Amelia Island History Travel Guide

Once upon a time, pirate boots stomped along these shores. Thousands of years ago, the ancient Timucua tribe built their civilization here. And this coveted little island off Florida’s northeast coast is the only place in America where eight different national flags have flown. Living history is woven into the Amelia Island experience. You can taste Gullah Geechee heritage in the shrimp and grits, or play on the beach that was home to Florida’s first Black beach resort. Greet the day like American royalty in a Victorian-era B&B, or envision the days of the Civil War as you walk the walls of Fort Clinch. Come experience every era of America. Making history is an Island thing.
