Explore Historic City of Fernandina on Amelia Island

Fernandina Beach has its old-fashioned “Main Street” called Centre. It’s the prominent corridor, eight blocks long, in the downtown historic district. Anchored by the city’s harbor, vintage buildings line the sidewalks of this Victorian-era streetscape.
