Ferry
Located 20 miles south of Amelia Island on the scenic Florida A1A.

Anytime I get the chance and have the extra time going to Florida I exit the I95  and hop on the A1A.  If you are traveling south on I95 from Georgia into Florida look for the Yulee exit to Fernadina Beach or if you are traveling north into Georgia get off in Jacksonville and get the A1A at the beach.

This will set you back about an hour through the Jacksonville area if you don’t stop and look at the beautiful ocean and river scenery.

Things to look out for:  You may get a peak at an aircraft carrier in port at Mayport Naval station

Manatees and an abundance of other wildlife

Restaurants with a selection of fresh fish and other seafood , available to eat in or pack in your travel cooler

If your traveling with the little folk the ferry is great fun too!!!

Happy trails…don’t miss the Florida A1A
