Amelia Island


If you're looking for a tranquil getaway, give a good look at Amelia Island, along Florida's northeast coast. Just 30 miles from Jacksonville, it is a world apart. Golden-hued sands and guided horseback rides along the shore. Dolphin and osprey and maybe even a glimpse of the endangered right whale. All of this, plus luxury hotels and a wonderful selection of bed and breakfasts make Amelia Island the perfect spot for gentle recreation, historical exploration (it was controlled by France, Spain and England) or just enjoying a good book. In fact, the Condé Nast Readers' Choice Awards panel agrees: Amelia Island consistently ranks among its "Top 10 U.S. Islands."
