From early settlers to America’s social elite to today’s young explorers, the story of this Georgia barrier island has captured imaginations for generations. Strolling along the wide, cabbage palm and oak-lined streets is a pleasant way to check out the Colonial, antebellum and Victorian homes, several of which are now inns. The best way to explore Jekyll Island is by bicycle. More than 20 miles of well-marked paths lead to majestic forests, saltwater marshes, wide-open beaches, historic ruins and opulent cottages. Stop at Driftwood Beach, known for its driftwood trees and a popular spot for photographers.
