Amelia Island is full of natural, pristine beauty and rich history. Among the many beautiful places to visit, Fort Clinch State Park offers something for everyone. Search for sharks teeth on the miles of rarely touched sandy beaches, fish off of the half-mile long pier, or soak in the untouched beauty of the north end of Amelia Island. Located throughout the park are winding bike paths through beautiful tree canopies, walking trails, and lots of wildlife to observe. Every first weekend of the month, enjoy the Union Garrison at Fort Clinch. Take a tour through the Civil War era fort, observing how they lived then including living quarters, kitchen, bakery, laundry, and even a quaint general store. As you tour the fort, go back in time with the live reenactors in period clothing, telling stories of how it is to live during that time. Residence Inn Amelia Island is located just a short drive from Fort Clinch State Park, as well as the beautiful historic district, and just two blocks from the gorgeous beaches of Amelia Island. Come visit us and see the charm of our little island!
