The northernmost sea island in the beautiful state of Florida is the thirteen-mile long Amelia Island, home to Amelia City and Fernandina Beach. Amelia is one island in a chain of barrier islands found along the east coast of the U.S. stretching from Florida to South Carolina. With a gorgeous average temperature of sixty-five degrees Fahrenheit in winter and an equally pleasant average summer temperature around eighty-one degrees, the island is a fabulous place to vacation and to live. At its widest point, it is roughly four miles wide, and all across Amelia Island, you will find picturesque state parks, sandy beaches, exquisite fine dining, lush golf courses, and so much more.
The aforementioned Fernandina Beach is a remarkable city on the island, which is found in Nassau County, Florida. It is the northernmost city on the state’s Atlantic Coast and is a principal municipality in the Greater Jacksonville area. In addition to its abundant natural beauty, the city boasts a long, rich history and is known as the “Isle of Eight Flags” because since 1562 the city has flown eight distinct national flags. It is the only city in the nation to have flown the flags of the U.S., the Confederate States of America, Mexico, the Green Cross of Florida, the Patriots of Amelia Island, Spain, Great Britain, Spain, and France. Adding to its rich heritage, Fernandina Beach is the modern shrimping industry’s birthplace, and even today shrimps boats depart from the city’s docks almost daily. The city is also home to a marvelous fifty-block historic district full of stunning Victorian architecture and home to the state’s oldest saloon, located on Centre Street.
Additional points of interest in Fernandina Beach include Fort Clinch, which was built prior to the Civil War, Amelia Island Bonhams, the Amelia Island Museum of History, and the Fernandina Beach Maritime Museum.
