A Fun-Filled Treasure Hunt for Kids on St. Simons Island - Family Traveller (USA)

Boasting an interesting history, entrancing culture, forgotten heroes and undiscovered towns and hamlets, a visit to Georgia’s Golden Isles is one of the richest experiences along the Atlantic coast. Georgian cultural elements—including songs, stories, dances, food and architecture—and other numerous factors define the area. But a family-friendly activity that’s perfect for any time of year, put treasure hunting on the to-do list. With seven famous tree spirits on public land around St. Simons Island, families can make a full day out of searching.
