Home to the oldest plantation house in Florida

Kingsley Plantation

Located in the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, Kingsley Plantation was built in 1798 at the orthern end of Fort George Island. It takes its name from Zephaniah Kingsley, who moved here in 1814. He amassed 32,000 acres of land stretching from lake George near the Ocala National Forest north to the St Mary's River.

Described at the time as 'a very nice commodious house', Kingsley's relatively simple home has been restored and now contains a visitor centre. The building is topped by a rooftop parapet called a 'widow's walk' once used to survey the surrounding fields.


A reconstruction of the original 16th century defences

Fort Caroline National Memorial

The actual site of Fort caroline was washed away when St John's River was dredged in the 1880s. At Fort Caroline National Memorial, the reconstruction clearly illustrates the style of the first Europen forts in the New World. Information panels around the site explain the fort's violent history, which began shortly after French settlers arrived in June 1564.


The capital of the First Coast of Florida


Named after General Jackson, the town boomed as a port and rail terminus in the late 1800s. Today, the more sedentary but just as lucrative financial businesses fuel the impressive downtown commercial district which you can view from the Skyway or ASE.

This, Florida's largest city in area, spans the St John's River, which flows through it anf provides a focus for visitors. Most people head for the pedestrian areas that flank the river banks and are connected by water taxi services, although other sights are dotted around the city.

the Jacksonville Landing shopping and dining complex is located on the north bank of the St Johns, while on the south, the pleasant 1.2 mile long Riverwalk connects the Jacksonville Historic Centre and the impressive Museum of Science and History.

Riverside, on the opposite bank, is home to the famous Cummer Museum of Art. This large residential district, which contains a wonderful array of Revival-style architecture popular up to the 1920s, is best explored by car.


A dozen beaches stretching 28 miles along the Atlantic shore

Jacksonville Beaches

In the south, Ponte Vedra Beach is known for its sports facilities, particularly golf. Jacksonville Beach itself, is the busiest and brashest spot and is home to Adventure Landing, a year round entertainment complex and summer season water park. Heading north, Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach are both quieter and popular with families.

By fat the nicest spot is the Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, with its 1.5 miles of fine white sand beach, woodland trails, freshwater lake fishing, swimming, picnic and camping areas. The park lies just south of the quaint town of Mayport, one of the oldest fishing villages in the US, still with its own shrimping fleet. The St Johns ferry links the town to the north bank of the broad St Johns river.
