Want some some great holiday decorating ideas? Love sampling tasty cookies?  Curious to peek inside Amelia Island’s gorgeous bed and breakfast inns?  Tickets for this year’s Amelia Island Bed and Breakfast Association Annual Cookie Tour, Saturday December 12th, are now on sale.  Your ticket allows you access to all six classic inns located in the heart of the downtown historic district.  While touring each inn you will sample a signature cookie offered by the inn and collect each recipe.  Trolly and carriage rides will assist guests as they stroll from inn to inn.  A portion of the proceeds this year benefits the Fernandina Beach Friends of the Public Library.  This tour is being offered in conjunction with other holiday events as downtown Fernandina Beach is transformed into a “Dickens on Centre” holiday theme.  Look for additional information soon but book your weekend now with the Blue Heron Inn.  Rooms this weekend won’t last long!

Fresh Seafood at its Best!

August 27th, 2012 by David Jones

Love fresh seafood?  Then don’t miss the recently opened Timoti’s Fry Shak!  In addition to offering daily specials, Carlin Catanzaro, manager, says the grilled fish and shrimp tacos and the fried shrimp baskets are some of the more popular items on the menu.  She adds that Timoti’s supports the local community by buying fresh produce from the downtown Farmer’s Market, local wild shrimp, and even local beers (try the Intuition line brewed in nearby Jacksonville)!  Located in the heart of the historic district (and within walking distance from the Blue Heron Inn), Timoti’s is a great place to hangout for a good bite or cold beer.  Even the kids can enjoy their own magical ship!
