We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Guide To Amelia Island, Florida

Amber Hunter

It's likely that when you think of vacationing in Florida, Miami is the first place that comes to mind. And for good reason--it's definitely somewhere that packs in the glamour. But there's a hidden gem up in northern Florida that offers a quainter vacation experience: Amelia Island. 


Stay 

Ritz-CarltonOffering a spa, golf course, and a treasure hunt for the little ones this Ritz-Carlton is a great option for enjoying the island. 

Omni Amelia Island Plantation ResortThe Omni has 404 spacious rooms, its own golf course, and views of the Atlantic from a large multi-teared pool deck. 

Eat

29 South: Head to 29 South for home-cooked, organic meals with a touch of southern inspiration. 

Cucina South: One of the best Italian joints on the island, with a constantly changing menu.

Bob's and David's are go-tos for perfectly cooked steaks and fine dining experiencies. 

For pizza that will please, look no further than Pi and for an eclectic family friendly menu, head to Cafe Karibo.

Leddy's Porch, Doo Wop Diner, or Beach Diner are the perfect casual locations for a tasty breakfast. 

Fernandina's Fantastic Fudge: Located in the historic downtown area of Amelia, this sweets shop is not to be missed!

Do

Historic Downtown: Walk along centre street and head into the various quaint shops and get lost in the giant antique stores.

Kayaking: Take a trip into the marshy side of Amelia Island and spend a day kayaking. It's beautiful and a great work out. 

Beach Day: Of course, you can't go to an island without spending a fair amount of time at the beach. If you have the time, pay a visit to the historic American Beach. 

Take a tour of the Old Fort: Finally, it's worthwhile to view the Old Fort, even if you aren't the biggest history buff.
