Welcome to our wonderful Community.
Nestled in the middle of Georgia’s one-hundred-mile coastline, you’ll find that time passes at a more casual pace here. McIntosh is situated in a beautiful, unspoiled, ecological location that is virtually unrivaled in the state for the natural habitats that abound here. We truly are ‘Nature’s Favorite Coast!” The tidewaters here are actually the nursery of the ocean…tiny shrimp, crustaceans and all species of fish! Spring finds dozens of baby dolphins in the Itracoastal Waterway, learning to fish with their mothers and pods.
Our temperate climate has been a draw for centuries. Eco-tourism is very popular in our area, plus bird-watching, photography, hiking, biking, dolphin tours, fishing, kayaking, golfing at Sapelo Hammock, and more!
Even though we’re just 50 miles north of the Florida line, you’ll still experience all four seasons here, and we celebrate what each brings. Vibrant festivals held include a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Shellman Bluff, and the decades-old "Blessing of the Fleet" to honor the fishermen of the shrimping. Summer heralds the waterfront ‘Blues on the Bluff” – our Fourth of July celebration which draws large crowds for fun, music, entertainment and fireworks. The Darien Fall Fest features classic car shows, street vendors, dining delights, fun for the kids, and musical entertainment.
See amazing historic sites like Fort King George (complete with reenactments), the Butler Plantation and rice fields along with the Huston House mansion, Ashantilly Center, old churches, cemeteries, and tabby ruins on the waterfront. Immerse yourself in a world where flowers bloom in every season, where butterflies and birds abound, and bright, blue skies form the backdrop for ancient evergreen oaks festooned with ferns and Spanish moss.
Our charming, small-town environments are a rare find anymore!
