City Guide: Amelia Island, Florida

A barrier island off the Northeast Coast of Florida, Amelia Island is a charming mix of rich history and stunning beaches.  From family vacations to romantic getaways, this eclectic island has been our favorite family destination for generations. We love spending endless days soaking up the sun on the peaceful beach, then venturing into town for first class dining.

The island offers many activities including championship golf courses, fishing, bike trails, kayaking, paddle boarding, horseback riding and historic sites.  Known as the Isle of Eight Flags, Amelia Island has a fascinating and complex history that only adds to its unique appeal. This friendly, dog loving, foodie paradise, has everything from the world renowned Concours D’Elegance to the annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. Plan your next vacation , Florida and I guarantee it will capture your heart.
