Darien is Georgia's Hidden Gem of the Golden Isles. This is where Georgia began!

Established as a port on the Altamaha River by Scottish Highlanders in 1736, Darien has a long martial tradition. By 1863, Darien was considered one of the great ports on the eastern seaboard. Aside from shipping staples like cotton and lumber, the port was a haven for blockade runners. Because of its economic importance and notoriety as a blockade-running sanctuary, Darien became a target of Union forces invading the Georgia coast during the Civil War. With the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, now is the perfect time to explore Darien's Civil War history.

Visit Darien and explore rivers, estuaries, islands, beaches and natural habitats. 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.
