Fernandina Beach, FL

About Fernandina BeachThis centuries-old town on Amelia Island features a variety of architectural styles. The Victorian district is scattered across 50 blocks, including residential and commercial buildings and a popular shopping area. The heart of downtown is Centre Street, an eight-block pedestrian-friendly corridor leading to the Intracoastal Waterway and a marina, where shrimp boats unload the catch of the day and charter boats depart for sightseeing and fishing. On Centre Street at Second Avenue is the Palace Saloon, built in 1878 and reputedly the oldest in the state. A hand-carved, 40-foot mahogany bar and hand-painted murals decorate the interior; phone (844) 441-2444.

Fernandina Beach is the northern terminus for a portion of scenic highway extending 105 miles south via SR A1A to Daytona Beach.

The first week in May the town celebrates the local shrimping industry and its early days under the flags of eight nations with the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival.
