Cumberland Island National Seashore is the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia offering visitors over 17 miles of secluded, white, sandy beaches. Take the short ferry ride out to this unspoiled island and you'll feel you have stepped back in time. On this National Seashore, it is the animals that rule and people are only visitors. Wild horses run free through the marshes and wind swept dunes, while the inland forests shelter deer, alligator, armadillo, and mink.
Visitors can also explore the ruins of the once magnificent Carnegie Estate, "Dungeoness". To make reservations for the Cumberland Queen ferry, call 912-882-4335.
St. Marys Submarine Museum
Military buffs and people just fascinated by adventures undersea won't want to miss the St. Marys Submarine Museum. Both residents and visitors to Kingsland and St. Marys are fascinated by the local Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base, the Atlantic coast home of Trident nuclear submarines, and the museum is the perfect way to learn more about how these amazing underwater machines work. The museum houses more than 3,500 items, including models, photographs, written histories, artifacts, and a working periscope, through which visitors may view the surrounding area.
