There are 3 islands on the Georgia coast that have bridges
jekyll island http://www.jekyllisland.com/ The island was officially purchased by the State of Georgia on October 7, 1947. In 1950 the State of Georgia organized the Jekyll Island Authority, a management governing board. This board consists of nine gubernatorial appointed members. This board was charged with the operating and care of the island. This management structure continues today.

St. Simons Island is a resort community and has many seasonal residents, as well as a steady base of year-round residents. Consequently, many of the residents are retired individuals from other parts of the state or the U.S.
