You’ve asked permission. You’ve gotten the ring. Now all you need is the place. Amelia Island is an island of romance and the perfect backdrop to ask for the hand of the one you love. If you’re ready to get down on one knee, here are the top 10 best places to pop the question on Amelia Island.

The Beach

With 13 miles of prisine coastline, you're bound to find that perfect speck of sand to declare your love. As a matter of fact, the beaches of Amelia Island have seen more proposals than any other place on the island and I'm sure you can guess why. The waves crashing in the background. The sea salty air swirling all around. It's pure magic.

Egan’s Creek Greenway

If you're both nature lovers (and even if you're not), Egan's Creek Greenway is a special place to view all the natural beauty of Amelia Island while you propose. With over 300 acres of flora/fauna, nature and wildlife to explore and take in, you're guaranteed a "Yes" from the one you love. 

Fort Clinch

What says romance more than a centuries-old Civil War fort and grounds? The countless number of folks that have gotten down on one knee at Fort Clinch is astounding. Even better if you're both history buffs. If the actual fort isn't the "spot" then walk the tree-canopied grounds, trails, and shoreline until you find just the perfect place. 

Sail on the River

The waterways surrounding Amelia Island are full of what romantic dreams are made of and the fine folks at  Windward Sailing and Follow That Dream Sailing want to help. Book a romantic sunset sail or catamaran cruise to pop the big question and don't forget the champagne to celebrate with. Photo credit: Follow That Dream Sailing
