FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. – 2008 was an exciting travel year. My favorite “new” destination I visited was Amelia Island.
Located near Jacksonville in northeastern Florida, Amelia Island is a roughly six-hour drive from Atlanta. Though it’s surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the Intra-coastal waterway, Nassau Sound and the Cumberland Sound, one of the East’s largest and deepest inlets, Amelia Island hardly seems like an island.
Once there, visitors will find plenty of history and culture.
