Amelia Top Picks

Where First Coast - - WHERE NOW -

Think like an in­sider with these five tips to make the most of your visit on this su­per-cool is­land.

TAKE A TOUR

How­ever you like your boat ride, be it fish­ing ori­ented or a quiet sun­set cruise, the his­toric port at Fer­nan­d­ina beach has many op­tions and a help­ful in­for­ma­tion booth to help you choose.

CROSS THE BOR­DER

About an hour north of Amelia Is­land is Ge­or­gia’s Cum­ber­land Is­land Na­tional Seashore. Ac­ces­si­ble by ferry, vis­i­tors can ex­plore the is­land known for its herds of wild horses and undis­turbed nat­u­ral beauty.

BRING THE KIDS

The draw at Timoti’s, be­sides the del­ish fish sand­wiches and hush pup­pies, is the pirate ship play­ground where kids can play while mom and dad en­joy a glass of wine.

GO KAYAK

You may see mana­tees, gators and wild birds dur­ing a peace­ful pad­dle through calm, in­land wa­ters. Ask your concierge for a sug­ges­tion on an out­fit­ter.

JUST CHILL

Open since 1903, Palace Sa­loon serves bev­er­ages to sea-go­ing folk and lo­cal yokels.
