St. Simons is located on St. Simons Island in Glynn County, Georgia. Both the community and the island are commonly considered to be one location, known simply as “St. Simons Island”, or locally as “The Island”.
St. Simons Island is one of Georgia’s renowned Golden Isles (along with Sea Island, Jekyll Island, and privately owned Little St. Simons Island). It is also the largest of the Golden Isles. After being cultivated by English colonists for rice and cotton plantations, the island since the early 20th century has been developed as a resort community.
