Jekyll Island Guide to Revitalization -
Jekyll Island is a great family vacation destination, especially for budget-minded families. During the past few years, the Jekyll Island Authority has been planning an extensive revitalization project to update some of the island's facilities.
One of these projects - the brand new Hampton Inn and Suites - is already in place and receiving guests. Other upcoming projects are listed below, and Jekyll Island Family Adventures will continue to provide our readers with fresh information as construction continues.
Best way to stay abreast of ongoing events and construction updates? Subscribe to our Turtle-Gram Blog. Construction projects are notorious for falling behind schedule, and you, as a Jekyll Island visitor, need to be kept in the loop as to what's happening so you can plan accordingly.
