A Romantic Solo Weekend in Amelia Island
Amelia Island is a northeast Florida barrier island rich with history and a sense of bygone romanticism. A stay at one of the historic Italianate mansions turned B&B’s, like The Fairbanks House, will have you feeling like you’ve stepped back in time.
Amelia Island’s Fort Clinch state park is a cave of old oaks and dappled shade. Their branches come together like clasped fingers high above your head, and the Spanish moss sways lazily in the coastal breeze.
Stop by for lunch or dinner at Wicked Bao, a local favorite for seasonally inspired Asian fusion cuisine. Splurge on a luxurious dinner at the Ritz-Carlton’s SALT, where ingredients are sourced from an organic, all-natural farm that gorws varietals for flavor. Transport to Provence at Les Clos, a family-owned French restaurant with a darling outdoor courtyard.
