.
