Thanks, guys! Fernandina Beach looks really nice, however, we would like a single family home and it doesn't appear as if that's in our price range.

Yep, not on the beach unless you up it to over 350K most likely. You might also look at Butler Beach and the south end of St Augustine Beach. It's very quiet and a nice area with single family homes within two to three short blocks from the beach in the 250K-300K bracket. You're not going to find anything (or anything suitable) on the beach or across from it in NE Florida within that price bracket.

There are plenty of single family homes a block from the beach in Indian Harbour Beach, Indianatlactic, Satellite Beach in Brevard county, that are below the $250,000 price bracket(a lot of nice homes that are cheaper than that). They are all nice areas too. Lots of retirees in the area as well.

When i lived there back in the early 70s i never noticed much in the way of fumes and the noise wasnt that much of an issue as the bikers would pass through the town usually on Sunday afternoon. however on bikeweek they would pass through the town almost non stop,. that said the miles of empty beach and great fishing pier more than made up for the occasional biker group on their way through town. Best option is to pack a picnic lunch and find a place to sit for a few hours and observe. About a mile or so north of the pier they have roadside picnic tables,if they are still there and you can find an empty one its the perfect place to watch the comings and goings of life in Flagler beach. they look like this.=

The island part of Vero Beach would push all the buttons.

I agree also. Sounds like just what the OP is looking for.

Also much, much warmer than Fernandina in the winter if that matters.

Vero Beach is too south, although it does look lovely there. We need to be North. But thank you!

I am glad that Fernandina Beach is on the radar. My husband and I live in south Florida and are looking for a change and lower cost of living. We love the beaches on the west coast of Florida and Destin Beach in the panhandle. However, we are going to be giving Fernandina a look-see.
