Celebrate Independence Day on Amelia Island

Independence Day celebrations all over the country may look a little different this year with new safety measures implemented. Amelia Island will go ahead with their beloved hometown July 4th fireworks display - but with a few adjustments. 

As in years past, the fireworks will be held at the downtown waterfront/marina area and are set to go off at 9pm. However, to encourage social distancing the extra festivities will have to wait until next year. So… just where is the best place to socially distance yourself AND watch the sky light up in celebration of our nations birth?

From a Boat in the Middle of the Harbor

Get the boat rental hook-up with Amelia Island Boat Club and watch the fireworks from your very own boat anchored in the harbor. TIP: A boaters certificate is required to rent a boat

The Salty Pelican

Order some Pelican Wings or Signature Broiled Oysters while you watch the sun set over the Amelia River and the sky light up with fireworks. TIP: Go upstairs for an even grander view

Amelia River Cruises

The always popular Amelia River Cruises wants you to relax with your favorite adult beverage, cruise the Amelia River, listen to great live music, and celebrate the USA on their BYOB Sunset Cruise!  TIP: This cruise sells out fast 

Brett's Waterway Cafe

Dine on creative land or sea dishes served in a casual dining atmosphere and enjoy the view as you overlook the Fernandina Harbor and marina on the Amelia River. TIP: Sit on the outdoor deck for the best view 

The Hampton Inn & Suites Harbor Front

Enjoy breath-taking views of the Harbor and fireworks from the comfort of your very own room or on the poolside deck at the Hampton Inn & Suites Harbor Front. TIP: This weekend sells out fast. Make reservations now to secure your room.
