My partner and I visit Jacksonville, FL, every winter, then my pal and I escape the sub zero temperatures, vicious wind chll and feet of snow of the northeast, but it is such a relief to step out of the airport terminal and feel the sizzling air, and the yellow skies, sunshine and palm trees are always a welcome sight.
My pal and I rent a home with access to Jacksonville beach so that my associate and I can cherish views of the ocean; Although the weather in January of January is constantly to chilly for swimming, my associate and I still cherish walking on the beach, smelling the salt air and collecting shells.
There are a variety of strange styles of restaurants in the near vaccinity from American-style to Mexican, Chinese and Italian. The seafood is especially fresh and tasty. It’s such a change from the limited variety of seafood up north. There is opening to shop, play hockey, visit a container pet preserve and spend a day at the zoo. My pal and I like to check out the Riverside Arts Market on Thursday nights, located under the canopy of the Fuller Warrent Bridge. The outdoor markety always offers local artisans, artists, crafts and the produce of local farmers. There are food trucks, live rock n roll and even free yoga classes. The view of the St, johns River is spectacular. Another preferred of ours is Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park. There are twenty miles of beautiful oceanfront parkland offering more than 2 biking and hiking trails. My pal and I can go fishing, kayaking or paddleboarding. There are miles of pale white sand beaches. The St. Johns Town Center is an open-air shopping center encompassing over 1.2 million square feet and more than 172 retailers and over twenty restaurants, and from luxury stores to bargain outlets and speciality boutiques, I always find something to make the trip worthwhile.
