Lovely little town with many restored homes. We took the carriage ride when we arrived, good way to see the town.

This is a great hidden away town providing a fun way to spend an afternoon (or evening). Great old buildings and churches. fun shops & restaurants. Head down to the marina for gorgeous sunset photos. Very walkable town. Wander around and look at some of the old homes. These two are right across from each other and are totally different... More

By stopping at the local museum, you can pick up booklets about the downtown area. You can also take a horse drawn carriage ride, a trolley bus tour, or a walking ghost/story tour. I live in the district and it is quite charming

Most things are concentrated around center street and on the intersecting roads (up to 6th street). A beautiful 1-2 hours walk with plenty of places to stop for a coffee, ice-cream or a full dinner.

Love walking downtown Fernandina Beach! It's so exciting and people friendly especially during Christmas, New Years Eve holidays and Gator Bowl football weekends ! So much fun and some of the best restaurants anywhere. Ghost tours ,island cruises, fishing charters, Cumberland island trip,Fort Clinch,and the Ritz Carlton!

Fernandina beach is a nice slice of old Florida. The historic district has been well maintained. It is full of unique shops and dining for every taste. Parking is plentiful.

We parked at the Center Street, started to walk along strrets on both sides, a lot of shops here but closed on Christmas day, we still could do last minutes window shopping, during busy time, parking could be a problem.

The cracker style homes with old Spanish moss draping over them, a picture of the south. The small cafe nestled in between and shops. Makes it fun to see the history surrounding you
