Jekyll Island for New Year's Eve

Planning on coming down from Charlotte on Sunday the 29th and staying three nights, leaving New Year's Day. Any advice on where to stay (looking at Hampton Inn for $92/night, but Hotwire has 2.5 star for $60 + fees a night - does anyone know what hotel that may be?), where to eat, and what to do (do they have mini-golf? any cool bars?)

Thanks!

The Island is usually quiet. There are two things to check out. Contact Villas by the Sea and Driftwood Bistro, they might be having something over New Years. Also, on the more expensive side, Jekyll Island Club is having a dinner for $125.00 or from 8 - 1am there is a party with DJ and finger type foods for $25.00 plus drinks, I think, but you can check with them. www.jekyllclub.com or www.villasbythesea.com. hope this helps.

The island is VERY quiet. Maybe the quietest place you've ever gone. I would check out the Jekyll Island Club if you want a celebration. A quiet NYEve with a walk on the beach would be a fabulous way to spend it for some (including me) but if you are looking for cool bars and parties, Jekyll's not really the place to go.

Yes, there is a small mini-golf option. Think simple and quiet. True of almost everything on Jekyll.

Thanks for the info. I'm booked at the Quality Inn and Suites. We may just have to create our own party, which is fine. Hope the weather will be beach worthy at that time.

Thanks!

We've played in the water on Dec 31st. There's no way to predict the weather. It could be an 80 degree day or at 65 degree day. But beach walking, biking, visiting around the island is wonderful no matter the temperature.
