Summer seemed to slip by all too fast and you are finding yourself longing for one last dip in the ocean. Head down just over the state line into Florida to Amelia Island for a quick trip that is super family-friendly. From seafood shacks with oceanfront playgrounds to horse-drawn carriage rides through historic Fernandina—Amelia Island is an oasis of family fun.

Timoti’s Fry Shak

We heard this seafood shack had killer lobster rolls, but when we heard it also had a “shrimp boat” playset by the outdoor patio we thought we had died and gone to hush puppy heaven. Order at the window and then enjoy your fish tacos on the patio while you watch them play.
