When visiting the beach, usually there's so much more to see than just the beach. Sometimes there are hidden trails, boardwalks, and structures you would never know were there unless you went exploring. Jekyll Island's bike trails in Georgia will take you away from reality for a bit to really make your vacation one of a kind.\nThe Jekyll Island Bike Trails might be one of the best trails in the south with everything you can see here.\nNot only will you get incredible beachy ocean views, but you'll bike through a Spanish moss forest and even see the ruins of an old home from the 1700s on your adventure.\nThe entirety of the island's bike trails total more than 20 miles.

There's something about beaches, biking, and hiking that just go together so well.\nWhether you're a seasoned cycler or just beginning, this trail is easy to moderate so everyone in your group can enjoy it.\nView this post on Instagram Having a daughter has reconnected me to a part of me that I had lost. The part that thought life was one big treasure map and that everyday was about discovery. The part that believed nature walks and scavenger hunts were the greatest adventure in the world. The part that could spend all day outdoors looking at butterflies, bugs, rocks, flowers and trees. The part that cared most about ‘what are we going to do today’, not ‘what are we going to wear?’ The part that was lead into the grandest of escapades by curiosity, imagination and nature. The part that was free to wonder, free to play and free to learn. Motherhood hasn’t just helped me grow into being a better woman, it has helped me find once again my inner child. Here’s to Peter Pan days, may they last just a little longer. #adventuresinmotherhood #summerdays #jekyllisland A post shared by MyScoop (@myscoop) on May 26, 2020 at 5:12am PDT\nThe boardwalk you can peddle on will lead you to the Horton House State Historic Area where you can take a break and explore.
