What a great way to get a workout in on vacation! My son and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Rob's knowledge of Fernandina's history while jogging past many landmarks in the historic district. I would definitely recommend this tour to family and friends visiting the area.

I met Rob at 8am for a 3+ mile jog through the streets of the historic downtown Fernandina. I'm a slow jogger and he adjusted to my pace. I never felt rushed and I even stopped to take pictures as we weaved our way around town. The history was fascinating and he knows it all! Rob suggested heading over to... More

I am a runner, but my husband is not yet; we had a great time run/walking through the streets of Fernandina Beach. Rob is a born and raised local and tells a wonderful story of the history of the island. Much more fun than reading small plaques on a museum wall. Thanks Rob!!!

My husband surprised me with this running tour while on vacation. I was very happy to get an early run and history lesson in. I was worried about the pace of the run, but thankfully, it was perfect. Rob also checked in several times to see if we were ok with the pace, and that put my mind at ease.... More

This tour was such a unique and fun way to see this historic town! Rob was great. Friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and very accommodating.

For anyone interested in sightjogging or guided sightseeing, contact Rob Hicks of Peg Leg. Arrangements via email were simple and convenient. We met at the appointed hour and enjoyed an easy 3+ mile jog together through the streets, side roads and neighborhoods of this quaint northeast Florida outpost. Rob knows the architecture, personalities, history and juicy details of this town... More
