Florida’s Dept. of Environmental Protection plans to open 80 state parks during “Phase One” of reopening the state’s park system. Amelia Island State Park is on the list to open May 4, 2020 “for active recreation only.”
Watch a beach sunrise. Take a walk. Ride a bike or go fishing. Or just sit and relax along the seashore. Beaches opening for all activities (with social distancing).
Amelia Island faces a dilemma. The island has a tourism-based economy, with no tourists. 2,700 people from the local tourism industry have been suddenly cast to the unemployment lines.
