“Where Florida Begins” is how some describe Jacksonville. Situated on the northeastern coast of the state near the Georgian border, this city has snowy-white beaches, Southern warmth, and attractions galore. With a Jacksonville car rental, you’ll be able to discover downtown and beyond. Go the extra mile with an exotic car and turn heads while driving down the avenues.
Your flight will land at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), 13 miles north of downtown. Pick up a rental car in Jacksonville and make the 40-mile drive south to St. Augustine for good times in the “Old City.” Stroll around the 18th-century defenses of Fort Matanzas, where the Spanish protected Matanzas Inlet from approaching attackers. After successfully defending the city, head to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park and watch the trainers hand-feed the closest things we have to dinosaurs. End your day by checking out St. Augustine’s nightlife with its excellent selection of bars and after-hour’s joints.
If you want a small-town feel closer to Jacksonville, then go 35 miles north from city center to the sleepy seaside community of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island – the only city in the country to fly the flags of eight different nations throughout history. Grab a paddle and hop in a kayak for a tour that takes you up the St. Mary’s River, through the Okefenokee Swamp, and back down the Suwannee River. End your day eating a delicious dinner you cooked yourself at the Amelia Island Culinary Academy.
