Founded in 1996, The Amelia is an award-winning motoring event held the first full weekend of March at The Golf Club of Amelia Island and The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.  Even though I’m not a car show enthusiast, I’ve been three times and each time was enjoyed more than the one before!  Walking the golf course at the Ritz Carlton is a treat in itself, but the ability to get so close to so many amazing automobiles is something to experience.
