You have discovered Georgia’s second oldest city, founded in 1736.
If you enjoy beautiful views by the water with ancient live oaks and Spanish moss, historic, landscaped parks, cozy bed and breakfasts, birding, biking, boating, authentic colonial forts, coastal marshlands with five rivers, exploring barrier islands, fresh seafood, discovering the Gulla-Geechee culture, salt and fresh water fishing, sea kayaks, river tours, Scottish heritage, shrimp boats returning to waterfront docks at sunset, or small-town coastal living, you should plan on visiting Darien, Georgia. Downtown Darien is thriving and new developments are assisting the city in a community-wide revitalization effort.
This is one of the last unspoiled places on the Atlantic seaboard, rich in history, the beauty of nature, hospitality—
and welcoming to new opportunities. We protect our natural resources while embracing quality growth. Come and see for yourself what others are finding in historic Darien.
