The City of Fernandina Beach offers a tour of the Amelia Island Lighthouse every first and third Wednesday of each month. This is one of the most historic landmarks on Amelia Island. St. Augustine, Florida, may claim to be the oldest ‚Äúcontinuously-occupied city‚Äù in the United States, but Fernandina Beach has bragging rights to claim the oldest lighthouse in the state.
The fee for this tour is $5.00 per adult and $3.00 for any child under 12 years old. There is a minimum participation of 10 people and a maximum of 25 for each tour. The bus leaves the Atlantic Recreation Center (2500 Atlantic Avenue) promptly at 10:00am on the day of the tour. Call 904-277-7350 for more information.
Special Note: The tour does not allow anyone to the top of the lighthouse.
