Cumberland Island National Seashore is an absolute gem off Georgia’s coast. Accessible by ferry from St. Mary’s, Georgia, Cumberland Island sports natural beauty, historical sites, pristine beaches, maritime forests, as seen in this photo, and abundant wildlife, including the famous wild horses. Cumberland is the largest of Georgia’s barrier islands and is not far from the Florida border. You can take a 4.5 mile self-guided tour of the southern end of the island or a guided van tour that will take you to the northern end as well. I took the walking tour last April on the south end with my sister and niece and, though tiring, it was awesome! We were proud of ourselves for having a good hike around this beautiful and special place.
