Amelia Island Valentine’s Day

Romance seems to just happen naturally on Amelia Island. Perhaps it's the setting. The location practically invites you to fall in love while enjoying its secluded shores, picturesque sunsets and sunrises, and all-around natural beauty. Maybe it's the tempo; relaxed and easy, it persuades you to slow down, take stock and appreciate what (or who) is right in front of you. Then again, maybe it's just something in the air, intoxicating old lovers and new ones alike. Whatever the reason, Amelia Island lends itself to romance and with Valentine's Day right around the corner, you're probably in the market for some romance.   Luckily for you, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort takes all of the work out of an Amelia Island Valentine's Day surprise. All you need to do is plan your trip. Once you and your sweetheart get here, we'll take care of the rest.
