Definitely fun to walk around, but the restaurants and stores close up by 8, it seems, so it's hard to go for dinner and then walk around afterwards. My husband and I did walk around a good bit, but in the height of the summer it's too hot to do during the day.

There are shops for everyone. Whether you want antiques, t-shirts, casual attire or more upscale clothing, it can all be found in the historic district. You can park your car and walk the entire area. Many places are pet friendly and offer bowls of water.

There is nothing lacking in this beautiful, well established, historic district. There are plenty of quaint, interesting shops. You will find a restaurant or lounge in any direction. There are clean, easy to locate public restrooms. There is available parking. It is shady with many resting areas. I loved this little historic district and found it very pleasant to visit.... More

We loved Amelia Island. Went for a day trip from St Simon Island. Had lunch along the water. Biggest hamburger I ever ordered! It was open air about 5 minutes down after you turn on beach rd.

The buildings and area are indeed historic, if you take time to closely look at the architectural details. The shops and restaurants are your average tourist type establishments with bars, overpriced mediocre restaurants, some small boutiques, galleries and t shirt shops. One visit is adequate to say you have been here.

We spent the afternoon in the historic district. There are several antique shops that are very neat. Some are more pricey than others. There is a neat ice cream shop and fudge shop. It was an enjoyable afternoon.

Disappointing. Think Main Street Disney World without the architectural diversity. Typical downtown business association streetscape of mostly uninteresting buildings dressed up with non-historic marketing appendages selling mostly uninteresting, overpriced goods. One visit was enough.

Very nice area to walk shop and dine. Very clean safe with a variety of shops and good eats if it is for a leisurely lunch a brew or even fine dinning. Nice big Marina that is not for boat owners only.

We walked around and had lunch. The historical area is always interesting. The Farmers Market was open with fresh fruits and veggies, lots of fresh bread, and some crafts.
