The northern part of Florida holds nice activities and beautiful places to see in store for you to spend a relaxed weekend. A 45-minute drive from Jacksonville International Airport should get you to whichever of those lovely beaches and islands you’ve picked. A weekend getaway to Amelia Island and adjacent Fernandina Beach will definitely keep you entertained – it's one of the only places in Florida that allow horseback riding on the beach! You can also go kayaking at Fort Clinch State Park then hit the beach outside of the fort to find shark teeth. Insider tip: They’re black! As for history, be sure to check out the Fernandina Beach Historic District – it's home to Florida's oldest bar and hotel. Nearby Atlantic Beach prides itself on miles of laid-back beaches and quaint parks, keeping that Old Florida charm alive. Find your peace of mind at Dutton Island Preserve, the city’s largest park. Calm waters, majestic trees, and numerous trails are flaunting the area’s beauty in the best way possible.
