I am so excited for next weekend!
Bob called me into the office a little while ago and said that next Saturday is Small Business Saturday! That makes 3 major events for next weekend:

Thursday, 11/22: Thanksgiving! Wednesday night at the Residence Inn Amelia Island, we are treating our guests to a Holiday dinner with ham, green beans, and all the fixings! Our F&B staff is so talented, I really can’t wait to try everything!
(If you are looking for a guide to restaurants that will be open on Thanksgiving, check out this handy guide from the Amelia Island Tourist Development Council at ameliaisland.com)

Friday, 11/23: Black Friday in Downtown Historic Fernandina, complete with a Pajama Party!

Saturday, 11/24: Small Business Saturday is back, giving even more reason to shop local. Plus, with the Fernandina Beach Holiday Celebration and Tree Lighting from 2-7pm, downtown is going to be a happening place!!

If you don’t see a new blog post for a while, don’t worry – I’m probably just downtown or around the island visiting all of the amazing events this city is putting on! I’ll give this week it’s due Thanksgiving focus, but the week after – get ready for more Christmas events and announcements than your stockings can hold!

Not to mention, I hear Alice and the gang are going to be getting the lobby decked out in the finest holiday gear. I can’t wait to work my first December shifts here at the Inn. There’s room at the inn for you, too, so we’ll see you at check-in! :) www.residenceinnameliaisland.com or (904) 277-2440 for reservations!
