Need to kill some time before dinner or want to pick up some local souvenirs? This is the place. Very clean with lots of places to sit, this historic district is small enough to cover in a short time but big enough to make you wonder if you saw it all. There are several shops with varying tastes and while... More

What's great about the historic downtown Fernindina Beach area is that it blends the historic aspects with the restaurants and shops. There is plentiful free parking on the main street and all side streets. I loved that we could get there easily without an inordinate amount of traffic unlike other similar beach towns. Make sure you visit this area !... More

Greatly enjoyed the historic district. It's unusual and unique for a beach town to have such a charming and lovely downtown area. It makes coming here to the beach extra special. We were at the beach for 6 days and came down to historic district at least once a day. There is a lot to see.

My wife and I always enjoy the shops and ability to walk around to all of the shops and restaurants in the downtown area. The merchants are very friendly and accommodating.

Amelia Island is not just about the beach, it has historical value as well. As you walk along the main street you pass shops, restaurants, and old buildings from the past. Stop by the Welcome Center for more information on what's happening. Worth a trip to spend a day.

Though small, it contains the oldest FL Saloon, a very nice welcome center, shopping in the district and numerous restaurants. It is within walking distance of a history museum and the waterfront area. Certainly worth a Florida Day Trip. A nice ocean beach is available close by, along with Fort Clinch and a lighthouse.

Amazing walk thru history. Beautifully preserved and maintained houses built during the Victorian period. The downtown is unique. Every shop, bar and restaurant locally owned. All this on a harbor with the beautiful Amelia River. Be sure and visit the outstanding Amelia Museum of History.

Amelia Island is a nice town to visit. The downtown Historic district has a lot off history and beauty. Brought the family to visit this place.
