Nestled on the far southeast corner of Georgia in Camden County on the border with Florida and the Atlantic Ocean, Kingsland is an idyllic little town that embodies everything having to do with southern hospitality. In fact, after a nationwide search, Oprah Winfrey selected Kingsland Georgia to be the setting for her new reality TV show, Lovetown, USA. And to be fair, Kingsland has a lot of features that make it quite romantic. Beautiful green marshes, wide open pastures, regal Civil War-era architecture -- if there were ever a set for a turn-of-the-century romance novel, Kingsland is it.
Start your vacation off right by visiting the Kingsland Welcome Center and getting briefed on all the town has to offer. Don’t take our word for it -- trust the local word on everything from restaurants to golf courses and best things to do.
With both Spanish and English explorers establishing the town over 400 years ago, Kingsland has a rich multicultural history. We recommend simply walking around downtown Kingsland that feels like stepping back in time. In the main square, you’ll find yearly events like the Oyster Roast, the Labor Day Catfish Festival, and the Kingsland Christmas tree lighting.
Kingsland lays claim to an impressive collection of beautiful outdoor treasures that will floor every traveler. Make your way over to the Cumberland Island National Seashore, the largest of Georgia’s barrier islands that stretch for almost 10,000 acres along the coast. Stay outdoors and head to the Okefenokee Swamp that’s filled with dripping cypress forests and tons of widldlfe.
For a true taste of Kingsland culture, check out the Woodbine Opry, a place where fiddles, mandolins, and banjos jam with steel guitars and harmonicas. Come here to hear the vintage sounds of Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash while sharing a drink with a local.
Other top things to do in Kingsland include the St. Mary’s Submarine Museum, the Laurel Island Links Golf Course, and Beau’s Barnyard.
As far as accommodations go, we recommend staying in the heart of Kingsland’s historic district. Here you’ll find exquisite vacation rentals, cozy pet-friendly rental homes, and modern spots with high-speed internet access. Many of the house rentals are near Saint Mary’s GA, which is a nearby town also worth exploring. Wherever you choose your vacation home, it’s sure to be an excellent getaway weekend in the Oprah-certified Lovetown, USA.
Because the southern states can get hot and muggy in the summer months, it’s best to avoid the middle of the year. Shoot to visit Kingsland between February and May when the weather is at its best.
