Atlantans do not have to cross the Florida-Georgia state line to enjoy an Atlantic Ocean beach. They also do not have to give up one ounce of luxury either. Just head down to coastal Georgia, just south of Savannah, and find the hidden gem at Jekyll Island Resort.
Bring the whole family for fun days at the beach or nearby waterpark and treat them to spectacular dinners at night in either casual or wonderfully dressed up environments. Jekyll Island Resort was originally built as a hunting "lodge" for the richest and most powerful families a the turn-of-the-century. It has of course been updated and offers every modern convenience, but it's charm is in the old world feel of the place. It is like no other place, with luxury touches everywhere but with a homie, more traditional feel.
Right now, this legendary resort is offering a fantastic Fall travel deal. From now through November 30, 2013, guests can receive 25% off any room or suite which means rooms are under $200! The weather is cool and crisp at night but still warm enough for pool or ocean play during the day for the most part. And since it is only about 5 hours from Atlanta, Jekyll Island Resort makes for an easy weekend getaway.
