The Times New Travel: Cumberland Island, Georgia

I first heard about Cumberland Island when JFK Jr. married there in the nineties (even as a young girl I loved John John). I later read about this beautiful place in more detail from Christina Haag's touching memoir, Come to the Edge (highly recommend this book).

Isolated, pristine, untouched. I've flown over this part of the country quite a few times and have been semi-nearby but have yet to actually experience it in all of its natural beauty. Wild horses, exotic beaches and sand dunes, historic ruins, quaint accommodations. You don't hear enough about Cumberland Island. Remote yet accessible. It definitely seems like an ideal spot for a romantic getaway or therapeutic retreat. It's definitely on my list of must-see places here in the U.S.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
