    Jekyll Island, GA is a great place to vacation. It's a State Park so there are restrictions on development. Everything is two stories or less. There is a small waterpark on one end of the island(Summer Waves). You can stay at the Jekyll Island Club (that used to be the summer vacation house for those belonging in that "club" such as Vanderbilt, Morgan, and other early 20th century tycoons that had Jekyll as a private island). Or you can stay at a hotel or beach resort or rent out a house. Very pretty w/ knarled trees w/ spanish moss, curving walkways in historic district(cute local shops), bike paths parallel to the beach. They have a resturant or two, one mini-golf place. Its not crowded. No touristy restuarants or "Wings" shops, etc. They have pier to go fishing, and part of the island is the park, where you can go camping. And you can always leave the island to go to Brunswick, GA (mainland) for dinner out, movies, etc.

    As of July 28, Panama City has not been effected by the Deep Water oil spill. The Panama City Beach authorities are communicating with government agencies monitoring the spill. The sand is white, and there is no scent of oil in the air. The environmental factors are subject to change, so it is best to contact the county's chamber of commerce before you visit. The following is an update by an Away expert on the effects of the oil spill in different regions of the Gulf of Mexico: http://bit.ly/dj87T5

    Daufuskie Island, SC is the "Mackinac Island,Mi" of the south! A lot more low key with fewer tourists and more private resorts but the town is public and very historic if you have ever read Pat Conroys books. This is a getaway place,accessible by boat only. Where Mackinac has plenty to see and do (Really a state park) Daufuskie is very low key, not built up, and mostly privately owned. I have been to both and it is like apples to oranges. Both are worth seeing in their own rights. You may also want to check out Cumberland Island, Ga where wildlife out numbers the humans. Little St Simons Island, Ga which takes only 32 people at a time and is by boat only also.
