The shops are clearly for the older folk, boutiquey shoppers, with vacation money to spend. Not that interesting.

Okay, so the beach is not really attached. The historic district is in the town of Fernandina Beach. Not sure why the town is called a beach when there is clearly no beach but I digress.

My husband and I were on a road trip. I navigated him to this unbelievable place. Christmas Card worthy. Romantic. The restaurants, saloons, taverns, shops, streets, bed and breakfast places all were absolutely amazing. We are going back in October for three days. Can't get enough of this place.

Art stores, book stores, restaurants and more. You'll be near the first Customs House built in the US as well as the bar frequented by Augustus Busch and more. This... More

This beautiful island has a charming historical downtown area, Center street is a delight to stroll down, and in the evening, white twinkling tree lights add to the charm of this small town. Browse book stores, antique markets, art studios, chill in the coffee/ ice cream stores, a fun stop with the kids is the fudge shop , where you... More

There are a lot of small shops and antique stores along the one main street. Also a lot of eateries. The harbor is at the end and you can take a river cruise

Always a relaxing walk down Main Street. Wonderful stores with friendly sales associates. Love the farmer's market during the summer. The area has always been safe and enjoyable for my family. Will always stop here when in town.

Great place to go if you live in Tennessee or Georgia. The drive is much more enjoyable than driving to destin! Love this part of Florida!
