Saint Marys Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 131 photos

This is an interesting destination in its own right, but the main reason you will end up here is to take the boat to Cumberland Island - unless you are in the Navy and being stationed and the neighboring King Bay Naval Base. St Marys is situated on the north bank of the St Marys River and is Georgia's last bastion on its southeastern boundary with the Sunshine State - Florida - to the south. The town sprawls towards I-95 to the west, but it is the old core along the river that is the most interesting area to see.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wonderful historical core
  • Cons:Forgettable western fringes
  • In a nutshell:Introduction to Coastal Georgia
