Jacksonville - Ski, Sports and Surf

Jacksonville, in northeast Florida about an hour away from Georgia, is a dual city. There is Jacksonville proper and Jacksonville Beach, separated by the mighty St. John River. Here you can surf in the Atlantic or sail the expansive river where Spanish explorers searched for the Fountain of Youth. Dubbed the "City where Florida Begins", this is where IH10 and IH95 merge and where you can land great deals on Jacksonville FL hotels on the beach or near downtown overlooking the river.

Jacksonville is the largest city in the nation by acreages. At 848 square miles, it covers more area than L.A. or NYC. So, rent a car and explore this unique city of fresh and saltwater fun. To the north is the airport and quaint towns such as St. Mary's, Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. Here you can find beachside cafes, quaint craft shops and stores and even an Irish pub. There are often concerts and festivals on the beach year round. To the west is Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach, close to Jacksonville University. There are eclectic eateries and shops nearby and some of the cheap hotels Jacksonville offers. Travel south to Orange Park and NASJAX, the naval air station. Rent a boat at the marina and explore the coves of the St John, one of the best rivers for skiing and sailing fun. It looks more like a lake than a river. Shop along Blanding and Park, then go watch the greyhound races.

Sports fans - this is NFL Jaguar country. Join the pageantry of the Gator Bowl in January, or the Suns NBA team play though the spring. You will find great golfing in Jacksonville as well at TPC Sawgrass and World Golf Village. Winters are cooler here than in Miami, but there is still plenty of sun and fun to be experienced any time of year.
