Amelia Island Activities

As the only piece of land in the U.S. to have been under eight flags of domination, Amelia Island offered a wide variety of attractions to its many visitors.

Victorian homes, century-old brick buildings, palmetto trees and a recently restored colonial post office building line Civil-War era Centre Street in Amelia Island's historic district, Fernandina Beach. Stroll a bit further and you'll encounter restaurants, and a collection of shops selling antiques, collectibles, books, food, and clothing. Centre Street ends at an intracoastal waterway marina, adjacent to a fishing pier overlooking the Atlantic.

The view helps put the living colonial history of the city in the context of its timeless natural surroundings. The construction of Fort Clinch, Amelia Island's most famous historic site, began in 1847 and continued until 1861, when the Civil War erupted. Confederate forces occupied the fort, but within a year Union troops had forced them to withdraw. The fort also played a role in the Spanish-American War when U.S. forces utilized its location for a few months. Today, Fort Clinch State Park is a scenic and educational adventure, offering a memorable excursion for history enthusiasts and nature-lovers.

One weekend per month, park rangers dress in either Confederate or Union uniforms and re-enact the daily life of Civil War-era soldiers. Activities include cooking, infantry demonstrations, marching and sentry duty. Amelia Island offers a wealth of recreational activities set in an historic and scenic landscape, perfect for a brief visit or a relaxing, extended exploration.

The island's resort of choice remains the Amelia Island Plantation.
