The Amelia Island Lighthouse is beautiful. It was not open to visitors when we went, but it was still a beautiful place to visit. I love, love, love lighthouses. This one is very unique and was a great stop for us.

limited access and views of this lighthouse which was disappointing. GPS will take you into a neighborhood and arriving in someone's backyard basically with a locked gate around the lighthouse.
