Historic Kingsland Kingsland, Georgia

Kingsland and the surrounding area have so much to offer - both in history and natural beauty. You'll find it very easy to spend a week exploring the sights and still want to come back for more.

Kingsland's Historic Downtown
Rich in history, the city's downtown district has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A streetscaping project has returned the downtown to the charming look it had in the 1920's and 1930's, and visitors can wander the bricked sidewalks in search of a great bargain on Antique Row.

Fairs, Festivals, and Events
No matter what time of year you visit, you'll always find great festivals and activities for the entire family to enjoy.

The Labor Day Catfish Festival, held in downtown Kingsland, is an annual event that features a parade, bicycle races, arts and crafts, big-name entertainment, the Catfish 5K Fun Run, and the Catfish Classic Golf Tournament (held at Laurel Island Links). But with a name like the "Catfish Festival," the main attraction has to be mouth-watering catfish prepared in a variety of southern styles. This popular festival has been named a "Top 20 Event in the Southeast" by the Southeast Tourism Society.
