You Will Love Amelia Island

Along Florida's northeastern coast is one of the state's best kept secrets — Amelia Island. Just thirteen miles long and two miles wide, this petite island packs a big punch. You can enjoy simple pleasures like walking on the beach, or the island's seaside location, Appalachian quartz beaches, natural sand dunes and marshes.
Florida House Inn

A town with charming Southern hospitality ~ with a fifty-block area of historic homes and businesses that have been lovingly restored and are proudly on display. Its Victorian homes and cottages are a throwback to Amelia's Golden Era. Some of these homes serve as bed and breakfast inns and some are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but what all seem to have in common is an interesting background. In the early 20th Century, Amelia Island became the birthplace of the modern shrimping industry. Today, nearly 80 percent of Florida's intake of sweet Atlantic white shrimp is harvested in Amelia's waters and its downtown docks — Fernandina Harbor Marina — is still home to the shrimp fleet. While the oldest structure on the island is the Amelia Island Lighthouse, other places of intrigue include the Palace Saloon, the oldest bar in the state of Florida, and the Florida House Inn. Florida's oldest surviving tourist hotel. We spent the day touring around this beautiful southern city and hope one day to come back and stay longer ~ It is a must see place to visit.
