This state park preserves Florida's history.
Beautiful drive in, very nice historical museum explaining fort history and background, very well maintained fort. The cannons were a hit with my youngest. Gorgeous views.

We have been going to Amelia Island at least once each year for the last 30 years. We often stay at the north end, beyond Atlantic Ave. in rental homes on the beach. This area is the most secluded and the far north borders on Fort Clinch Park. Larger rental homes and large condos predominate in the southern end of the Island. The quaint city of Fernandina Beach is a joy to traverse on an afternoon. We take our dog and can eat at a variety of spots that allow dogs (typically in outside eating areas). Karibo is one of our favorites. Fine dining is also quite available in the city. Joe's and Le Clos are two of our favorites. To get a taste of Amelia Island, I would suggest scheduling a night or two at the Elizabeth Pointe Lodge, a wonderful bed and breakfast at the east end of Atlantic Ave. Roam around and walk the beaches. Take a kayak tour, or just plant yourself on the beach and watch the waves roll in.

We needed a little something different to do for a bit, and this was the perfect thing. My little girl had a great time playing on the different structures throughout the park. There is also a little nature walk behind the playground.

My wife and I enjoy beach walks from this park. Fernandina Beach does a marvelous job of maintaining family friendly beaches and this is one of the must-see parts of the island's beaches.

This was the first beach I discovered while building a home here for my family. I stayed and the Amelia Hotel at the Beach and often ate at Sliders before a short evening beach hike. It was a great way to end a day of construction meetings and runs to Jacksonville to meet with suppliers, etc. I still enjoy visiting this beach with my wife now that we've settled into the area.

I've been to this beach before and love coming back. Went with a friend for the day. There's no entrance fee. It's clean, close to bars and a restaurant, has free parking, benches and small pavilions to get out of the sun. Many drive their jeeps or trucks on the sand and set up camp. It's fun to spend the day here.
