A Golden History
In 1961, author Eugenia Price was driving from Chicago
to Jacksonville when she decided to take a side trip to St. Simons Island, the largest of Georgia’s Golden Isles. She spent the night at the King and Prince Hotel, where she was captivated by the windswept beach and Southern hospitality. The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort has grown tremendously since Price’s visit, but it still reflects the charm and simple elegance that inspired Price to move to St. Simons Island permanently. Originally built in 1935 as a private dance club, the property has evolved into a premier resort where history blends perfectly with modern luxuries and a dedication to green initiatives. I find it hard to choose just one favorite thing about the The King and Prince, but I do love the Delegal Room’s stained glass windows depicting the island’s coastal scenes, pictured from the outside on the lower right of photo.
