Southern destinations — Charleston and Savannah in particular — are having a major moment. For New Yorkers seeking a getaway, Amelia Island is the next (and for now, lesser-known) Southern vacation spot to have on your radar. Fall is one of the best times to go: Locals call it the “secret season” thanks to the combo of warm weather and fewer visitors. And, if you plan your trip around November 10-12, you’ll catch the Amelia Island Wellness Festival. At this R&R-packed weekend, you’ll be able to attend workshops on yoga (from headliners like MC Yogi), nutrition, and mindfulness sessions.
If you’re not already convinced, know that Amelia Island is easy to get to – it’s only 30 minutes away from Jacksonville International Airport (which is a two-and-a-half-hour direct flight from New York). Check out our video for everything you need to know about this hidden gem.
