Love to visit here! So much variety--from the historic downtown to the beaches to the south end canopy road--there is something for everyone! Lots of great places to eat : fast food to fancy sit down. Plenty of shops to choose from!

We moved here two years ago because St. Simons was too busy, Jekyll was too sleepy, but Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island were Just Right. Plenty of restaurants, hotels, resorts, residences, beaches, and activities, including good night life in downtown and at other areas on the island.

Fantastic beach to just relax. The views of the Atlantic and the sand dunes are absolutely perfect. Can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed a nice November day at Fernandina Beach. It's a cute town the weather is lovely. They've done a great job or restoring and cleaning after the latest hurricane. Not a bad drive from the interstate. And hey...A1A beachfront avenue!

This is a fantastic small town to relax and rest. Complete (local's) type of atmosphere...yet very inviting to anyone visiting. I truly hope it stays that way!

This is a great little downtown area. The have plenty of old trees for shade. They provide many benches so you can spend some time enjoying the nice weather.
