East Beach, Driftwood Beach – dog friendly beaches in Georgia

Part of my road trip to Orlando, Florida included a stop at East Beach on St. Simons Island just east of Brunswick, Georgia. The plan was to check in to the (dog-friendly) Red Roof Inn then spend the afternoon at the beach. Surprisingly, that’s exactly what we did! Here are photos from that day. Also, we had just enough time to catch a sunset at Driftwood Beach. This is on Jekyll Island. I didn’t know exactly what to expect because this little addition was unplanned, but wow what a beach! It’s not for sunbathing or surfing. It’s more about marveling and photographing. Two points I feel like need to be said… 1. do NOT climb in the bushes at Driftwood Beach. I stepped a few in before we left and immediately found 5 or 6 ticks on my legs. 2. It cost $8 per car to enter Jekyll Island. Not much, but good to know beforehand.
