- Picture This.
Whether you love nature or history, a stop at Fort Clinch is a must. The striking backdrop of the 1,400 acre park will have you reaching for your camera. Look across the St. Marys River to catch a glimpse of Cumberland Island’s famous wild horses.
- TRAVEL BACK IN TIME.
Fernandina Beach, Florida’s second oldest city is home to a quaint Victorian district with an eclectic mix of historic homes, galleries, restaurants and boutiques. Pedal through the Silk Stocking District where the town’s most prominent citizens built Victorian gingerbread houses. Stop at Kate’s Tree, a towering monument to one homeowner’s insistence that her tree was more important than a straight city street.

Grab some provisions for a picnic or just order some authentic local cuisine to go at La Sureña, a grocery and taquería. Pick up a growler of craft beer at one of our local microbreweries, Mocama, AIBC or First Love Brewing and enjoy the view of Tiger Island while you enjoy a cool, coastal breeze.
