Located on Amelia Island in Nassau County, Florida, Fernandina Beach is a beautiful city with gorgeous scenery you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. With sandy beaches and sunny skies, it’s easy to see why dog lovers would flock to this city -- especially when you take into consideration all the activities you and Fido can get swept up in. Whether you’re a Fernandina Beach native, or if you’re just paying a short visit, there’s plenty of ways to spend time with your precious pooch in this quaint locale!
From any of the 34 dog-friendly restaurants to the tours and parks in town, you and your pup pal are sure to have a blast. Be sure to stop in at Fernandina Beach Main Beach Park, a dog-friendly locale where your furry friend will be welcome to roam off their leash as long as they’re within the bounds of the park. If you want to explore the beaches, they’ll need to be leashed, but that shouldn’t stop you from having a doggone good time! Just bring some swimming clothes for yourself and plenty of fresh drinking water for your canine companion. Also, bring doggy waste bags in case you need to clean up any messy mishaps.
