FERNANDINA BEACH


If you're planning a Fernandina Beach vacation and you want information on area sights, entertainment, Fernandina Beach hotel and resort savings, you've come to the right place!

Fernandina HotelsBring along your adventurous spirit, because there's plenty to explore nearby in the Victorian seaport village of Fernandina Beach, where you can also enjoy some of the world's sweetest shrimp. In fact, Fernandina is the birthplace of the modern shipping industry. And today many old world customs are still preserved. Here, the skill of net-making remains a handcrafted specialty.

Bring your walking shoes, because you'll also find a National Register historic district that covers over 50 blocks. Enjoy a stroll down Fernandina's main boulevard of Centre Street, which is lined with a collection of antique shops, boutiques, fine restaurants, historic homes and late Victorian Inns.

Another Centre Street favorite is Florida's oldest tavern, The Palace Saloon, once the haunt of the Vanderbilts, DuPonts and Carnegies. The Florida House Inn, the oldest continuously operating hotel in the state, has hosted everyone from U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant to Cuban revolutionary JosÚ MartÝ.

From charming white clapboard to ornate gothic revival, the historic churches of Amelia can be appreciated for their architectural design and religious significance. First Presbyterian is the oldest church in Fernandina dating back to 1860 and is recorded in the Library of Congress. Enjoy the splendor of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, which has been called "a great ornament to our city." This church was a departure at the time, boasting ornate windows adorned with stained glass.

Also enjoy a visit to the historical Fort Clinch, a monument to the era of the Civil War.
