Rainy Day Activities on Amelia Island


With 300+ days of sunshine annually, on Amelia Island, we know how to enjoy fun in the sun (Check out our favorite outdoor toys). But on those few summer afternoons it does rain, or once we’ve had a little too much sun, how do we keep our kids busy? There isn’t a lot to do on Amelia Island, and we think that’s a good thing. Since we don’t have many rainy days, we do have just enough fun things to keep you busy in the rare chance the weather is bad. 

First, check our calendar! We are thrilled to offer afternoon drop off programs for when the weather is bad, or you've just had too much sun. From building robots to fun science activities, we've got something fun for the kiddos or the kids at heart. 

Just two blocks from Villa Villekulla Toys, is the Amelia Island Museum of History. This small museum packs big fun, including an interactive area just for the kids. Check their website for family activities and docent-led tours. 

Enjoy the outdoors while indoors at The Nature Center at the Omni Amelia Island. Feed a turtle and learn about local Flora and Fauna.

For a little nostalgic fun for the whole family, the Fernandina Beach Pinball Museum will keep the kids and adults busy. Learn about the history and mechanism of pinball machines, and play as many games as you want on their fun collection of retro and vintage machines.

Learn about Amelia Island’s deeply rooted African American History at the American Beach Museum

Relax while getting an entertaining and educational tour of the island on Amelia Island Trolleys.

If you get lucky, the rain will fall during a run of one of the wonderful plays at either of our theaters. Visit Amelia Musical Playhouse or Amelia Community Theater for information on performances and tickets.

Everyone can entertain their inner artists at Paisley Grace Makery or Amelia Makery, both located in the Mainstreet District. For families with older children, Amelia Island Escape Rooms is a fun bonding experience. 

Obviously, you’ll never be bored on a rainy day if you stop by Villa Villekulla Toys and let us help you pick out some games and puzzles
