St Marys, Georgia, founded in 1787, is a historic town just north of Florida that has a population of around 18,000 residents. The town is known as the ‘gateway’ to Cumberland Island, which is the largest of Georgia’s barrier islands and is home to feral horses and famous ruins. In addition to the ferry to Cumberland, the downtown area is home to numerous shops, museums, inns, and restaurants. After a day of exploring this quaint town, the waterfront is a relaxing place to watch the shrimp boats and see a beautiful sunset.
