America’s Favorite Beach TownMay 2014

No. 1 St. Simons Island, GA

Lined with white sand and live oaks, the biggest of Georgia’s Golden Isles WON the beach-town contest for offering a triple threat of Southern Charm, Serenity, and Affordability. It’s not hard, after all, to get hotel rates here under $200 a night.  St. Simons Inn, for instance, overlooks a 19th-century lighthouse, while the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort, a former dance club, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. St. Simons also scored well with readers for its good picnicking spots, events like the 4th of July Sunshine Festival, and for romance. You two might rent a bike or catch a Trolley to tour the area’s plantations
