Loved spending time strolling the downtown historical shopping area which is right off the river front. It is clean, well lite, streets are narrow and mostly one ways but has signs on each corner to help locate all shops, restaurants and places of interest. Welcome center is also there and has lots of information for tours, fishing, cycling and just... More

Amelia Island historic district has tons of personality. Brightly colored houses, historical buildings and interesting architecture. Cute shops and antique stores. Tons of restaurants and a great fudge shop. I recommend Timoti's Seafood Shak, Fantastic Fudge and the Book Loft.

We walked the streets and it is quite beautiful. The water front also worth seeing. They have all types of shops, restaurants, boat tours. Also hotels in the area. Recommend the visitors center. Linda has a lot of information.

At our hotel there was a walking tour of the historic district. We did not realize in such a small town there was that many historical homes. The houses and buildings are easy to find and marked. It's a great way to see what families called this area home. We walked the area over the 3 days we were in... More

This is our 5th year here. This place is relaxing, a lot to do, reasonable prices, each shop has different items. Don't visit here without seeing all of the historic district. Well worth the walk. Ask about the tree in the road. Great story.

Lots of places to shop, eat, drink, art galleries, and any other kind of store you could want to see. Even a distillery with tasting tours!! This was my first trip there and I felt safe walking everywhere by myself!! Loved the old home downtown feeling!! Watch out for the train, they are real tracks!!!
