Experience the Best of Amelia
30 Miles Never Looked So Good
Our 2024 courses take you all over the Island so that you can see the full beauty of Amelia.
Enjoy the ocean views, breezes, and even a few miles on the hard-packed sands. Meander down tree canopied streets dripping in Spanish moss and watch the wild horses over on Cumberland Island. Get a selfie at the historic Fort Clinch Fort and cross over gorgeous marsh creeks filled with herons, egrets and pelicans via scenic boardwalks. Finally, no visit to Amelia would be complete without strolling through the charming downtown of Fernandina Beach. We’ve got it all!
