Fernandina Beach can be a bit of a tourist scene; the main strip has the occasional eclectic store but you'll definitely see your fill of "Life is Good" hats, fudge shops, and bright pink beach t-shirts. Still, I'd recommend at least stopping into Cafe Karibo for Sunday brunch, where you can enjoy their mimosa bar.

The restaurant at the RC, Salt, is excellent and is always the best meal of the trip.

The RC rents surf and skim boards, but walk further south on the beach to get to some additional action. There's kayaking which I would check out as well (have not done it, but planning on it this year with the kids). The RC has bikes and the paths around that area are good for a relaxing ride; but I believe that kayaking place rents bikes, and there's hiking and bike trails up by Fort Clinch State Park as well.

Please post back after your trip on what you enjoyed as I'm always looking to check out new stuff down there.
