IN­SIDER’S TIPS

2017 Travel Guide to Florida - - NORTHEAST FLORIDA -

Jack­sonville is the largest city by land­mass in the con­ti­nen­tal United States. If you are vis­it­ing for a few days, con­sider rent­ing a car to ex­pe­ri­ence all of its lo­cal, his­toric neigh­bor­hoods, beaches and na­tional parks.

Got a han­ker­ing for more than just seafood? Then Clark’s Fish Camp in Jack­sonville is the place to visit. Try spe­cial items like al­li­ga­tor pop­pers, shark bites, smoked eel, fried llama, an­te­lope and os­trich. Clark’s dis­plays a large col­lec­tion of taxi­dermy around the restau­rant and has a live al­li­ga­tor ex­hibit with tur­tles and a five-foot ’gator.

One of the lesser-known but spec­tac­u­lar at­trac­tions in St. Au­gus­tine is the tour of Fla­gler Col­lege. Built by Henry M. Fla­gler in 1888, the col­lege is listed as a Na­tional His­toric Land­mark. Stu­dents lead tours twice a day for just US$10 a per­son.
