Decatur Glassblowing

Disclaimer: I paid full price for this class, and these are my honest opinions.

9:00PM on a Sunday. Most people are either scrambling to finish their homework, getting ready for the week ahead, or already in bed.

REVIEW: The Georgia Sea Turtle Center

The Georgia Sea Turtle Center, located on Jekyll Island on the coast of Georgia, opened back in 2007. Not only is the center a rehabilitation facility and hospital for sea turtles, but it’s also an educational center raising awareness of the damage that has been done and steps we need to take in order to protect our environment. Mom and I were able to visit the center, and we genuinely enjoyed our time there. Although we did learn a lot about the different types of sea turtles and their life cycles, we also learned so much more about the environment in general. It truly was an eyeopening experience!

As you may or may not have heard, I won a contest! And not just any contest, but the St. Simon’s Food + Spirits Festival Contest where I was able to go and experience new things. Even though this happened two weeks ago, I am still in shock that I, Larissa, won a travel contest! The grand prize package included:

  • accommodations for three nights at the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort
  • 2 VIP passes to the St. Simon’s Island Food + Spirits Festival
  • 2 passes to the St. Simon’s Lighthouse Museum
  • 2 VIP passes to Jekyll Island, including the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, Jekyll Island Museum Tram Tour, all day bike rental, 18-hole round of golf, and more!

Since we were able to do so much, I’ve decided to do several different blog posts, to make sure I cover everything! Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, which we were able to stay at for three nights.  Continue reading “REVIEW: The King and Prince – Beach & Golf Resort”

5 Hidden Gems Found in South East U.S.

Here are five places in the south east United States that you may or may not have heard of before. In my opinion they are worth paying a visit!

I’ve been in the Southeast part of the U.S. for basically as long as I can remember. I’ve lived in Georgia. I went to school in North Carolina. I’ve visited Florida with my friends.

The smaller{er} places with places with personalities just as big as the larger cities? Ready to learn where to find some gems in the southeast? Let’s go!
