We were visiting St. Augustine and thought we should stop by as some reviewers have compared it favorably to Hilton Head, SC. I'm sure it has something to do with the timing, March, of our visit, it didn't feel much alive. The historic district covers the 8 blocks on the main street from the water which we covered it in...

Historic Amelia Island has many things to offer. Great restaurants and bars with amazing food, a wonderful farmer's market every Saturday, great little shops and stores and many historical markers that make this district well worth a visit. There is something here for everyone.

Lots to see and do. Great places to eat. Many of the stores are typical "tourist-type" shops but also some specialty shops with items generally not found in other places. Twisted Sisters has moved to a new location and you know you have to buy something there. Make sure to go to the Visitors Center and get the historical homes... More

Plan to visit the town for a little shopping, ice cream, horse carriages, and history. Public restrooms are hard to find as is the visitor's center. Didn't spend much time there as a storm rolled through but it would be a great place to return to in the future.

Very unpleasant feeling coming from store associates. Very few hellos or greetings...If you don't want to greet us, I won't be purchasing anything. Very simple. I was warmly greeted in a shirt shop that sold various Amelia Island shirts and beach bags, and at one of the antique shops. Otherwise, not that much "friendly" going on. It was so unfortunate...

Historic downtown is a must see when visiting this area. It is absolutely beautiful. Unique houses circa the 1800's. Spanish moss laden trees, antique shops, a numerous amount of cafe's, art galleries, horse carriage rides, etc. You can't go wrong. My favorite place to visit in Florida. I love it here.

Amelia Island is the first beach stop just inside Florida and it makes you think of "old Florida" in that it is a quainty seaside town and full of local shops, antique finds and awesome local catch restaurants. We could not have been more pleasantly surprised with our visit from accommodations to walks to seafood... the best!

Quaint, smaller historic district. Nice, clean area with small town charm. Easy to drive, bike or walk around. Lovely B&Bs in the area. Close to dining and shopping.

Amelia Island's historic district in Fernandina Beach is great. Lots of places to shop, great eating locations and a funny place to visit. Put your walking shoes on, if you are hungry, many restaurants To choose from, especially for dinner. Very enjoyable location.

I had always notice the signs for Amelia Island on the way to Daytona so wanted to check it out. We planned to stay 3 days but really the town is just a stop off walk around a few hours eat at one of the terrific restaurants and be on your way kind of place. I think a big reason... More
