Published Since 2001 — Amelia Island Living©

Amelia Island Living© publishes leisure and travel content combined with a mix of local business and real estate topics, including trending local news and opinion. Much of what happens around Amelia Island and its city of Fernandina Beach is related to the tourism industry and Amelia’s top attractions — the beaches and Fernandina’s downtown historic district.

Amelia Island Living© began publishing an online eMagazine 22 years ago (including an outbound eNewsletter), long before “blogs” or “blogazines” became mainstream. As a long-established local information source, during more than two decades, AmeliaIslandLiving.com has published over 2,000 articles and several thousand photographs.
