Amelia Historic District is an awesome display of architect, history ,shopping and eateries! Immersed within huge oak trees, Spanish moss, busy streets and arts abound! Close to Marina, parks, historical homes so much like New Orleans and Key West mixed together! Can walk, bike, trolley or drive. Plenty of seating areas for those who need to rest between sights.

Assorted shops, art galleries and studios, plus eateries invite tourists to stroll and browse.The 1988 movie Adventures of Pippi Longstocking was filmed here and is the location of her house, Villa Villakula - a must for young readers!

The past four New Year's Holidays we have spent in Amelia Island. Great place to unwind and stroll the downtown. Full of history and many local shops and places to dine.

There is a variety of shops from clothes, jewelry to art... More

The historic downtown and surrounding area have been well taken care of. Many local shops and restaurants with historic homes and churches surrounding. Get one of the historic walking tour guides and learn more.

Fernandina Beach Historic District is one of the most charming towns we've had the privilege to visit. The smaller homes downtown are unique and there are some informative publications to help you identify the homes and the stories behind them. Be sure to see both sides of Centre Street downtown and walk the side streets. Take a short ride to... More

Spent a few days here on vacation. Stayed a few blocks from Center St, right in the historic district. Everything is within walking distance. Lots of great antique shops, restaurants, bars, and the like. The home within the historic district are also ery nice, worth a stroll through a few blocks.

Historic District beautifully lit. Wonderful for night strolls in town. Enjoyed birding on the uncrowded beaches. Take your bike and binos.

What a delightful step back in time! The ambiance makes you let out a stressful breath and breathe in calmness. We arrived in town just in time to attend a sweet children's Christmas Eve service at the lovely local Methodist church and then wander around a bit to see the shops and restaurants that abound in this little Victorian corner...
