48 Hours in Amelia Island
Once a vacation spot for the wealthy, Amelia Island in Florida offered unspoiled beaches and incredible views of the local salt marshes. Though it is now a popular spot for east coast tourism—especially those interested in golf, seafood or simply soaking up the sunshine—not much has changed in the grand scheme of things. You’ll still find spectacular views of pristine coastlines as well as historic buildings to take you back to bygone eras.
For an ideal stay on the island, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is located to give you access to all of the small-town adventures to the north and beautiful landscapes to the south.
