5 Things to Do for Father’s Day on Amelia Island
1. Book a Vacation Package
Does your dad love to explore the outdoors? If so, add our Outdoor Adventure on Amelia Island package to his reservation at The Addison! This vacation package includes a private, two-hour eco-tour and a three-hour guided kayak tour. It’s a great way to experience the natural beauty of Amelia Island!
2. Fish at Fort Clinch State Park
There’s no better way to spend a summer day than fishing. Tell dad to pack his fishing poles to cast a line at Fort Clinch State Park! This Florida state park offers a variety of fishing options including inshore, offshore, and surf fishing. Or, travel eight miles south to George Crady Fishing Pier State Park. This mile-long bridge sits atop some of the most abundant fishing waters in the state!
3. Spend an Afternoon on the Green
If your dad is a golfer, book a tee time for him at one of the many golf courses on Amelia Island! A few of our favorites include the Golf Club of Amelia Island, the Fernandina Beach Golf Club, and the Amelia National Golf & Country Club. The North Hampton Golf Course is another favorite among locals and visitors alike. Many of our guests have golfed here and have been very pleased!
4. Visit Marlin & Barrel Distillery
There’s nothing like a stiff drink after a day of exploring the island. Be sure to tell dad about Marlin & Barrel Distillery! This craft distillery makes some of the best local libations on the island. It’s the perfect place to pick up a bottle of rum, vodka, gin, or cello to enjoy on the patio at The Addison on Amelia Island!
