We all appreciate a little weekend getaway every now and then. And we deserve them! It’s nice to be able to step away from the constant go, go, go life we live on a daily basis and enjoy a little bit of down time. Living in Florida we know two things, it’s pretty much always sunny (except for those afternoon summer showers) and we have beaches, lots of beaches. I’ve put together a list of fun weekend getaways from all over the state that hopefully will come in handy next time you’re planning a little time away.
What to do: Go golfing, Henderson Beach State Park, Silver Sands Premium Outlets, paddle boarding, sunset cruise, HarborWalk Village and visit Crab Island
What to do: Visit Castillo de San Marcos, see the Fountain of Youth, St. Augustine Distillery Company, Flagler College St. George Street, The Oldest House Museum and GhoSt Augustine
What to do: Egans Creek Greenway, Kayak Amelia, head to the beach, Fort Clinch State Park and go horseback riding on the beach
What to do: See the Southern Most Point and Mile Marker 0, take a Sunset Cruise, Mallory Square, walk along Duval Street and slip into the countless restaurants, bars and shops, Ernest Hemingway Home, Dry Tortugas National Park and book an all-day excursion with Sebago Key West (the best!)
What to do: Disney Springs, have a spa day, Lake Eola Swan Boat Rides, Harry P. Leu Gardens, see a Cirque de Soleil show, shopping at the outlet malls, I-Drive 360, East End Market, go golfing **these are ideas of things to do beyond going to the theme parks
