2015 Dickens on Centre

This holiday season make your way to Amelia Island; from a Victorian themed Dickens on Centre to Cookie Tours there is something to make even a Scrooge merry! The season kicked off in fashion with the Annual Tree Lighting downtown followed by decorations going up all around the hotel to ring in the holidays.

The island is abuzz with anticipation of the 2nd Annual Dickens on Centre beginning Thursday, December 8th. This event features a weekend of fun filled events from a Lighted Christmas Parade to breakfast with St. Nick. See all of the events throughout the weekend here. In honor of Dickens on Centre the Residence Inn Marriott Amelia Island is excited to announce our newest holiday package Tiny Tim’s Hearthside Holiday! You will enjoy locally made hot chocolate spoons, $25 dining voucher to our some of our favorite local eateries, and transportation around the island. Reserve your very own hearthside holiday here.

This time of year is the most romantic on the island with lights twinkling around the town and a slow carriage ride under a blanket with your sweetie. Fall in love again at the Residence Inn Amelia Island with our Mistletoe Romance. Snuggle up with your love in a luxurious, spacious suite with wine, custom wine glasses, locally made hot chocolate spoons, and a slow carriage ride through Historic Downtown Fernandina. Come make memories with your favorite person and book today.

If you’re looking for a new and family friendly New Year’s Eve event, look no further! Fernandina and Amelia Island celebrate the New Year in true island fashion with the 2nd Annual Shrimp Drop. Head downtown on December 31 at 5 PM to enjoy local foods, music, and then at the stroke of 7 PM (midnight Greenwich Mean Time) watch the great Shrimp Drop followed by fireworks along the water.
