eCREATIVE The island's amazingly fun and wildly exhilarating Segway Tour (912-635-9704), next to Red Bug Pizza. You’ll catapult through the maritime forest, taking intoxicating twists, turns and jumps with the occasional alligator sighting (completely safe!) and another adrenalin-packed view of the Club’s history – much still intact to be touched, seen, and experienced. Get away from The Club if you can, and try the modern, ocean front Westin restaurant which serves all three meals. The Reserve (westinjekyllisland.com) sits on an eight mile stretch of beach with an admirable and worth discovering eco-friendly menu for a night out – and getting rave reviews. Touring Jekyll Island can catapult you through a maritime forest with intoxicating twists, an occasional alligator sighting, and a breathtaking view. Jekyll Island Club has an Italian outdoor pool, bikes to rent, croquet, cooking classes and more. Take a morning horseback ride (we will never forget our ride with Stormy and Sushi!) through the wood and onto the aptly named Driftwood Beach (www.threeoaksfarm.org) or at sunset; another sunset option is the Dolphin Cruise (CaptainPhillips.com) that departs right from the Club's private pier. Jekyll Island Club Hotel  371 Riverview Drive Jekyll Island, GA 31527 (855) 787- 3857  Jekyllclub.com TYBEE ISLAND Tybee Island is not just modest beach cottages. You can also live like you imagine they might from the pages of Architectural Digest with Tybee Cottage’s own rendition of a miniature Versailles – 27 Taylor Street. This sprawling abode will bring gasps with the wide open spaces Jane Coslick décor including an intricate dining room more like an exquisite art installation, lighted swimming pool with bucolic fenced grounds. One would not be surprised to be invited to a VIP gathering in this four-bedroom, three-bath palatial 27 Taylor Street. This is one of Jim Heflin's pièces de résistance.
