Georgia coast mapGeorgia beaches are on your mind?

Then check out some of the best places for lazing the summer away at places like the Cumberland Island National Seashore, St. Mary's, Tybee and Jekyll Island off the coast of Savannah...

Also don't miss the state's network of swimming pools, lake beaches, and state parks that provide more places to keep cool throughout a long, hot summer in Georgia.

In fact, one of the state's top-rated sandy beaches is nowhere near the ocean -- but in John Tanner State Park about 60 miles inland from Atlanta. Peachy? You bet.

Have fun!

DID YOU KNOW? Georgia beaches fun facts:

• St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Historic Brunswick make up the Golden Isles of Georgia.

• Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? No, Jekyll Island was less-interestingly named by British General James Oglethorpe in honor of his friend, Sir Joseph Jekyll, in 1734.

• Although it still retains its historic charm, the St. Simons Island lighthouse saw its last full-time keeper in 1950, when it became fully automated.

• Unlike Florida's reputation for tropical storms, the neighboring coast of Georgia has not experienced a major hurricane since the late 1890s.

St Marys Rock Shrimp festival, held every year in October, celebrates the special kind of shrimp found in Georgia’s coastal waters. The delicious rock shrimp looks like a tiny lobster and its taste is somewhere between shrimp and lobster.
