Jesup remains close to its roots and enjoys celebrating its history in a city where it all comes together downtown. Step back in time at one of the state's few Drive-In Movie Theaters. Take a ride on Amtrak or just enjoy train watching from the platform. Experience farm life at Poppell Farms, which is just a short drive from Jesup, or paddle along the Altamaha River. Don't be surprised to see some large catfish during your visit. Jesup is the home of the record flathead catfish.
