It might be winter, but in the Brunswick area, the temperature typically doesn’t dip below 68 degrees – which means there are all kinds of adventures to be had all year long. Whether you want to spend time outdoors or stay inside, you won’t find it difficult to come up with fun things to do.
Here are a few ideas to put on your calendar this winter.
Head Over to Little St. Simons Island
Dodge the summer crowds and head out to this gem of the Golden Isles in January or February. The temperatures will still be mild enough for visitors to enjoy themselves outdoors and you’ll be able to see the beautiful beaches and seasonal wildlife without having to navigate the summer tourist crowds.
Go Camping on Jekyll Island
That’s right, we said camping. The mild weather in this region means you can enjoy camping all year round. And in fact, many people enjoy camping in the winter better than in the summer, when the weather is more agreeable and there are no mosquitoes to deal with. In fact, people enjoy winter camping on Jekyll Island so much that it’s actually a challenge to book a reservation before all the campsites are claimed. Enjoy the 18 acres of woodland and take advantage of their bicycle rentals so you can take a leisurely winter ride around the area.
Relax on the Beach
Even in the coldest months of winter, hanging out on the beach is still a favorite activity for Georgians. Try Sea Island, Great Dunes Park, East Beach, or the 15th Street Beach. You’ll also definitely want to spend an afternoon at Driftwood Beach – and bring a camera. The driftwood for which this beach was named will make you feel like you’re in a fantasy world.
Take a Ride on a Shrimp Boat
Be sure to make an advance reservation to get a spot on The Lady Jane, a refurbished shrimping boat certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to take on up to 49 passengers. On these trips, you get to sort through the seafood caught by the crew and learn all about these creatures, the ocean, and the process of shrimping. There’s a restroom, covered deck, and plenty of seating to make sure you are comfortable during the journey.
