Fun

Fun in or out of the sun.

Northeast Florida has all of the natural beauty, outdoor activities and cultural attractions for which the state is famous, but without the crowds. With Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra just minutes to the north and easy access to Central Florida, World Golf Village is the perfect starting point for day trips. Closer to home, St. Augustine offers nearly endless choices for recreation, while the Village itself puts shopping, dining and entertainment right at your door.

Golf takes center stage in the region, with two world-class championship golf courses here at World Golf Village. In Ponte Vedra, home to the PGA TOUR headquarters and TPC at Sawgrass, THE PLAYERS championship is held each spring. Along the 75 miles of Northeast Florida coast are more than 500 holes of golf from Amelia Island to Flagler County.

At the World Golf Hall of Fame, browse exhibits dedicated to the game and the legends who made it the exciting competition it is today. The 300-seat IMAX Theater offers the ultimate movie experience, with crystal-clear images on a six-story high, 80-foot wide screen.

In St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city, explore the pedestrian-friendly historic district's shops, cafes and landmarks, including the 17th-century Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. Shopping choices include everything from small, independent boutiques to large outlet malls with major brand name stores. End your shopping day with fine dining or more casual fare at great restaurants and bistros throughout St. Johns County.

Cultural events and attractions include a number of art festivals in and around St. Augustine, also a great spot for live music every night of the week. Museums range from the Lightner Museum, with its 19th-century relics of America's Gilded Age, to the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum, where visitors can climb the historic lighthouse's 219 steps for a panoramic view of the city's beautiful coast. Enjoy symphony performances in Jacksonville, where cultural stops also include the Museum of Contemporary Art downtown, The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens along the St. Johns River in Riverside, and the Museum of Science& History, a can't miss destination for kids of all ages.
