I haven't spent any time in Jacksonville itself, but would highly recommend a trip up to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. The beaches up here are gorgeous and really very quiet, particularly around Little Talbot Island State Park and as you hit the southern end of Amelia Island. It's about an hour's drive from downtown Jacksonville. I have heard good things about the zoo at Jacksonville, plus the kayak tours that take you out into some of the nearby waterways and marshes. For culture vultures, there's a few museums like the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and Museum of Science & History (with small aquarium and animal exhibits, which younger travelers might enjoy). The city puts on a number of festivals throughout the year, including the Jacksonville Jazz Festival (Memorial Day weekend) and the annual Springing the Blues Festival. And of course, no self-respecting pirate lover should miss Fernandina Beach's Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Fest, with shrimp-boat races, mock pirate invasions, and lots of yummy seafood!

Go to St Augustine for history, architecture, excellent cuban food, water view restaurants. Very Spanish/european vibe with small cafes, courtyards, etc. Visit the "fountain of youth" because you should! And plenty of first rate outlet shopping out on highway 95 with all the "name" hotel chains right there.
