One of America's few remaining unspoiled island paradises, Amelia Island is the southernmost of the chain of Atlantic coast barrier islands that stretch from North Carolina to Florida. Its rich history, 13 miles of uncrowded beaches, lush, natural setting, moss-covered oaks, unparalleled golf, boating, and fishing, stunning sunrises and sunsets, and friendly "locals" make it more than just a place to visit. Fernandina Beach is the main town birthplace of the modern shrimping industry and the shrimp boats depart the docks most days. The 50 block historic district offers classic Victorian architecture and the oldest saloon in Florida can be found on Centre Street. You can also visit Fort Clinch, a fort built before the Civil War
First settled by Oglethorpe in 1735, Amelia Island became part of East Florida and then Spanish in 1783 before being ceded to the United States with the rest of Florida in 1821.
