Are Jacksonville/Amelia Island beaches good for kids (low tide possibilities)/Good cheap digs?

by EllaVadem


Three questions, really:

1) Are the beaches at Amelia Island as good as those of Sanibel Island, neither of which we've visited, in terms of having water which is low, warm, good for kids?

2) Any great, inexpensive places to stay that you know about? e.g., 100/night?

3) How long does it take to get to Amelia Island from Jacksonville Airport, and do we need to rent a car?

Thanks for your help!

All best,

Beaches are nice but water is not near as warm as south florida, and gulf coast. most jax beach hotels and amelia hotels are around $150 per night. You can find deals. try hotels across the street from the beach. On Amelia the best western and the Hampton inn on Sadler are a few blocks from the beach and in that price range. There is also the Amelia Inn and suites that is across the street from the beach, not sure of the cost though. The trip takes about 35-45 minutes, no need for a rental car on the island, Southern Comfort Transportation is a great inexpensive car service to get you to and from Jacksonville international airport (approx $45 to either Amelia or Jax Beach)

Just like homemade

by Carnation about Yesterdays

A wonderful restaurant downtown where they actually served soup on the menu. A great atmosphere inside where they have memorabilia hanging on the walls and mirrors all around giving the illusion of space. It was quite busy when we ate here one evening and the food was just delicious.
Opening Hours: Monday - Thursday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday - Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays

Stingray Exhibit at the Jacksonville Zoo

by madcowmemories

The Sting Ray Exhibit is awesome, especially if you have kids. My kids loved it. They got to not only see the stingrays, but pet them as well. One note - you have to pay an additional fee to see this exhibit.

We live in the area and go to this zoo often. On this particular trip, the rhinos were fighting and the jaguar was out and active. It seems like every time we go, you get to see something new. You can see all of these animals and more in our "Our Day at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens" at http://www.armadillopepper.com. Click on the "Fun Stuff" link.

Fernandina Beach: a historic pirate town

by noidiotsplease

The northern third of Amelia Island is dominated by the historic pirate town of Fernandina Beach, birthplace of the modern shrimping industry. Much of the red brick architecture along Centre Street in the town's historic district reflects the 1800s and early 1900s. Today, a number of interesting shops and restaurants add to the street's allure. The surrounding neighborhoods feature many fine examples of retored Victorian homes, some of which are bed and breakfasts.

Closer to the sea, Fort Clinch State Park includes a well-preserved brick and earth Civil War fort with lots of tunnels and chambers surrounded by acres of woods with hiking trails, camping facilities and the northernmost beach in Florida. Nearby, Main Beach is the town's most popular beacharea where small motels, whimsical vacation rentals and bed and breakfasts provide an alternative to the ritzy five-diamond oceanfront resorts that dominate the rest of Amelia Island

While Fernandina is normally a sleepy little town, each May thousands of visitors from around the Southeast crowd Centre Street for the annual Isle of 8 Flags Shrimp Festival. This three-day art and food festival is the city's most famous and celebrated event.
