This is a quaint little area but there is nothing special about it. You can walk the entire thing, including browsing in the shops in about an hour or so - depending on how long you stay in each shop.

The area was nice but not what I expected. It was full of shops and boutique style stores which is nice if that is what you are looking for.

Walking along the waterfront and shopping in the quaint store fronts were the highlight of Amelia Island. There are plenty of restaurants and benches to sit for a while as you take in the sights, sounds and views. Highly recommend it.

My wife and I enjoyed a getaway weekend on Amelia Island. We wandered around downtown taking in sun set at the Harbor. Great view to take in sunset!

Lots of unique shops, restaurants and bars to try. Great place to just stroll down the streets to take it all in and appreciate the architecture. Very clean and if you are lucky, you may get to see locals signing, playing acoustic guitar to listen...More
