Coming Events:


Deep in the heart of Southeast Georgia, on the banks of the Altamaha River, Wayne County beckons visitors to a community of charm and natural splendor.  Remember your family vacations as a child?  Those good ole days can still be found.  They're being discovered on Historic U.S. Highway 301 and 341 - The Golden Isles Parkway.

U.S. 301, known as the traditional route through the South for generations of Americans, is providing a roadway of nostalgia for today's vacationers.  As it was then, travelers never know exactly what they might find around the next bend or in the next town.

Wayne County and Jesup are truly treasures along the way.  A Mecca for the outdoor enthusiasts.  This beautiful location has history, outdoor adventure and the best Southern hospitality that can be found.

Many of our original hotels have been refurbished and offer a different style of comfort.  While RV enthusiasts will find available sites at Lake Lindsay Grace or Jaycee Landing situated on the expansive Altamaha River.  Wayne County is a sportsman's paradise!  Anglers delight in fishing from the fertile waterways.  Hunters can test their prowess in acres of woodlands.  Whitetail deer, raccoon, migratory birds, waterfowl, and an enormous variety of other wildlife thrive in Wayne County's forest.  Find a bit of solitude, land a largemouth bass, or just take a relaxing afternoon boat ride, this natural paradise is sure to captivate you.

In the spring, come see our gardens at their peak during Jesup's Dogwood Festival and the annual Garden Tour of Homes.  Summer is also a time of celebration as the traditional Fourth of July Celebration is a huge blast.  October brings large crowds to the annual Odum Day Festival, the Arch Fest in downtown Jesup and the Jaycee Fair and its entertaining midway offer fun for children of all ages.

Wayne County offers a bit of nostalgia with a mix of adventure for those seeking a different location to visit.  Come discover this outdoor paradise and the many fun-filled opportunities that await you.
