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.

Sliders Seaside Grill

An oceanfront tiki bar, playground and live music make Sliders a favorite for families. Watch the waves from your table as the kids play nearby in the sand. Don’t miss the fried pickles and be sure to go early to beat the crowd.
