Amelia Island has a wide variety of activities, tours, shopping and restaurants in a very compact space.  The local music and art scene is also quite active.  Combine that with state parks, nature trails, 13 miles of beach and at least one festival or major event every month and you’ll wish that you’d marked off a few more days for your stay with us.
