      Fernandina Beach: The Place I call Home

      Fernandina Beach has gorgeous weather, amazing beaches, and it is the place that I have called home my whole life. Living in Fernandina is amazing because the city has a relaxing small town vibe, but you can still venture out to the big city of Jacksonville less than an hour away. I have never had a shortage of things to do around Fernandina Beach. The best areas in Fernandina are probably Main Beach Park and Fort Clinch Park. I really love both of these parks because they have gorgeous beaches and a number of scenic areas to walk around.

      Traffic can get heavier as you enter the Jacksonville area, but is not too bad usually before and after rush hour. There is a lot of nightlife, shopping, and dining around the area. I often like to venture out to River City Marketplace, which is a little over 30 minutes away. There you can find a number of stores and restaurants. My favorite restaurant there would definitely have to be Mellow Mushroom; they definitely have the best pizza in town!

      Fernandina Beach is a beautiful place and I feel very lucky that I got the chance to grow up here. There is a lot to see and do around the area and will always be the place I call home!
