3.) Amelia Island- Rated "G" for Glamping

There are few things better than the cool breezes of February in Palm Beach County, but if you're still itching for a little bite to your Florida winter, then look no further than Amelia Island. With its beautiful beaches, charming downtown, and forests of oaks strung with Spanish moss, a trip up here is truly a one of a kind escape. Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Georgia (look North across the brackish waters and you'll see it!), Amelia Island delivers a romantic blend of Southern charm and island time.  

Pitch your tent at the Fort Clinch Campground for lovely beaches littered with interesting shells, glorious dunes, rich history at the old Spanish fort, and awesome mountain biking trails. You'll be welcomed by friendly staff (who refer to the island as 'Baja Georgia') and an endless canopy of live oak trees. Don't forget to peruse downtown and enjoy a vibrant art community, delightful small bookstore, and the joys of wandering through a Saturday Farmer's Market with plenty of local fare to offer.
