Tasting Tours in Historic Downtown

 Historic Downtown Fernandina Beach just got more delicious with the launch of Amelia Island Tasting Tours.

The Downtown Tasting Tour stops at 4-5 local favorite restaurants where owners and chefs will be on hand to personally present the delicious creations they have prepared especially for tour guests.  Each tasting is paired with a beer or wine that complements the food.  This three hour tour takes you on a pleasant stroll through downtown, where your guide will provide a taste of the colorful history of this "Isle of 8 Flags."  It is a great way to get an introduction to the island and scope our restaurants you will like to visit later in your stay or the next time you visit. (Note that the tour takes place during appetizer time, 2 to 5pm, but that with the generous tastings, you may not be hungry for dinner!)

The Mixology tour is described as an "on-the-go cocktail party."  Guests on this two-hour tour hear about the history of four fabled watering holes and meet the fun, creative mixologists who will share their stories about the art and craft of mixing cocktails as well as a look at each bar's history.  While walking between stops, your guide will provide the history of cocktails (and bootlegging) on Amelia Island. This tour is well-suited for office outings, pre-dinner drinks, birthdays, or bachelorette parties.

You can book your tour here.
