OLLI at UNF Partners with Road Scholar: 
The Best of St. Simons, Sapelo, Jekyll - An Island Hopping Adventure 


Do you love history and ecology? Go "island hopping" to experience firsthand the rich history and ecology of three barrier islands, from Civil War-era forts and lighthouses to the lavish millionaire cottages.Lush homes, gorgeous sandy beaches, culinary delights and fascinating cultural and maritime histories combine for a magical immersion learning experience. 



Prepare for your field trip to Jekyll with lunch at the Jekyll Island Club hotel and learn how the island was made into a winter retreat for families including the Rockefellers and Pulitzers. Explore St. Simons battlegrounds, evocative churches, lighthouse and beaches and then board the Lady Jane shrimp vessel and identify the catch of the day from a drag net. After a ferry ride to Sapelo Island, join a local expert to learn the stories of the island.
