One of the best deals on Jekyll Island is the $4 admission to Georgia 4-H Tidelands Nature Center. Pick up horseshoe crabs that tickle when they try to pinch, watch baby alligators play, and see loggerhead turtles swim. Then, for another $55, hop in a kayak and follow a knowledgeable guide through the salt marsh.
