St. Simons Island has made its way onto The Huffington Post’s “10 Most Beautiful US Towns to Visit in in Fall.”
It’s the only southern city that made that list, which also includes:
- Avalon, California
- Port Townsend, Washington
- Hood River, Oregon
- Vail, Colorado
- Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
- Newport, Rhode Island
- Beacon and Woodstock, New York
- Stowe, Vermont
“How cool for Huffington Post to mention St. Simons Island in the midst of such iconic locations like Newport and Vail,” said Lauren Heart. She is the marketing manager at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort. “As residents of the area, to see SSI mentioned with these great destinations, we really feel a sense of pride in our community.”
St. Simons’ beautiful island and beaches aren’t the only things highlighted on the list.
Jekyll Island, Christ Church, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center and Massengale Park next to East Beach all received mentions. The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort also received an acknowledgement.
“We feel honored by this list and singled out as THE place to stay,” said Heart. “Our beachfront location makes us stand out, but it’s the genuine Southern hospitality of our staff that keeps our guests returning year after year.”
