Of the six counties on the Georgia coast, Liberty and McIntosh experience the least tourist traffic. If you want to get off the beaten path, these counties offer many interesting excursions, with tours through traditional fishing villages, colonial fortifications, antebellum rice plantations, and rarely visited barrier islands. Travelers here will find distinctive pineywood settlements, marsh views, and local seafood restaurants that are some of the best on the Georgia coast.

The major attractions here are the LeConte-Woodmanston Plantation National Historic Site, Melon Bluff Nature and Heritage Preserve, Fort Morris State Historic Site, Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge, Blackbeard Island National Wildlife Refuge, the town of Darien, Fort King George State Historic Site; Sapelo Island and the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve; Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary, and the Altamaha River Bioreserve.
