Stand Up Paddleboarding at Omni Amelia Island Plantation

There's something mesmerizing about paddling your way along the still waters of the tidal creeks at Amelia Island Plantation. As your paddle dips into the water, slowly gliding past the swaying marsh grass, you view a bird coming into roost or watch a dolphin splash in the Intracoastal Waterway. Kayaking in Walker's Creek with the Nature Center has been a favorite activity for guests and locals for many years but this year we are now offering a new way to explore the marsh waters - stand up paddleboarding!

Easter at Omni Amelia Island Plantation

We all have fond childhood memories of holidays but I have particularly fond memories of Easter.  Sure we awoke to Easter baskets filled with colored eggs, chocolate bunnies, and other delights but the real treat always waited in the fridge. We would see what the Easter Bunny brought us, then start the debacle of getting ready for church in outfits usually sewn by my mother.  Lace, bonnets, shiny new shoes, the whole get up and usually the whole family matched. But then the time came when you opened the fridge to what truly signified Easter, a gift from my grandfather for each of us. Granddaddy Jim would get my mother, sister and I real flower corsages to wear to church and my brother a boutonniere. As a child having someone send you flowers, from Michigan no less, was so much more meaningful than another stuffed bunny, chocolate egg or that green grass that gets all over the house.  This year, you can create your own holiday memories when you celebrate Easter at Omni Amelia Island Plantation!
