We also visited The Maritime Center which documents life as a Coast Guardsman of the 1940s. The exhibits at The Maritime Center were very hands-on and informative, not only of the Coast Guard Station, but also of the wildlife and plant life of the area and the impact of World War II on St. Simons Island.
Two aspects of St. Simons that I was absolutely delighted to observe were the moss draped oaks that lined the streets and the wide southern porches so typical in this area.
