Tickets are now on sale for the 2017 Holiday Cookie Tour of Inns on Saturday, December 9th – benefiting the Friends of the Library. Ticket prices go up the closer that we get to the Tour, so the time to buy is now. Tickets purchased before November 1st are $20, gradually rising to $30 in December. Have you considered a Sweet Deal Package? The bargain price of $150 will get you two tickets to this year’s Tour, a copy of Sunshine Mornings at the Inns of Amelia Island, the Association’s cookbook, and a gift certificate for a future midweek stay at your choice of inn. There are only three Sweet Deal packages available for each inn – and some are close to selling out – so get yours now. If the inn doesn’t show up in the list, there are no Sweet Deals left for that inn, but you may select a different inn.
With the inns all decorated in their holiday finery – and sending wafts of freshly baked cookies into the air – the Tour is always the place to find your holiday spirit. Tour six Historic District inns on foot, or catch a ride on the carriages and trolleys that will be rolling by – rides between inns are included with your Tour ticket. Sample a different cookie at each inn, and take the recipe with you. Docents will be available at each inn to regale you with the history of each of these grand dames, as well.
Make a long weekend of it to enjoy the four-day Dickens on Centre, an event that has quickly become an island favorite. It’s a Christmas festival celebrating days gone by, sure to bring out the child in everyone. It all begins with a lighted Christmas parade on Thursday, the 7th, and goes through Sunday afternoon, so you’ll have time to see it all. Book your favorite B&B now.
