July 4th on Jekyll Island

Earlier this month we crashed my parents beach vacation on Jekyll Island! They booked the Jekyll Ocean Club for a week, and we made plans to overlap with them over a weekend. But when I realized they would be there over July 4th (and we couldn’t check in to our room until the 5th) I asked if we could crash with them for a night, so we wouldn’t miss all the Independence Day festivities. Thankfully, the Ocean Club is an all-suites resort, so there was plenty of room for us to stay in their living room for a night!

Most of you know Jekyll Island is one of our favorite spots for a weekend getaway, but this was our first time being on the island for July 4th. The place was hopping – in fact, we’ve never seen so many people on Jekyll! And it quickly became obvious that they all knew something we didn’t: Jekyll Island goes all out for the 4th of July! There was a parade, a kids event with dozens of bouncy houses, a beautiful fireworks display, and the Jekyll Island Club Resort property was completely decked out in red, white, and blue.

With so many people enjoying the island at the same time, the wait for some of our meals was much slower than we’re used to. So we ended up eating several times at Eighty Ocean Kitchen and Bar right inside the Jekyll Ocean Club. And those meals were some of our favorites! Plus it was so convenient to walk up from the beach or pool and just throw on a coverup to eat.

We spent a lot of time at our hotel pool, listened to live music at The Wharf, walked around the Jekyll Island Club Resort property, Anderson road his bike all the way around the island and got stuck in a torrential downpour that my dad had to go rescue him from, walked on the beach, found the biggest spider we’ve ever seen at the old Horton House ruins, watched the summer storms roll in from our balcony, and worked out at the gym, because we ate A LOT of good food. ­čÖé We planned to go to Summer Waves on our last day, but the weather didn’t cooperate, so we’ll save that for our next visit. We’ll certainly be back!!!
