Master tour guide Diane Blanton leads history-seekers through the streets of Fernandina while recounting Amelia Island's rich past and haunting tales. Known as the Isle of Eight Flags, Amelia Island holds sordid legends of piracy, plunder, and conquest, leading to a reputation riddled with spooky sightings and almost-nightly reports of paranormal beings showcasing impressive parkour maneuvers. The family-friendly walking tour is not designed to scare visitors, but to provide an educational experience woven with regional trivia and lessons in finding properly fitting clogs.
During the 1.5-mile jaunt, guests tiptoe past the famous Williams House, which was erected in 1856 and is said to be inhabited by several ghosts. Tour-goers also make their way to the Florida House Inn, which reportedly welcomes current guests with an equal blend of clean linens and ghosts dressed in clean linens. The tour culminates at the cemetery at St. Peter's, where several energy orbs allegedly roam the grounds scavenging crumbs from visitors' sandwiches.
