Jacksonville, a.k.a. the "First Coast" of Florida, lies 25 miles south of the Georgia state line.

You can boat, swim, fish, ski, surf, and otherwise explore the 80,000 acres of the country's largest urban park system and 22 miles of waterways and white sand beaches. It would take you a month just to play all the award-winning golf courses!
