I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. As a kid I thought it was a pretty boring place. After living for about three decades now in New York state and after having visiting my Jacksonville in-laws many times, I started searching for interesting sites around the Jacksonville area that I probably missed as a kid. I found a lot of interesting places and appreciate the area much more than I did as a young man.  So here's to other kids growing up in Jacksonville and thinking that pastures might be greener in other places.  There's more around you than you think.

This site needs a lot of work.  I will gradually improve this site. Nevertheless, the site is still useful as it helps you put the historical places in context.
