Weather wasn't the most cooperative, but Amelia Island Carriages was prepared with blankets and umbrellas. Booked a carriage ride to learn some of the history of the area. We already love Amelia Island but having some of the history makes us love it even more. Shelby and Jazz make a great team. I was impressed that Shelby shared that she... More

Booked a carriage ride on our night of arrival, getting a great overview of the historic district layout from Cindy, our driver. We were picked up at our B&B and dropped off at our restaurant of choice. The horse, named Boomer, is quite the celebrity around Fernandina Beach, and even has a children's book in his honor.

This was a wonderful ride. Shelby was our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We learned a lot about the area from her. The horse that pulled our carriage was named Jazz. He was a beautiful sweet horse. I will definitely take this ride again on my next trip.

This buggy ride - there were 4 of us - is a great way to see the historical city of Fernandina and its gracious homes without having to walk it yourself. Jim was our horse and Rita our driver....both great company. Rita knew a lot about the houses we passed - beautiful old Victorians - some of which are still... More

This tour was really good. Cindy is very knowledgable and her horse Jazz is super friendly. We took the tour on Christmas Eve which made everything extra pretty because of the Christmas lights. I really enjoyed it. The tour made me want to know more about the area.
