Amelia Island – St. Augustine

Florida’s north Atlantic Coast has a rich history highlighted by its periods of Spanish, French, British and American rule. The area is a popular vacation destination known for its golf courses, beaches, and historic attractions.

St. Augustine is considered the oldest continually inhabited city in the United States, founded in 1565 by Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles.

Amelia Island was first colonized by the French in 1562 when French explorer, Jean Ribault named it Isle de Mar. By 1565, Spanish forces took over the island, killing the French colonists. They later renamed the island, Isla de Santa Maria. The island got its final name in the mid-1700 when the British captured the area from the Spanish and renamed the island “Amelia Island” in honor of Princess Amelia, the daughter of King George II of England.
