Amelia Island Vacations

A magnet for visitors to the dynamic city of Jacksonville, Amelia Island has much to offer visitors. Amelia Island is approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Jacksonville’s downtown area. If you are flying in, Amelia Island is about 16 miles (26 kilometers) from Jacksonville International Airport.

Many of Jacksonville’s highlights can be found within easy reach of Amelia Island, so it is a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Two sights that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the fascinating Fort Clinch State Park and the iconic Big Talbot Island State Park. Also, well worth the effort are B.E.A.K.S. and the Timucuan Ecological & Historical Preserve.

Plan a trip to at least a few of the best attractions for kids in the area, for example Anheuser-Busch Brewery. Take the children to a visit to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, and learn about some fascinating creatures.

If the sun is shining, do what the locals do and appreciate the nearby parks and reserves. There are some pleasant green escapes, so why don’t you go out and enjoy the Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park and the Huegnot Memorial Park. The conservation parks such as the Crooked River State Park in Kingsland, give visitors an insight into the species of flora and fauna that flourish in the region.

See what is in fashion locally and purchase some original souvenirs in the nearby shopping venues such as the River City Market Place.

If you're a sports fan, you’ll love EverBank Field, home of the much-loved Jacksonville Jaguars football team in winter. Even on non game days, you can still head to the stadium to catch a backstage tour.

To really get to know Amelia Island, think about booking a room close by in one of the area’s many accommodation options. If you're looking for great service and a comfortable bed, check out the amenities at the Jacksonville Airport Hotel, the Jacksonville Plaza Hotel & Suites, and the popular Best Western Jacksonville Airport.
