Georgia's Golden Isles Bike Tour

April 4-9, 2021
April 11-16, 2021 

St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Savannah

Few regions in the United States pack in as much culture, history, and natural beauty as the Golden Isles of Georgia. This lovely part of the Georgia coast should not be rushed through by car. Rather it is best explored on bicycle, allowing you ample time to savor the unique southern hospitality, reflect upon their 300 years of fascinating history, and explore the many wild beaches, barrier islands, and famous marshlands.

This six-day tour starts in Savannah, GA (one night), and travels south to visit St. Simons Island (two nights) and Jekyll Island (two nights).
