Totally off the beaten path, but just a short drive from JAX beaches, this preserve on Fort George Island brings together some of northern coastal Florida's iconic marshes and swamps with the historical ruins of the Kingsley Plantation, a National Park Service site. Part of the fun of detouring here is the partly paved, partly potholed road around the island, ...

    This place takes in injured birds from all over the U.S. Free but they ask for donation. Apply mosquito spray before going. It is amazing.

    We didn't take any guided tours just walked the grounds and read the info boards. It was well worth the short stop. This is a gripping glimpse into the majesty and horror of a slave enabled lifestyle.

    Amelia Island tops off a wonderful string of Florida State Parks start just north of the Mayport Ferry. Most offer fantastic sandy beaches stretching toward the horizon. Little Talbot Island has a wonderful campsite on the inner coastal waterway and amazing beaches and picnic facilities on the Atlantic Ocean.

    Amelia Island tops off a wonderful string of Florida State Parks. They all offer fantastic sandy beaches stretching toward the horizon. Big Talbot has a shaded picnic area at the north end overlooking the inlet at the southern end of Amelia Island which I especially like.

    This is our 3rd Segway tour and the first on the "off road" model. I prefer the nimbler street model but traveling in sand over roots and generally rough terrain was way cool. I wish these tours were longer. We went on the Point Isebel trip and visited the Kingsley Plantation before hand by car. The tour was well guided ...

    Whenever possible we take the ferry back from Jacksonville. It takes about 15 minutes longer than taking the boring fast paced I-95 route if you are east of Jacksonville anywhere near the beaches. You do have to time your trip or you could end up waiting a max of 30 minutes if you just miss the ferry. It leaves Mayport ...

    Although I don't fish much I do enjoy the beauty of this unspoiled southern tip of Amelia Island. The Florida State Parks web site describes it better than I ever could, "The park protects over 200 acres of unspoiled wilderness along the southern tip of Amelia Island. Beautiful beaches, salt marshes and coastal maritime forests provide visitors a glimpse of ...

    The northern tip of Amelia Island is graced with a fantastic park. The Fort itself although wonderful is just a small part of the experience. The pier, gorgeous beaches, excellent camp sites, miles of bike and hiking trails and hourly cannon firings on the weekend all make for must visit experience.
