“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

For someone that has been coming here all their life, what's not good to say about Fernandina Beach. It's is one of the best places on the Atlantic Ocean...and still warm enough in September!!

“quaint town-a day trip at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

If you can, take the river boat tour and shop at some of their stores on the main street. It's not that interesting a place, but it is safe to walk through and the people are very friendly.

“A real Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Our 1st visit to Fernandina Beach...a real find..like going back to the way Florida used to be! A small island with a historic 50 block area..many restaurants..and beaches everywhere. The trolly tour is a must to get a good background of the history of the island. Also a few hours in the Local museum is a great rainy day thing. A visit to the Palace saloon is worthwhile.

“Visitor for 30 years! Still Mesmerized!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

There are many things in life that change but Fernandina Beach is not one of them! Have been coming to Fernandina Beach since my children were small and when I remarried- there was no other place I considered other than Fernandina Beach. The marina downtown, the wonderful restaurants and shops on Centre Street, Fort Clinch State Parl, the quiet, uncrowded beaches are all wonderful year after year.
Everyone is so friendly - feel as if this is "home away from home" every time we come.

Lots of beaches to choose from, the well known as well as the local secrets. Small town feel with plenty to see and do.
