It is a beautiful, interesting place, but with the way it has been restructured, it can be difficult to get to a specific location, especially if you have trouble walking long distances.

Good for ages 11+; younger children would be likely to find walking and reading markers boring. However, look into some of the guided tours.

Tour lasts about 1.5 hrs and takes you by all the houses in the historic district. We got to tour 2 of the houses and found our guide to be very informative.

Took the trolley tour and learn all about the area. They took us in 2 houses and gave us the background information of the district. Take a bottle of water as it is 1.5 hr tour.

We are glad we took time to see the historic district, we found it to be very interesting. We only had time to ride through the area but well worth the time!

We stayed on St. Simon Island and visited Jekyll Island for the day. Loved it. I would stay here next time. Plenty to do and less crowded. Nicer places to eat.

Walking around and seeing sights, absolutely! They do have some shops, but I'm not sure about lunch. They have some snack shops, but no actual restaurant.
