Pier + Lighthouse

Touring the Village in Escapada

Sometimes the best treasures are right in your backyard! Earlier this month, I spent an afternoon reconnecting with our enchanted island.  Prepped for a day of walking around St. Simons Island, I opted to wear this long sleeve, stylish and comfortable Layla dress from Escapada. The morning began beautifully.  The locals were out walking their dogs, grabbing their morning coffee, and opening their shops.

We started our day by heading to the St. Simons Lighthouse Museum and the A.W. Jones Heritage Center. You can take a tour of the historic lighthouse and keeper’s dwelling, both built in 1872. We recommend climbing all 129 steps to the top of the lighthouse! It’s a bit of a jaunt to get up, but the views are to die for.

Next, we hopped aboard the Lighthouse Trolley for a tour of St. Simons Island! If you’re looking for something fun to do — try their trolley tours of the Island or their boating excursions.

We finished our mini tour of St. Simons by heading to the Pier and watching local fisherman reel in their catch!

    I love this lighthouse (I love all lighthouses haha)! I’m going to Sea Island, GA for the holidays and I can’t wait! Georgia is beautiful.
