Amelia Island Named Top 10 U.S. Island by Conde NastAmelia Island, FL – Northeast Florida’s Amelia Island has placed among the Top 10 U.S. Islands in the 2015 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Amelia Island finished in the #10 spot in a list comprised of destinations such as Maui, Kauai and Oahu, and only one other Florida island – Longboat Key – in the 28th annual competition.

“We’re proud of the year we are having on Amelia Island as our list of accomplishments and recognitions grows,” said Gil Langley, managing director of the AITDC. “It’s especially encouraging to see our efforts pay off as we continue to promote the destination to travelers around the globe who recognize the uniqueness of our little island paradise through awards such as this.”
