Located just north of Jacksonville, FL, Amelia is very accesible from the airport and is an easier Florida destination than other more southern locales.
I stayed at the Omni Resort since my extended road trip with Abby required a dog friendly hotel. It was a beautiful facility with lots of options – biking, kayaking, boating, flying kites, etc. The rooms were lovely and I had a fantastic view of the ocean. Not only does this resort have so much to offer, but Amelia and Fernandina in general do as well. On a previous trip here I went on a horseback excursion along the white sand beaches with Kelly Ranch. It was a wonderful experience I’ll never forget.
I’ve been to the area several times, but this was my first February visit. While it was definitely too cold to swim during this trip, I lucked out with the weather. With a pair of shorts and sweatshirt I was able to walk the beaches for miles on end and collect a huge bag of shells for decorating. I also spent some time kayaking and biking, which were so peaceful in the off tourist season.
If you’re looking for a place for a peaceful respite with beautiful beaches and you want to bring Fido, Amelia Island is definitely the place to go!
