6 Best Spots to Watch the Sunrise or Sunset in Liberty County
We think that one of Liberty County’s best attributes are the beautiful views that Mother Nature paints in the sky each morning and evening – weather permitting. People often ask where they can see the best sunsets and sunrises, so we made a list of 6 of our favorite spots to share with y’all. This is something that everyone can enjoy. Here are 6 of our favorite spots to watch the sunrise or sunset in Liberty County!
1) Sunbury Boat Ramp
One of Liberty County’s best kept secrets, the Sunbury Boat Ramp has some of the best views you’ll find on the coast. It’s a peaceful spot to kick back and get a wide view of the sun as it rises over our intracoastal waterways. You’re likely to find someone fishing or putting their boat in the water because it doubles as a boat ramp and a pier! Bring a chair and your fishing pole and stick around after the sun rises for some great fishing.
2) Jones Creek Park
Another spot that we consider one of Liberty County’s best-kept secrets is Jones Creek Park in Midway. This discreet little spot off Isle of Wight Road provides silence and serenity to clear your mind and decompress from a long day or prepare yourself for a busy one. The wide-open views of the paintings in the sky are likely to make your jaw drop. Sometimes it is hard to believe that they are even real! If you are a morning person, head over for a sunrise. You won’t be disappointed. Pro Tip: the view from the Jones Creek bridge has some pretty amazing sunsets as well!
3) Eve Park
Colonels Island is one of our coastal communities, and many people don’t even know that Eve Park is out there! Tucked away in the corner at Halfmoon Marina the intracoastal waterway views are plentiful. You might even get lucky and see a boat coming in or going out! The best part about Eve Park is that it has a playground to occupy the kids, so mom and dad can take a few minutes to relax and enjoy. Head out to with the whole family in tow to catch a glimpse at a beautiful sunset!
4) St. Catherines Island
Although only accessible by boat, our barrier island, St. Catherines is never running low on sunrise and sunset views. If you’re able to catch a ride out to the island, you’ll see spectacular views while hearing the water hit the shore. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that everyone should take advantage of if the opportunity presents itself!
5) Fort Morris State Historic Site
Our state historic site, Fort Morris, is located in Midway and offers a clear view of the St. Catherines sound. It’s open from dawn to dusk, so you can get there early and pick out the perfect spot to view the show in the sky as the sun goes down. In addition to the coastal views, the site has lots of old oak trees covered in Spanish moss as well as nature trails offering different ways to see the breathtaking skies! Carve out some time to go visit and take advantage of the opportunity to learn more about the fort that offered protection to our coast during the Revolutionary War. It still has the original earth works, and they’re an amazing sight to see.
6) Bryant Commons Park
Don’t feel like driving out to the coast? Bryant Commons Park in downtown Hinesville is the perfect spot to get exactly that right here in town. The old oak trees provide the perfect backdrop for a relaxing morning to see a beautiful sunrise.
This is the perfect way to enjoy the cool fall weather and get out to #ExploreLiberty. Do not forget to bring your camera along and snap a picture, so you can keep the memories with you forever!
