A complete guide for everything you need to experience a great Long Weekend in what used to be called “the biggest town in South Georgia.” Well, not anymore. There’s plenty going on in Avondale, Riverside and every other part of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach.“I was forced to go to Jacksonville for a whole 10 days on business. I dreaded it. Jacksonville? My company put me up in a sterile downtown hotel. Got this book figuring I’d find a couple of things to do. First thing I did was move out of the downtown hotel and into a charming B&B (cheaper than the hotel, so my company was happy). It was so nice I called my wife and she flew in to join me for a 3-day weekend.”--- Randy E., BrownsvilleYoull save a lot of time using this concise guide.=Lodgings (throughout the area) variously priced=Fine & budget restaurants, more than enough listings to give you a sense of the variety to be found.=Principal attractions -- dont waste your precious time on the lesser ones.
