Savannah Daytrips: Find handmade glass globes on Jekyll Island during Jan., Feb. 2017

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Island Treasures Jekyll Island 2017 Daytrips Savannah Every year, Jekyll Island commissions a group of highly skilled artisans from across the U.S. to create exquisite, handworked glass globes for Jekyll’s annual Island Treasures event.

(Jekyll Island is an easy, roughly 90-minute drive down I-95 from Savannah. See our list of things to do with kids on on Jekyll Island here. )

The glass floats are part of a hide-and-seek style game played on Jekyll Island throughout January and February 2017. Each day, volunteers called Beach Buddies hide glass floats around the island for lucky guests to find and, yes, get this, keep.

Each float is marked with a special tag and instructions for treasure finders to register their Island Treasures at the Jekyll Island Guest Information Center where they will receive a certificate of authenticity and artist biography for their one-of-a-kind float. The Center is open Monday-Saturday, 9AM – 6PM and Sunday 10AM-5PM.

More are out there, and more are placed ever day through February. Overall, 250 floats will have been placed for lucky float finders. Island Treasures runs  through Feb. 28, 2017.

At the Beach Village on Jekyll Is. on Jan. 21 & 28, and Feb. 4 & 25, three extra floats will be hidden in the Beach Village.

Learn more about Island Treasures here.
