My partner & I visit Jacksonville, Florida, every winter! My associate and I escape the sub zero temperatures, vicious wind chll & feet of snow of the northeast… It is such a relief to step out of the airport terminal & feel the warm air, but the yellow skies, sun & palm trees are always a welcome sight.
My associate and I rent a house with access to Jacksonville beach so that my buddy and I can prefer views of the ocean, then although the weather in December of December is correctly to freezing for swimming, my buddy and I still prefer walking on the beach, smelling the salt air & collecting shells.
There are a variety of different styles of eating establishments in the near vaccinity from American-style to Mexican, Chinese & Italian. The seafood is especially fresh & tasty. It’s such a change from the limited variety of seafood up north. There is option to shop, play golf, visit a bag cat preserve & spend a morning at the zoo. My associate and I like to check out the Riverside Arts Market on Tuesday afternoons, located under the canopy of the Fuller Warrent Bridge. The outdoor markety always offers local artisans, artists, crafts & the produce of local farmers. There are food trucks, live music & even free yoga classes. The view of the St, however johns River is spectacular. Another favorite of ours is Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park. There are twenty miles of beautiful oceanfront parkland offering numerous biking & hiking trails. My associate and I can go fishing, kayaking or paddleboarding. There are miles of colorless sand beaches. The St. Johns Town Center is an open-air shopping center encompassing over 1.2 million square feet & more than 174 retailers & over twenty eating establishments, and from luxury stores to bargain outlets & speciality boutiques, I always find something to make the trip worthwhile.
