I obviously love the village area of St. Simons Island as our real estate office, the buggie rental store and also our Beachcomber Snow company are all found there.  Now there is even more reason to make the Village and Pier area of St. Simons Island a must see to visitors to Glynn County.  The newly enhanced oceanside pool, mini putt-putt golf course and playground area are now open for business in Neptune Park. The St. Simons Island Casino is a popular gathering place for visitors to take a break in one of the rockers and watch the boats and ocean traffic go by or visit the island library and gather brochures and area info from the Visitors Information Center.  Many weddings and receptions   choose this lovely venue to enjoy the breathtaking ocean view and balmy breezes.  This island ...
