We love learning about the history of our favorite island vacation spot. So much to see in historic Fernandina Beach. Lovely tree lined streets with many shops...for young, old, couples and families. The local shopkeepers do a wonderful job of accommodating all of us tourists...More

Long walk, suggest you drive. Once there, you can park your car and walk everywhere within four blocks, give or take. Several good casual restaurants in area.
