Where Is the Best Getaway From Atlanta?

Atlanta’s energy and opportunity mean that there’s always something to do in the city, but sometimes, you just need to get away for a while and relax. When you are looking for a getaway from Atlanta, you probably want something the exact opposite of the city. We know just the place: St. George Island. Soft sand and a relaxed, beachy atmosphere make this island the perfect place to take a break for a week or two!

Do you want an inside look on all the things to do and see on out island? We created our Things to Do page just for you! This way, you can save hours of planning time for your getaway from Atlanta. We believe you shouldn’t be wasting time researching, so we did it for you. Now, you can spend your time on what’s important: making memories. 

3 Reasons Why St. George Island Is the Best Getaway From Atlanta

Relaxing Getaway

What’s more relaxing than falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves and waking up each morning to beach views? Our quiet island is one of the best spots to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. During our many days of warm weather, you can soak up the sun on the beach or your private pool. Or, you can hike along the St. George Island State Park nearly any time of the year! Best of all, you can get away from everyday life easier than ever during your time on SGI. 

Never Crowded

Even in the peak season, St. George Island is never crowded. Unlike Atlanta, you’ll never have to sit in hours of traffic or fight through a crowd. It’s refreshing! Our island was never built up by developers, so it’s one of the last true pieces of the Gulf Coast left to experience. You might have to wait for a table at a restaurant during our busy season, but you’ll never have trouble finding a spot on the beach

Everything You Need

Sometimes, staying on an island can deter you because of the lengths you’ll have to go to enjoy all the activities during your vacation. Well, don’t worry, we have everything right here! You are more than welcome to leave the island if you’d like to experience any of the attractions in Apalachicola, but you can do all your shopping and enjoy countless activities right here. We have amazing restaurants, outdoor activities, shops, grocery stores, and more right on the island.
