If you want your wedding to evoke Southern hospitality and all its charms, draw your line in the sand of one of Jekyll Island's unspoiled beaches. It's one of Georgia's barrier islands, which means the ten miles of beaches are unique and ever changing. The weather is mild and pleasant year-round, and the beaches are perhaps best known for the beautiful shells found scattered in the sands. The island is also restricted to only thirty-five percent development by law, leaving sixty-five percent in its natural, picture-perfect state. JekyllIsland.com

Retirees looking for tax relief may want to take a midnight train to the Peach State. Social Security income is exempt from state taxes, and so is up to $35,000 of most types of retirement income for residents age 62 to 64. For those 65 and older, the exemption is $65,000 (or $130,000 per couple).
Retirement income includes income from pensions and annuities, interest income, dividend income, net income from rental property, capital gains income, and the first $4,000 of earned income, such as wages.
The statewide sales tax is low (food and prescription drugs are exempt), but jurisdictions can add up to an additional 4% of their own taxes.
A Georgia homeowner may pay a combination of county, city, school and state taxes, depending on location.
