Self guided driving tour of Christmas lights is fabulous. However, park your vehicle and walk around to really enjoyed the Jekyll Island club and cottages decorated for the holidays.

Jekyll Island, Georgia Self Guided Holiday Light Show Tour

This (the Christmas Holiday Season) is the only time of year I'm aware of when the lines of traffic across the causeway to Jekyll Island GA crawl for the entire, multi-mile trek to the island. Why?

Thousands of drivers descend on the island to see the 12-days of Xmas self-guided light show. Here's some pix of what you see on this driving tour.

The live-oak trees are magnificent and the "cottages" are gorgeous. Paved walkways wind through the lush landscaping.

My husband and I went for our first carriage ride on Jekyll island last night. We are locals and never thought about taking a ride. A dear friend booked it for our anniversary and I can honestly say we really enjoyed it. It was very interesting to learn so much more about the history of the island from our driver Danielle. She was very friendly and made the ride beyond what we expected. It was a pleasure and I would recommend this outing to anyone.

Makes for a wonderful bike ride or walk. The houses and other buildings nestled in amongst the oaky covered in Spanish moss are just beautiful.

Nice to walk around and see the old buildings and read about the history of the island. Highlights are the chapel and with its Tiffany stained glass, the narrated tour with in-house visits and the historic hotel.

We had a lovely time walking around this area & seeing how the rich lived back in the early 1900's. The Jekyll Island Club was amzaing.

The trolley tour guide was excellent at describing the history of the cottages and other life around the area; we really enjoyed the Indian Mound Cottage tour.

We rented bikes and spent a couple of hours exploring this area. Totally worth it! We loved the quiet, park-like setting and the beautiful buildings. We would have loved to have eaten at The Wharf, but it was very busy by the time we arrived. Plan ahead - they do not take reservations. Nice to get away from the commercialized parts of the island!

We toured the historic district via the tram tour, which was outstanding. You truly get to see every bit of the area and the guide was excellent. You get over the ear listening devices so there is no issue hearing. You get to go inside one home, Indian Mound. When we go back we will definitely walk around on our own a little more, but the tram is an excellent way to learn all about the history of this unique location.
