It takes Lord Eye Center's opticians one hour to produce a pair of prescription glasses. Working at an onsite lab, they fit frames from more than 30 designers, using an electronic tracing device to render the thinnest lenses possible. The shop's optometrists can also prescribe various types of contact lenses, from continuous wear and disposable to bifocals and colored lenses. Dr. Whit Lord, owner of Lord Eye Center, scouts out the latest cornea-hugging designs as a member of several advisory panels for contact-lens manufacturers.
Pillow-top mattresses and down-filled pillows lull guests gently to sleep at Clarion Inn Brunswick. In the morning, the staff sets out a free continental breakfast in the lobby, where you can fuel up before heading out to explore the area. The hotel is close to many attractions including golf, beaches, and historic downtown Brunswick, and only 10 minutes from Jekyll and St. Simons Islands. In the summertime, head to the seasonal outdoor pool for some swimming or inflatable-whale watching.
Designed in a collaborative effort between former Masters champion Fred Couples and Love Golf Design, The Golf Club at Sanctuary Grove’s 18-hole, par 71 course snakes across 7,003 yards of immaculate greenery. Golf carts nimbly traverse the course’s labyrinthine corridors, zipping players past the intervening ponds, towering pines, and trash-talking waterfowl that supply the bulk of the course’s challenges.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
Our business is extremely unique to our area. We are the only store in the region that offers beer brewing onsite through our 25-gallon all-electric system. And, to top it off, our prices will fit in any brewer's budget.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
Beer, of course. Being an avid homebrewer, I got tired of the lack of ingredients in my local area and decided to make a change. Just having customers come in and share their recipes or experiences gives me a sense of enjoyment.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
I convinced one customer to start making his own wine. He is now on his third batch, and just told me he wants to start a fourth already because his last batch was so good.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Being around my passion and those that have the passion for it as well. I love giving and receiving feedback on my home brews. The culture that comes with making your own wine or beer is awesome.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Not only do we cater to local customers, but we also have online sales. If our customer doesn't have time to come in and shop, they can order online and select "free in-store pickup." We will pick their order for them and have it ready for them to stop by. For those out of town, we offer $7.99 flat-rate shipping.
