Island Insider: Marketing Director, Tarah Dunlop
Marketing Director, Tarah Dunlop shares her own unique perspective about living on Amelia Island.  They include her favorite places to eat, shop, and explore.
Q: What makes you an Island Insider?
A: I have lived on Amelia Island for 7 years.  I have 3 children and my family owns Elizabeth Pointe where I currently work as the Marketing Director for the Inn as well as our vacation rental company, Elizabeth Pointe Vacation Rentals.  I also work as the Marketing Director for Joe Cutajar of Sotheby’s Realty. Two weeks after moving to Amelia Island I started volunteering at the Amelia Island Museum of History and am now a member of the museum’s Board of Directors.  The museum holds a special place in my heart as my passion is history and preserving the colorful past of the island.

Q: What are your favorite things to do on Amelia Island for…
• A friend being in town for the weekend? A walking tour of historic downtown, Amelia River Cruise, and a meal at The Salty Pelican.
• A day with the family? We love a Saturday downtown beginning with the Farmer’s Market, brunch at The Florida House Inn, making stops at Pajama Dave’s, Villa Villakula toystore, and sweets at Nana Teresa’s.

• Date night? My husband and I had our first date at Joe’s 2nd Street Bistro and ate at Le Clos right after our wedding ceremony so both are favorites for date night.
• A day off, just for you? My absolute favorite thing to do on a day off by myself is a treatment at The Ritz Spa followed by their ahi tuna salad by the pool.
Q: What makes Amelia Island #EverSoSlightlySpecial?
A:  The eclectic mix of restaurant, businesses, and history. And the people like Pajama Dave, Johnny Miller (our bartender Mayor) and Felix.
