Explore the Waterways
From the glistening St. Johns River to the Intracoastal Waterway to the Atlantic Ocean, Jacksonville is a city bound by aquatic resources. Drive to the St. Johns River, and get aboard the St. Johns River Ferry - it's one of the only remaining car ferries in Florida. You will be on your way to a visit of Fort George Island. If you'd rather park and explore nature a little closer to the action, you can venture on an eco-kayak tour, cast a line inshore or offshore, or just enjoy the beauty of the beach - while relaxing in a lounge chair.
Take a Swing
Jacksonville is in Florida after all, so of course there are plenty of opportunities for the state’s favorite pastime - golf! The championship 18-hole course, Windsor Parke Golf Club, and the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in nearby Ponte Vedra Beach both offer travelers a unique experience on the green. Go right over to the Stadium Course, where you can test your golfing limits.
