It’s been two years since we first fell in love with the Golden Isles of Georgia.  Our first experience was on St Simons Island when we visited the King and Prince Resort.  From the food to the Spanish moss, we were hooked. And now we’ve gotten to explore another of the Golden Isles:  Jekyll Island. […]

Echo Restaurant and the Best Thing We Ever Ate

Before we had kids we’d relax each night by watching HGTV or the Food Network and dream about renovating our kitchen or maybe dining out every night.  And then kids happened and we realized that we’d rather build with blocks and eat grilled cheese sandwiches.  But then we travel and are immediately reminded that there […]

The King and Prince Resort: can we just live here?

When we first heard about the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort, we’d never heard of St Simons Island, Georgia.  To us, the Georgia coast consisted of Savannah and maybe Tybee Island… wait, is that in Georgia?  Oh yes, it is.  Anyways, we peeked at it and were like, wow, um, the beach is […]
