Pub Crawl Brews Up History in Fernandina Beach

By: Jodi Mailander Farrell


Fernandina Beach, coveted for its deep harbor and once-strategic location near the northern border of Spanish Florida, is the only city in the United States that has flown eight different national flags.

Since 1562, the nations of France, Spain, Great Britain, Mexico, the Patriots of Amelia Island, the Green Cross of Florida, the Confederate States of America and the United States have raised flags over it.

That’s a lot of history to cover, so you'd better have a drink. We have just the pub crawl for you.

One ticket delivers four pubs and a wealth of historical information about downtown Fernandina as part of the Fernandina Beach Pub Crawl hosted by the Amelia Island Museum of History.

The weekly $25 pub crawl takes you through some of the oldest saloons, bars and taverns in town. The price of admission gets you a drink at each of four pubs and a narrated tour with stories that are part of our pubs’ pasts.
