The birthday of our nation is coming soon and Amelia Island will be celebrating with the Stars and Stripes Freedom Festival. The City of Fernandina will be hosting this event at Main Beach with delicious food, live music, face painting, and more! Enjoy family fun with a homemade apple pie baking contest and a hot dog eating contest. The event will also host a “Touch A Service Vehicle” area where kids and adults can see firetrucks, police cars, and everything else with sirens and flashing lights! In part of the park will be a “Make-a-Video to the Troops” to pass on thank you’s and encouragement to those in the service. Spend the 4th of July with us at Residence Inn Amelia Island and enjoy a relaxing stay in one of our deluxe suites. We are conveniently located just a couple blocks from the pristine white beaches of Fernandina and a short drive from the charming historic district. The property will also host an All American Cookout around July 4th with hamburgers, hotdogs, all the fixings, watermelon, and the rest of the  fun food that comes with sweet Summertime!
