Pedal Pushers. Wind your way from the resort and go north along the Amelia Island Trail. It’s a great way to see miles of the Atlantic coast, crystal white beach dunes and coastal oak forests.
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.
Plan a Picnic. 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.
Shopping in the Centre. Wander Fernandina’s downtown and pop into one of the many antique stores. Browse locally-owned galleries, jewelers, confectioners, surf shops, fishing outfitters, booksellers and men’s and women’s specialty boutiques in this historic seaport.
Lounge Act. Sink your toes in the sand and lounge on the the beach at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Enjoy the tranquility of miles of dune-lined beachfront or relax in the privacy of your room or suite; each guestroom boasts a private balcony with coastal or direct ocean views.
Ride Off Into the Sunset. Return to Peters Point in time to meet your steed for a sunset horseback ride on the beach with Amelia Island Horseback Riding.
