Condé Nast Travel Magazine came out with the 2011 Reader’s Choice Awards last week and Amelia Island did it again. Our scores are quite impressive. For example we are America’s number 8 favorite island destination, immediately followed by Cumberland and Hilton Head to our North on number 9 and 10. But guess what, if we remove the 5 Hawaiian Islands from the line up, we’re number 3 right behind Kiawah and Nantucket in the continental USA.
Besides we’re the ONLY Florida island listing sifted from more than 8 million votes cast in the annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey.
Other very notable mentions are Elizabeth Pointe Lodge claiming a number 6 spot on the Small Resorts list and a number 2 spot for the Fairbanks House on the Small Hotel List.
Interesting is also that in a very competitive field of the top 10 Cities in the US, the spread between the 10 best is only 6.7 points, and Savannah, just 90 minutes to our north ranks number 7, directly behind New York, establishing itself as a good day trip destination for stay over guests.
With Charleston NC being the undisputed number 1 city in the USA, our little corner of the Southeast scores high in customer satisfaction.
