Well we always knew Amelia Island was a “hidden gem,” but don’ take our word for it – the island has starred in two separate magazines this month as a top coastal destination! Coastal Living Magazine’s February 2013 issue cites Amelia Island, Florida as one of the “Top 10 Places to Go in 2013.” In fact, our island was the only “wish list” spot identified in the United States! It ranked among stars such as St. Vincent, Wales, and Okinawa, Japan. Conde’ Nast Traveler February 2013 issue also highlights Amelia Island in its special pullout section. ”Sun, swimming, surfing and sailing…who could ask for anything more? But should the beach get to be just too blissful, there’s horseback riding, biking, and an almost-deserted island to satisfy the landlubber in you,” the writer hypes. Here at the Blue Heron Inn we couldn’t agree more! We might add that we are just one easy block from Centre Street, the heart of the historic district, with its quaint cafes and varied first-rate restaurants. Within a couple of blocks from the Blue Heron Inn, you can enjoy Spanish, Portuguese Mexican, Asian, Italian, and Irish food, not to mention assorted bars, ice cream and dessert spots. After enjoying a drink or dinner, wind through all the various streets downtown and explore the numerous boutiques and galleries. We’ll think you’ll agree, Amelia Island is hot!
