Getting Started FAQs

I don’t know anyone who lives in your community. How can I make new friends?

There are always friendly faces at The Lakeside at Amelia Island! Our residents tend to become fast friends, and you can meet new friends easily. Try joining one of our community clubs, attending a social program, or simply saying hello to a few new people you see in the halls.
