Very quaint , lots of shops, and restaurants on the Main Street, but if you walk down the side street you will find some really spectacular old homes and cottages.

Very unique buildings - some of the mansions would be worth a tour but not sure if that is an option. Enjoyed driving around the neighbourhoods. Lots of restaurants in old buildings.

So historic, so walkable, easy to get around in and to get to. Great little shops and restaurants, all local and no chains! Very dog friendly as well.

Husband and I enjoyed our week here. Came into this area several times to shop and dine. It is a charming town and everyone is helpful and welcoming. The buildings are lovely and well restored-and even the public restrooms are clean.

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Amelia Island, Florida. It has a quaint downtown area - Centre Street with a nice variety of shops, cafes and restaurants. While I was in the area, I also visited Fort Clinch Park, Fernandina Beach. The park itself is lovely, the road going through the park is lined with Live Oak Trees... More

We walked through the town after our lunch and went down by the waterfront. It was very nice and there was great ice cream at the fudge store.

I recommend strolling through this charming town when staying in the area. It has nice shops and a bit of history. I had a nice dinner at a restaurant in the area and took a nice evening stroll afterwards, going through the local shops.

My husband's aunt took us to Amelia Island during our trip to Jacksonville. Since he and I are big fans of antique shopping and finding eclectic stores, Amelia Island was the perfect stop during our trip. Just a short ferry away, Amelia Island is tucked away and even the ride through the island is completely relaxing. Once you make your... More
