Trying to escape the early winter and enjoy some warmer weather brought us to Fernandina Beach. Gorgeous beach - but the weather did not really help here, as it was pretty chilly and windy (in upper 50-ties). We still enjoyed walking on the beach and then visited the Amelia Island State Park. Will be back in summer!

I went to the main beach and the boardwalk even though it is short is very nice. They have many benches along the park and beach to just sit and people watch or read a paper. I walked the each for quite a while and found it clean and the sand was very nice and white and easy to walk... More

We went to Amelia Island for a short visit. We took the trolley ride and learned a great deal about the island and the people. The driver was fantastic and the microphone worked perfectly. We really enjoyed the tour. Then the next morning we took the river cruise and Pajama Dave was so very informative and full of history of... More

You can judge a warm and welcoming town by whether they charge for parking and the good folks of Fernandina Beach provide it free. Just walking, shopping and looking kept us busy and satisfied for 3 days! There is always something pleasant to see at the marina and you can walk there from anywhere in the old town district. A...

Great shopping on island and on causeway leading into island. Plenty of public beachs so you dont have to be crowded up unless u want to be, and you can drive on beach with a... More

Lovely old buildings and great downtown shops. Plus, the beach was beautiful. The shops were very eclectic with something for everyone. The shops were very varied and stocked a lot of unusual stuff. Loved the lighting the old town had at night. Great family atmosphere and felt very safe and secure there. Would highly recommend a visit.

Oh my, what a treat! This town has all the charm and history that we had hoped for. From old homes and buildings to quaint shops and places to dine it was just what we wanted it to be. I commend the people of Fernandina for having the forethought to preserve this area. BTW, not only did we notice how... More
