Y’all can get good eats with a good view at 539 Brigantine Dunmore Road in Midway on Wednesday-Friday from 5-9pm, Saturday 12-9pm and Sunday 12-8pm!
Irene B. Thomas Park
Irene B. Thomas Park is another spot that many people don’t know about! It is conveniently located on Sharon and Elaine Streets off of E.G. Miles Parkway. With a half mile walking trail that wraps around a pond, you can get your steps in while enjoying the view! If you like to fish, bring your fishin’ pole and get ready to catch a big one. If you’re looking to entertain then they also have amenities for that as well.
Eve Park is located at Halfmoon Marina out in Midway! This park gets recognition as one of Liberty County’s “hidden gems,” because it is located right on the water! There is a screened picnic table seating area that can fit up to 40 people, along with restrooms, a kitchen, large charcoal grill and a playground for the kids. It is perfect to rent out for an event! They have half and full day rentals available. Contact the Liberty County Recreation Department if you’re interested in learning more (912) 876-5359!

The Historic Baptismal Trail
The Historic Baptismal Trail located in Riceboro is another one of our special hidden gems! It’s open Monday-Friday 8am-5pm and Saturday-Sunday from 9am-5pm.
