Ocean Ports of Call

Brunswick - USA, Georgia Highlights:
Jekyll & St Simons Islands, Mansions
Founded in 1771, Brunswick in southeastern Georgia lies on St. Simons Sound and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. From here you can visit the nearby Golden Isles including Jekyll & St Simons Islands. Jekyll Island was the winter home of America's rich and famous for 56 years. Vanderbilts and Rockefellers, Morgans and Astors, Macys, Pulitzers, and Goodyears all closed their Fifth Avenue mansions and retreated to the warmth and serenity of this island. Here, they built elegant "cottages," played golf and tennis, and socialized. In 1947, the State of Georgia purchased the entire island for a mere $650,000. You can view these spectacular millionaire "cottages," ornate mansions, providing an intriguing view into the era of The Great Gatsby.

On St. Simons Island, John and Charles Wesley preached under still standing oaks, Aaron Burr took refuge after his duel with Alexander Hamilton, and naturalist John J. Audubon studied and recorded the native wildlife. Visit Christ Church, and pass by the St. Simons lighthouse and famous Cloister Hotel. Ft Frederica (dating from 1736) was the southernmost British outpost in North America and is now a national monument.
