Historic Photo Safari

Want a fun way to see what historic downtown Fernandina Beach has to offer?  Grab your friends and your camera and see if you can find:

1. A seagoing vessel that hauls in the tasty crustaceans that go great in a basket

2. The oldest hotel in Florida (and the lovely inhabitant of its courtyard)

3. One of the two pirates who never seem to leave Centre Street

4. The newest statue in town

5. A treasured tree set near galloping carousel horses

6. A peaceful resting place whose name means “beautiful woods”

7. The house that housed the movie version of Pippi Longstocking

8. A saloon that served ice cream during Prohibition

9. The building marked by three stars

10. A spot rumored to be haunted
