Coastal Areas to Visit
Although the entire GA coast is very popular for Georgia beach house rentals and has an extremely beautiful shoreline, there are a few coastal towns that are a must-visit when vacationing in this southern state. Savannah has some of the most interesting history in the entire state. In this oldest city in Georgia, you’ll come across culture, arts, romance, and glamour. Visit the historic squares and see the landscape to understand why this is such a popular travel destination. Tybee Island and Jekyll Island are also wonderful destinations for Georgia Coast vacation rentals, as well as St. Mary’s at the southernmost tip of the coast.

To golf on one of the most beautiful courses, plan to go to Great Dunes in Jekyll Island
. For a bit of history, the Isaiah Davenport House Museum
in Savannah will show you how life was lived in the early 1800s.
When you are staying in Georgia beach vacation rentals, you must sample some of the local seafood. There are many great seafood restaurants with fresh, locally caught fish that you mustn’t pass up. Halyards in St. Simons Island serves fresh seafood, while The Half Shell, also on St. Simons, has seafood and an oyster bar as well. Skipper’s Fish Camp in Darien has great seafood in a more casual atmosphere. The Olde Pink House in Savannah serves seafood as well as being a steakhouse, offering more for their guests.

When visiting one of the wonderful coastal Georgia vacation rentals, great weather is a plus. The temperature usually stays in the 90s during the summer, with humidity in the air as well. There are the random days where the temperature soars over 100 degrees, with heat waves that have hit as high as 112 degrees Fahrenheit in the past. The water is a great way to escape the hot and humid temperatures. In the winter, the weather stays mild, usually dipping down into the 40s in the evening but staying in the 50s and 60s during the day. There is occasional snow in the winter, and the tropical weather brings storms and rain some days during the heat of the summer. The Georgia Coast usually receives around 45 to 75 inches of rain annually.
