Amelia Island Named Top 6 Beach Destination!

In the June edition of Parent’s magazine, Amelia Island was the 6th best destination to bring your family.

Here’s a short recap of the article:

Oceanfront Fun On the island’s 13 miles of coastline, Main Beach Park is a gem because it has a playground, restrooms, picnic areas, and volleyball courts. “It’s also an excellent place for kids to try to find shark teeth,” says Nan Voit, director of parks and recreation.

Inland Hot Spots Take a 30-minute horse-drawn carriage ride through the historic district as a guide tells you about the island’s past—your kids will perk up when they hear about the Pirates ($15 for adults, $7 for kids 2 to 13; free for kids under 2). Then catch dinner at Timoti’s Seafood Shak, which serves up local fare. Eat outside and, after dinner, your kids can let off steam at the on-site pirate ship playground.

Castles In the Sand Set on 3-1/2 miles of shoreline is fun for everyone. You can enjoy golf, kayaking, and horseback riding on the beach.
