Hello! It’s me, the redhead and I would like to invite you over to our house today for a Lazy Summer Tour…
crazy lazy days of Summer are upon us, and all I plan to do is bask in the sun and sip fresh brewed iced tea,with little lemon wedges on the side of the glass.
If you’re looking for the perfect getaway, you don’t have to look any further than St. Simons Island on the coast of the great state of Georgia! Since moving to Georgia, I’ve been amazed at how many gorgeous vacation spots there are within driving distance, and St. Simons Island and The King and Prince Resort top them all! Surrounded by white sand beaches and live oaks, St. Simons Island is the biggest of Georgia’s Golden Isles. It’s like going to the Bahamas but you don’t need a passport or to win the lottery. 😉
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought it would fun to list 10 Must Do’s at the King and Prince Resort for couples, or really anyone, to experience! I recently had the privilege of touring this gorgeous resort and I can’t wait to share with you some of my favorite things to do.
First, a little background on The King and Prince. The historic King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort (circa 1935) recently experienced a long-awaited renovation. It’s a fresh, contemporary take on the relaxed easy-going vibe that visitors have come to love about the King and Prince!
The newest member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection, a carefully selected series of the most delighted different and completely Southern hotels. The King and Prince is on the National Register of Historic Place and a member on Historic Hotels of America, shares a rich legacy of its place in American history for 79 years. Originally opened as a private dance club, friends of the owners coined its name, which befitted its regal atmosphere. The resort has maintained its reputation as an elegant and warm place to get-away throughout each decade.
Here are 10 things you must experience at the King and Prince for an experience you won’t forget!
We wanted a simple, fast, easy-to-use and reliable service. Those of us who use Linky Tools and know the owner/creator (Brent Riggs), realized he would be perfect for developing some kind of really easy to use “follower” system. So we contacted him, and he loved the idea.
