5 Reasons to Celebrate Easter Weekend on Amelia Island

1. The Beaches Are Beautiful This Time of Year 

The beaches are absolutely stunning in the springtime. By the time Easter rolls around, you can expect sunny days, warmer temperatures, and fewer crowds (compared to the summer months). If you’re lucky, it might even be warm enough to at least dip your toes in the water! Search for seashells, watch for wildlife, and soak up the sun. After a long winter, you deserve it! 

2. Order Delicious Food From Local Restaurants 

Amelia Island’s culinary scene is not to be missed! Our charming little island is home to some of the most amazing cuisine in the Southeast. Many restaurants will offer Easter Sunday takeout meals. In the past, restaurants such as Cucina South, Nana Teresa’s, and Pogo’s Kitchen made this option available. This year, check with us, and we’ll be happy to point you in the direction of great food. 

3. The Island Is in Full Bloom 

“The earth laughs in flowers” —Ralph Waldo Emerson 

While Amelia Island is a year-round destination, there is something especially enticing about visiting in the spring. Explore some of the best state parks, and you’ll encounter beautiful maritime forests, blooming flowers, and sunbathing wildlife. Not only will you enjoy being outdoors in the sun, but you’ll get to experience some of the local flora and fauna up close! 

4. Make Time to Relax 

There’s no better way to enhance your vacation than with an indulgent spa day. Unwind at one of the best spas on the island! Treat yourself to a luxurious deep-tissue massage or a customized facial. Allow yourself to be pampered before you return home from your Florida Easter getaway. 

5. Stay at The Fairbanks House 

If you’re planning to spend Easter on Amelia Island, then do yourself a favor and stay at The Fairbanks House. Make the most of your getaway when you make our charming, historic property your home away from home! 

Choose between elegant accommodations, each uniquely outfitted with stylish, charming decor and comfortable bedding. For a lengthier stay, we recommend one of our suites or cottages! They have wonderful amenities ranging from private kitchens and jetted tubs. 

In the mornings, you’ll wake up to the smell of freshly baked pastries, sizzling eggs, and hot coffee. Our breakfast is top-notch!
