I visited the historic district of Fernandina Beach and loved the downtown area. The beautiful homes, buildings and storefronts were charming and quaint. I especially loved visiting The Palace Saloon and The Marina restaurant.

We spent last weekend in Amelia Island - loved it! We found it to have more soul than the average Florida beach. Real people live here and work here. We enjoyed restaurants that were both high and low brow - both excellent. Quaint little shops, friendly people, clean and far less tacky than your average tourist spots. Can't wait to... More

It was a nice little town that you would picture in an old movie. The people were very nice and the town was clean and inviting.

Great walking tour whether alone or through the museum. Beautiful houses dating to the 1800's! Uniques stores, wish they had been open a little later than 5 or 6 pm. Restaurants Ciao! & LULU's a must for anyone!

Absolutely loved our visit to Amelia Island. Extremely relaxing with wonderful choices in food and activities. It was not crowded with loud obnoxious tourists like many beach towns can be. Highly recommend Amelia Island if you are looking for a laid back, fun and romantic trip.

It is such a nice place to stroll along and stop in all the great stores. Was really impressed that the town is a "dog friendly" place, with water bowls in front of almost every store. Had to leave my dogs at home, so loved seeing everyone else walking theirs. We went more than once and found alot of unique... More

Love downtown Fernandina. Small storefront shopping. Ice cream stores. Coffee shops. Live music. Ride down to the river front to watch the sunset. Lots of seating around the river. Great photo opportunities. Such a small town feel. I love it there.

Worth a day of your time. Be sure to walk or drive down the side streets and see the old Victorian era houses, which are gems. The shops themselves on Center Street are not that great, but every restaurant we went to was good. Civil war era architecture.
