Georgia Trend - October 2004

St. Simons Fallback

Some like it hot. One of Georgia's most popular summer getaways, St. Simons Island is packed in the peak months of June through August. But I've always loved the beach in fall and winter. The gnarled live oaks still stand sentry over the sidewalks, but the throngs of tourists are mostly gone. If you're lucky, the night air will be cool, but you might be able to swim during Indian summer, even as the leaves turn.

The Best and Brightest Young Georgians

Once again it's time to recognize the cream of one of Georgia's most valuable crops: bright young people. Our eighth 40 Under 40 -- a listing of the state's rising superstars -- includes a mix of entrepreneurs, traditional businesspeople, civic leaders, public servants, academics and nonprofit workers from every corner of the state. Indeed, the number of nominations this year was far and above that of previous years, making the task of narrowing the list down to just 40 tougher than ever.
