Perhaps the most important historical legacy of the island—and the whole Georgia coast—is its unique and essential ecosystem. The state passed an act in 1970 to protect the area’s iconic marshlands, recognizing them as a “vital natural resource system” for the survival of marine life and wildlife. Today, you can explore and appreciate the environment in numerous

ways, including dolphin cruises, fishing charters, kayak tours, and other ecoadventures. Or perhaps you’d prefer to revel in the area’s nature out on the beach, riding a bicycle or walking your dog, as you enjoy the sand, surf, shells, and sea birds. However you decide to enjoy St. Simons Island, come so that you too can become a part of its rich history.
