Take in everything from art studios, antique shops, book stores, clothing boutiques, and souvenir gift shops. Pamper yourself at the local day spa and sample handmade fudge, ice cream, and gourmet coffee. Looking for a unique gift to take back to loved ones? Check out one of our quaint jewelry boutiques or surf shops. In addition to this, the Palmetto Walk shopping area also features home décor centers so you can feature a piece of Amelia Island in your house.

For those of us who don’t cook while on their Amelia Island Vacation, or if you desire a night out, dine at one of several Amelia Island restaurants featuring a variety of cuisine ranging from locally caught seafood to the finest steaks, plus Japanese, Cuban, French and Italian.

An Amelia Island Vacation offers an abundance of educational and fun things to do including a nature center, charter fishing cruises, putt-putt golf, community theatre, arts academy, Museum tours, Fort Clinch State Park, ceramic studio, etc. where you can get hands on entertainment.
