Of the most popular islands to visit are St. Simons, Little St. Simons and Sea Island, which is a private island only accessible by driving through St. Simons. These islands, less than two hours from Savannah, received worldwide notoriety when President George W. Bush hosted the 2004 G8 Summit on Sea Island. The focus touched upon environmental concerns and the world leaders drove around in electric cars and planted oak trees in an effort to show their support to the island's delicate environment. St. Simons and its smaller island have appeared again and again on lists of America's best islands, and Sea Island is where folks with names like Rockefeller and Vanderbilt snuck away for winter retreats.
