Why take a vacation in your own backyard? Make new friends and experience the amazing things Amelia Island has to offer. Sure, we live here, but there are so many things we have never done! The free hotel breakfast is great, but the best part of a Locals Weekend Out is the final elevator ride to the lobby when you check-out of your hotel and someone on the elevator asks, “So, where are you from?”

You respond with “I live right here!” and watch them turn green with envy. Quickly, you click your heels three times and add, “There’s no place like home!”
