Clark's Fish Camp, such a unique place. Taxidermy all over the wall and a live alligator in the tank at the front of the restaurant. The prime rib is good and gigantic.

Street Cafe, Cafe K-Cup

European Street Cafe

French Pantry, everything here is fantastic. It is only open M-F for lunch. There is usually a line but it moves fast and is well worth the wait.

Angie's Subs, fantastic subs out at the beach and a great beach atmosphere. My favorite is the Peruvian, but they are all really good.

One of the primary drivers of culture and art in Jacksonville. A little bit out there but the shows are top notch.

Florida Mining

Farm to plate restaurant with great food, great deserts, and great local drinks. Make a reservation, it is very busy and you might not get a table if you try to walk in without one.

29 South Eats

Great place for a day trip or stay overnight at one of the bed and breakfasts, tons of great shops, restaurants, and bars.

Downtown Fernandina

It's a bit of a drive from Jacksonville but well worth it. The crystal clear springs are beautiful and you can float down the spring-fed river on rented inner tubes. There are many springs int he area but this is one of the best. Get there early because it get's busy in the summer months.
