Eat Like a Local on Georgia's Coast

Georgia has a beautiful landscape of mountains, farmland and coastline, each offering their own culinary history. U.S. Highway 17 extends about 100 miles from Port Wentworth in the north to Cumberland Island in the south along Georgia's coastline. This stretch of highway offers a unique ecosystem of waterways, swamps, marshes, islands, beaches and inlets. It also offers access to miles of fishing, shrimping, crabbing as well as clam and oyster harvesting, resulting in an abundance of seafood-inspired culinary creations.
