Fernandina Beach is a quaint town on the north end of Amelia Island, one of Northeast Florida's Barrier Islands. A National HIstoric District stretches more than fifty blocks through town and features hundreds of Victorian, Queen Anne, and Italianate style homes. Many of these graceful old homes are today Fernandina Beach Florida Bed and Breakfasts.
There are many ways to explore town: on foot, by bike, or in the comfort of a horse-drawn carriage. Browse the shops, art galleries, and eateries of Centre Street. Take a tour of the historic district: self-guided tour maps are available at the Chamber of Commerce; guided walking tours are offered several times a week through the Amelia Island Museum of History, a stellar local museum housed in the old county jail (circa 1878).
The history of Amelia Island is indeed fascinating and well worth exploring. Many have claimed the island their own, as evidenced by its moniker "Isle of Eight Flags", a reference to the eight flags that have flown over Amelia Island since 1562: France, Spain (twice), Great Britain, the Patriots of Amelia Island, the Green Cross of Florida, Mexico, the Confederate States of America, and now, the United States of America.
Today, the island is a peaceful place to vacation. Outdoor recreation abounds at such places as Amelia Island State Park, where horseback riding is permitted on the beach, and Fort Clinch State Park, with its miles of bike trails and nature paths. Fish, golf, boat, or simply hunt for shells on the beach while vacationing at Fernandina Beach Florida Bed and Breakfasts.
