Amelia Island is much more than a place to enjoy the beach and soak up the sun! With a rich, colorful historic past full of pirates, maidens, and a thriving industrial landmark for the South, the island is a very interesting place to explore. Our charming historic district is the perfect place to soak up the culture and romance of stories of the past. Enjoy a sunset carriage tour around town and hear stories of past families, romances, and how the little city of Fernandina Beach got its start. For those interested in spooky lore, enjoy the walking ghost tour throughout the historic district, stopping at different houses to hear the scary stories. Shop at the quiant boutiques, art galleries, and souvenir shops located downtown, where there is something for everyone. Stay with us at Residence Inn Amelia Island and enjoy all the charm of Amelia Island!
