On this week's episode of Georgia Traveler, it's off to Georgia's beautiful southern coast. St. Simons Island is the destination city where we explore mysterious tree spirits, historic Christ Church, colonial foundations at Fort Frederica and a lighthouse that dates to 1872. David Zelski shows us how millionaires once vacationed on Jekyll Island. Discover Georgia's first British outpost at Fort King George in Darien and follow Phil Proctor as he invades Brunswick's annual Stewbilee.
