Jekyll Island, Georgia

Jekyll Island is a wonderful warm haven for the winter weary. Nature provides the setting, you set the pace. Walk the beach, go for a bike ride, play golf, take a history tour, ride horses on the beach, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful view.

Jekyll Island is an island off the coast of the U.S. state of Georgia, in Glynn County; it is one of the Sea Islands and one of the Golden Isles of Georgia. The island measures about 7 miles long by 1.5 miles wide, and has wide, flat beaches with sand packed hard enough for easy walking or biking.

The island is covered with live oaks, Spanish moss, and palmetto. It is the perfect place to get away and enjoy life. Go stick your toes in the sand and pretend your a kid again.

Jekyll Island was once the playground of millionaires. Jekyll Island was the location of a meeting in November, 1910 of group of bankers who meet there representing about one-sixth of the world's wealth. This was one of the worlds strangest, most secret expedition in the history of American finance which gave birth of the present Federal Reserve System.

The Wanderer is the last documented ship to bring a cargo of slaves from Africa to the United States (on November 28, 1858).

When the Wanderer reached Jekyll Island, Georgia from Africa, approximately 409 of the enslaved Africans had survived. The federal government prosecuted the owner and crew, but failed to win a conviction, although there was outrage in the North about the slave ship.
