We stayed in a great Florida State Park on the Atlantic Ocean. One of the main tourist attractions is the 50 block area of downtown Fernandina which reflects Victorian architecture.
The other is Fort Clinch, which we were in luck and on the first of each month the do a reenactment. In 1842 the US Government purchased a tract of land on the northern end of the island, at the Florida-Georgia border. A military installation was to be built on the property, to guard the mouth of the St. Mary's River, protect coastal and interior shipping, and defend the deepwater port of the city.
