Fernandina Amelia Island

Scenic Ride 39

There are few places in Florida that can match the historical legacy of the northeastern corner of the state. Eight different flags, including those of Mexico, Spain, France, and England have laid claim to Amelia Island and the surrounding territory in a timeline that stretches back more than 400 years. This month's ride runs through the coastal marshlands, down the coastline, and along the St. Johns River. Along the way, you can turn back the pages of time in historic Fernandina Beach or hit the beach on Little Talbot Island, one of the few undeveloped barrier islands left on the Florida coastline.
