I would describe the historical district as a cross between Florida and Oregon. Just the right amount of crunchiness. Wonderful selection of shops and restaurants in a quaint old beach town. Next time we will definitely bring our bikes!

Make sure to stop at the visitor center to get a list of the historic places. Enjoyed walking the town and looking at the architecture but wish the houses had info printed somewhere.

Definitely glad we stopped after our eco tour boat ride. Was so cute we were drawn to it, we hadn't planned a stop there. Some nice restaurants, ice cream shops, unique stores, etc. Pretty streets.

Strolling the Amelia Island historic district is truly a joy. The streets are lined with locally owned restaurants, shops, artisans, and just enough tee shirt and ice cream shops to make it family fun. Leave about two hours to enjoy the sights, unless you stay...More
