Lots of quaint little shops, bars and restaurants. We had lunch at Hola!. Their Cuban Sammie is awesome, of course I flooded mine with Mojo sauce which was on the table. Yum! Wasn't too impressed with the Green Turtle Tavern. Locals place with no room at the bar because either dogs are sitting in the chairs or folks not drinking,... More

The trolly tour was great to have an understanding of the history with the fabulous honeymoon houses. The guide was fabulous. Tickets were $20 but the shop at the pier gave... More

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
