The coast of Georgia is rich in colonial history related to the founding and early development of our country. It can also be considered a "gold coast" because it is a dynamic area of growth for people and business. At the same time, this coast represents a tremendous success story in the protection of the natural environment. From the great Okefenokee Swamp, to the mythical barrier islands and their broad beaches, to the mighty Altamaha, Ogeechee, and Savannah Rivers, to the expansive saltmarshes, the natural features of the coast of Georgia are afforded more protection than any other part of the State. It is also filled with spectacular opportunities to observe and interact with the natural environment. The Georgia coast is home to a significant industry established to promote and provide recreational opportunities to visit, observe, and commune with the wild places and the wildlife in this most pristine portion of the Georgia natural areas.
