I hope you have a place to stay-Nov 1st Jax is host to the largest outdoor cocktail party-the Fl/Ga football game. Hotels within 60 mile radius are usually booked. Come and enjoy the beaches, riverfront, museums, and a great zoo. The fair is also here that weekend. Check out Fernandina, St. Augustine, and Marineland. Have fun!

There will be lots of football fun this weekend. The annual Georgia vs. Florida Football Classis is Nov. 1 at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. Football fans arrive early in the week to celebrate. If you are interested in learning more about these festivities visit www.flga.org.
There are plenty of other things to see and do in the Jacksonville area. There are more than 20 miles of coastline, from the activity-filled Jacksonville Beach (www.visitjacksonvillebeach.org) to the unspoiled beaches of Talbot Island State Parks (www.floridastateparks.org).
Jacksonville is proud to have the largest urban park system in the country. On Fort George island you can explore nature on segway, kayak or bike. Check out EcoMotion Segway Tours (www.ecomotiontours.com) and Kayak Amelia (kayakamelia.com) for more information on outdoor adventures.
The outdoors are a must-see, and are balanced by the metropolitan flare of the Downtown area (www.downtownjacksonville.org). Downtown, divided by the St. Johns River, is brimming with culture. The Southbank is inhabited by the Museum of Science & History (www.themosh.org), Jacksonville Maritime Museum and waterfront restaurants, including a local's favorite, River City Brewing Company. River City has a large patio with outdoor entertainment on weekends and a delicious brunch on Sunday morning (www.rivercitybrew.com).
The Northbank is home to The Jacksonville Landing (www.jacksonvillelanding.com). There's an assortment of restaurants and bars at this waterfront entertainment complex. In the courtyard there is often live entertainment. For free visitor information stop by the Visit Jacksonville Welcome Center on the first floor of The Landing.
Stop by Hemming Plaza and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Jacksonville (www.mocajacksonville.org). MOCA is the largest modern and contemporary art museum in the Southeast.
