Looking for something interesting to do while vacationing in Florida? Egans Creek GreenwayResidence Inn Amelia Island is located very near the Egans Creek Greenway, its entrance is right behind our hotel! Aside from being a beautiful nature trail, the greenway is one of many registered volkssport trails of Walkin’ Nassau, a part of the American Volkssport Association (AVA). The sport originated in Germany, and was brought back to the U.S. by servicemen who enjoyed the activity. They have walking clubs and events all over the United States in the most beautiful locations.  People from all over the country including Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, and other parts of Florida visit here to walk the trail and receive credit in their "passport" to earn points toward their status in the AVA. Along Egans Creek Greenway you will find the pristine untouched nature of the Timucuan Preserve. There is also opportunity to see wildlife such as alligators, turtles, birds, and butterflies. Book your stay with us and visit Egans Creek Greenway, along with all the other natural charming views on the island. We look forward to having you!
