Living here in Florida, we do get to enjoy the Sunshine State year-round. And while we appreciate the many many many tourists that come to visit, sometimes it pays to live here too. These Florida Resident Rates for Summer Travel have just opened up. Have you planned your summer vacations yet?

Amelia Island is also home to Fernandina Beach, once a vibrant Victorian seaport village, and now a charming downtown district of eclectic shops, attractions, and eateries.

Amelia Island is inviting travelers to make the most of their stay with “Free Night, Any Night” deals this summer. Visitors can choose from several participating island accommodators, including celebrated bed and breakfast inns, vacation rentals, and family-owned and popular chain hotels, each offering a free night to guests who book a qualifying stay.
