Do not miss going here and although pricey, worth the money. The tasting is free and you can pick what you like. The rum was as good as any. The gin is unique and different from London or Amsterdam stuff. This is light on the juniper and adds a lemon grass flavor. We have all had lemoncello, but the greatfruitcello is worth a bottle. This week they are launching their bourbon so look forward to that.

Large sites, 2 separate campgrounds. Well worth a visit. The fort is especially nice too. We enjoyed it all.

All Welcome Centers have some value, and this one has several. It has a friendly and informative desk employee, plenty of pamphlets for ideas in the area, clean bathrooms, and worthy of snapping some pictures outside the location.

Amelia Island Historic District

Reviewed By Brian S - Meaford, Canada

We loved learning about the history of this interesting area. We found great antique shops. There are excellent art galleries and nice restaurants. For us, the most attractive feature was the beautiful old homes of the historic district within an easy walk of Centre Street. Photographers will love this place.

Main Beach Park

Reviewed By JennInFlorida - Jacksonville, Florida

This is a great public access point. There's lots of free parking, decent bathroom facilities, a playground for kids, lots of great benches and walkways. It's right by the beach and an easy walk over to the beach areas. The Sandbar and Kitchen is a fun restaurant right on the beach you can enjoy during your visit.

Thirty block historic district.

Amelia Island, clean beach, no it doesn't have shops or a boardwalk like the Jersey shore, yes you can drive on and park only within a certain location at Sliders restaurant. Excellent for walking, sitting, and playing in the water. Many of the beach houses are beautiful and some can be purchased for and into the millions. We love wintering here.

This museum showcases the region's rich history under eight national flags.

Reviewed By GlobalExplorer - Denver, Colorado

The history of Amelia Island is quite fascinating given that the island has existed under eight different flags over the centuries. This museum really does a very nice job of articulating that history along with excellent displays. A definite must-see during your visit to Amelia Island.

Peters Point Beachfront Park

Reviewed By Susan M - Fernandina Beach, Florida, United States

I walk this beach every Friday morning as part of the Amelia Island Turtle Watch, looking for nests or emergences. The trash on this section of beach seems to exceed the trash everywhere else. It's too bad, because it has such nice and easy access for beachgoers. I wish they would take away the beach driving here. I fill my trash bag 1/4 full on the half mile I walk where beach driving is NOT allowed and fill it all the rest go the way up where driving is allowed. Unfortunate.

Amelia Community Theatre

Reviewed By Kayakers-2 - Jacksonville, FL

Having viewed plays on both stages, you will surely find a show that touches a nerve or pulls on the strings of your heart. Volunteers run just about everything here, from concessions to stage management to show direction. Cast members and crew work for joy of the art, and there has never been a lack of passion. So happy to live close enough to experience all the effort and talent. Rabbit Hole, currently running, is a poignant story of loss, pain, and grief, with enough humor to keep the story from becoming overwhelming. Congratulations to the director, cast and crew for the excellent presentation.
