ESCAPE TO JEKYLL ISLAND FOR
REDUCED RATES AND WINTER ACTIVITIES
Jekyll Island, Ga. – Winter is a perfect time to visit Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island, as the oceanfront resort offers reduced rates and the area boasts mild temperatures and a host of island activities. Throughout the month of January and February, take advantage of the special “Winter Wonderland” offering, with rates starting at $109 per night. Extended stay rates are also available for guests who would like to visit for at least 30 days.
Hotel guests will appreciate the oceanfront accommodations, quarter-mile of private beach, temperatures which fluctuate between the high 60s and low 40s, and offering of resort and island activities.
In January and February, visitors may participate in the popular Island Treasures event, a hide-and-seek style game in which guests search for handmade glass globes. In the early 1900s, east coast fishermen used hollow glass balls, or floats, on their nets as markers. Occasionally, the floats would break loose and wash ashore for lucky beachcombers to find and keep. Collecting these rare, highly sought after glass floats became a hobby in the 1950s. Today, artists from across the country are selected to create one-of-a-kind glass floats for the annual Island Treasures event and lucky finders get to take the keepsakes home as a memory of their time on the island. Each orb is marked with a tag, which can be exchanged for a certificate of authenticity, and artist biography for their one-of-a-kind globe.
In addition to Island Treasures, ice skating by the ocean at Jekyll Island’s Skating Village, located next to the resort, is a favorite winter activity in the area. The fun continues at the Holiday Inn Resort, which offers winter programming organized by the resort’s own activity coordinator. Throughout the beach’s off-season, activities include bingo, trivia nights, movie nights, off-island excursions, golf and mini-golf tournaments, coffee meet and greets, weekly receptions, and more.
