Darien: Georgia's Hidden Gem of the Golden Isles
Here in Georgia's second oldest planned city, many new wonders await year-round attributing to Darien and McIntosh County's unique blend of history and natural beauty. Halfway between Jacksonville and Savannah lies McIntosh County and the town of Darien. Beyond the historic and naturally scenic atmosphere of Darien are many festive and cultural opportunities to experience the best of Coastal Georgia. Scottish Heritage Days, the Blessing of the Fleet, and the Darien Fall Fest are the most popular events, bringing thousands of visitors to the Waterfront Park and newly revitalized downtown area each year. We boast one of the world's largest estuarine systems swimming with seafood that is harvested locally. While we know you will find your favorite place in history whether it be Fort King George, Ashantilly, or the Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation; our best advice is sure to be dining on local seafood at one of our restaurants.
