What if you could put your hectic life on pause – just for the weekend? A chance to disconnect from your screen and reconnect with family, friends and real-world fun that you can only have here. Would you do it?
Immerse yourself in a variety of events from an open-air, free concert to picnicking by the sea, all made even better when you look up from your phone and enjoy the moment. Get Away to Amelia Island and make memories that will stay with you long after your mobile devices stop working. Here are 7 good ways to Come Together with those you love.
Kick off your Friday night downtown at Sounds on Centre, Amelia Island’s free, open-air concert series. Put down your phone and pick up your dancing partner or sit back and enjoy the music while the island vibe makes you feel like a local. Held the first Friday of April, June, August, September and October and first Thursday in May – 6-8pm.
For a chance to connect with yourself on a deeper level in a place that demands your attention, Deb Cunningham’s morning beach yoga will leave you in awe of the vastness of the ocean and refreshed to begin your day.
Break bread with the ones you love in a place you love. Luxe Picnics by Les will take care of all the work for you with lavishly decorated Bohemian-style picnics for small intimate gatherings of up to 8 guests. Set-up at your favorite spot on the beach or at a park. The most important thing is being together in the moment.
There’s nothing better than a day paddling on the water and exploring the back waters and creeks of Amelia Island. Kayaking is an excellent way to view the many birds of the marsh and wildlife in the coastal wetlands as well as local flora & fauna. Capture these special moments in nature with your eyes only so you don’t miss a thing.
It’s difficult to hunt for the elusive shark’s tooth with a cell phone in your hand. Shark’s teeth are hard to see in the sand and it takes some serious concentration to keep your eyes on the prize. Try it on your own or take a tour with Amelia Shark Tooth Adventures. You may find the teeth of a great white or hammerhead!
Fishing on and around Amelia Island is a year-round activity with endless opportunities for those looking to bait a hook in the backwaters and Intracoastal waterways, or for those who want to take it out to the Gulf Stream. Mother nature is quite a-luring from the water. Eyes up and on the horizon!
Take in all the sights and sounds of an unforgettable horseback ride along the beautiful Atlantic shoreline. Call Amelia Island Horseback Riding or Happy Trails Walking Horses and saddle up for a tour of the beach like you’ve only dreamed about. This is one of your bucket list items imagined!
