Explore rivers, estuaries, islands, beaches, and natural habitats. Our coastline is home to many types of resident wildlife and birds as well as migratory species around the calendar. 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 Old Jail; our best advice is sure to be dining on local cuisine at one of our restaurants, events or festivals. Skipper’s Fish Camp, Pelican Point and the Darien River House are happy to plan your dinner and reservation with local delicacies on the menu. The annual Martin Luther King Parade, Scottish Heritage Days, Blessing of the Fleet Festival, St. Patrick’s Celebration, Sapelo Island Cultural Day, Darien Fall Fest featuring McIntosh Shouters and a historic styled lime burn, and Debatable Land Battle with the Spanish are great opportunities to catch some extra special local foods and entertainment.
With the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War beginning in 2011, now is the perfect time to explore Darien's Civil War history.
