We very highly recommend the Trolley Tour with Connie Claxton as the tour guide. She is very friendly and entertaining. The start is conveniently located at the marina end of Centre Street at 11:30 and 2:00. Our tour took an hour and a half, and we saw so many interesting historic houses and buildings, and heard all of their stories.... More

This is a great spot to walk around, do a bit of shopping, grab a bite to eat and take pictures of neat old buildings or the waterfront. Not sure there's a lot to entertain kids, but for adults it's got a lot to offer.

We walked around here for about 3 hours. The shops are fun. Got to the marina, it is great to walk around. We walked around the area of some of the historic homes, which were also beautiful, It was a good afternoon.

There were lots of old buildings, homes and items to see and for me to photograph in the Amelia Island Historic District. Do not miss the Palace Saloon (oldest bar in Florida). On Center Street near the old Depot is some buildings that have what I call ghost signs. Signs you can still see from years past.

Amelia Island is a real jewel! We have seen it ranked in the top 25...worldwide...and top 10 in the USA. We arrived with great expectations, only to have them surpassed. Unlike many US beaches where one is inundated with tacky advertisements and billboards, the entire island is awesome, and "tacky-free". Accommodations are reasonably priced and mostly of higher quality. If... More

Very nice selection of shops and restaurants. Some are very overpriced and others more reasonable. Be sure to shop around!

A trip to Amelia Island is always a beautiful experience. Being a personal vacation, or a corporate event, the Island is a magic place that offers something to anyone. The historic district is a perfect place to close an evening with a stroll through the touristy shops, and the various restaurants, bars or excellent ice cream and frozen yogurt parlors.... More
