"Kingsland & St. Marys, Georgia" Kingsland by noidiotsplease
Kingsland Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 5 photos
Several years ago a friend of mine moved to Kingsland in Camden County. I have since been there and to St. Marys, its neighboring waterfront sister, on a couple of occasions, and found it to be an area in transformation. On one hand, both are quaint little Southern towns with quiet neighborhoods and old-fashioned “Main Street” downtowns. That said, these otherwise unassuming towns also straddle a very strategic location; they sit just across the border from Florida, separated from each other by a busy six-lane Interstate 95 that funnels hordes of sun-seeking tourists to and from vacationlands to the south. The towns themselves are linked together by a commercial highway that sports roadside accommodations, restaurants, and service stations, some doubling as Georgia “welcome centers” with their maps, trinket souvenirs, and “cheap” gas.
In addition to being a draw for tourist dollars, Interstate 95 also benefits the residents of these towns by providing quick access to the Jacksonville metropolitan area and its many employment and recreational offerings. Speaking of employment, the Navy’s Kings Bay nuclear submarine base provides additional fuel for Camden County's economic engine. For those interested in visiting the area, it is worth noting that St. Mary’s also has a quaint area along the St. Mary’s River waterfront offering views of Amelia Island, FL across the way. From here, tourists may be interested in taking a ferry to nearby Cumberland Island National Seashore. Cumberland Island is known for its unspoiled beaches and wild horses, but I have not been there myself.
