Amelia Island, St Simon or Jekyll Island in January?

Jump to last reply

We have 4 days to stop somewhere between south Florida (where we spend Christmas with my parents) and home in NY. We have kids ages 4 years and 8 months, and we like nature and beaches (even if it's cold). We do this trip every year. Last year we stopped at Hunting Beach State Park in SC, which was wonderful, the year before was Amelia Island, one year was Jekyll Island, and another was Cumberland Island, staying in St. Mary's. As you can tell, we really like this part of the country!

Now with 2 kids, we'd like somewhere with great beaches, a cute small town and ideally a nice kid-friendly inn or a hotel/condo with our own kitchen.

We're thinking of either northeastern Florida (Amelia Island again, and also visit Little Talbot Island) or southern Georgia. Maybe St. Simon's Island, for somewhere new, or somewhere we haven't even considered yet. Does St. Simon's have good beaches that you can't drive on? We considered Sapelo Island, staying on the mainland, but don't want to be stuck on the island all day with an 8-month-old if the weather turns bad.

Any suggestions?
