In a way, St. Simons Island is somewhat of a second home. I lived in Savannah for two years before going to Toccoa Falls College. I always find a way to come back to the coast every year. I just can’t go too long without visiting this really special island. We always used it as a base when visiting other islands on the coast of Georgia.
Best selling author Eugenia Price, who was also a mentor to me, called this island home for many years. And this was the hardware store she frequented often. One of her best-loved series is the St. Simons Trilogy. Read those books and you will not only get a taste of the founding of coastal Georgia, you’ll want to visit this island.
