“Tis here, ’tis here, thou canst unhand thy heart and breathe it free.”-Poet Laureate Sidney Lanier referring to the marshland setting of Coastal Georgia
St. Marys is positioned 30.75 degrees north of the equator and 81.57 degrees west of the prime meridian. For guests arriving by air, St. Marys is located just 30 minutes from the Jacksonville, Florida International Airport. For drivers, that’s just ten miles east of I-95 off exit 1 or 3. The Goodbread House sits in the heart of the historic district at 209 Osborne Street amidst Spanish moss-draped live oaks and stately magnolias. Osborne Street dead-ends into the waterfront where placid water reflects white painted shrimp trawlers moored to wooden docks. The aura is that of an old fishing village.
The Goodbread House is only a few steps away from the historic waterfront. St. Marys is an iconic seaport on a scenic stretch of the St. Marys River that separates Georgia and Florida. Shopping, strolling, dining, and other activities are just a short walk from your front door in our charming town.
The climate for St Marys is mild at an average January temperature of 66.8 degrees Fahrenheit, and an average July temperature of 88.1 degrees.
