We TRIED to go to Amelia Island today. We ended up in a huge traffic jam due to road works on a SATURDAY. There were no signs for miles warning that there were huge delays ahead. No information as to why the long hold up. We were supposed to meet friends for lunch, but had to call them and say... More

The Visitor Center is top notch. The ladies that work there are very friendly and informative. They are not out to sell you anything. They offer an array of informative pamphlets about the area, its' attractions and maps. There is an interactive map of upcoming events and activities. These are all free to the public. Highly recommended.

Caution: There are many ‘welcome centers’ and ‘visitor centers’ that are fronts for tour companies of dubious integrity. The OFFICIAL Visitor Center at 10 West Castillo Drive, and City of St. Augustine share a website, www.staugustinegovernment.com (904/825-1000). The VC parking garage is free for the first hour, which gives time to get maps and site brochures. There are two recognized... More

We took a tour of the island, but it was not in the tram that tours the island. We took an air conditioned/heated bus, and it is run by a very knowledgeable and delightful man. It is only $10, but you need to tip him. He's funny and gives you more information that you really want to know. It was... More
