::The Trip::

[The Facts]

10 Year Anniversary approaching (in May)

Parents have agreed to watch the kiddos

Want to see friends in Jax, FL

Photo shoots scheduled for the weekend in Jax

[The Plan]

Hang out in Jacksonville for the weekend & do our own thing (me–photo shoots, hubs–skeet with old buddies)

Travel somewhere FUN for 3-4 days after that…

[The Pathetic Part]

We lived in Jacksonville a little over two years and never ventured south of Orlando.  I know, I know.  That’s pretty ridiculous.    We’d love to see more of the state though. 

[The Choices]

Jacksonville Beach, FL (stay in a beach house, no travel time…relaxing, fun, know the area)

Naples, FL  (shopping–need I say more?!)

Amelia Island, FL  (gorgeous, quaint, relaxing, The Ritz, lots of beach)

Miami, FL (culture!, friend there)

Florida Keys (wildlife, the drive of a lifetime!)

Jekyll Island, GA  (super tiny, historic, Jekyll Island Club Hotel is such an amazing place…)

So now that you’ve seen the choices,

where in FL/GA should we go???

Have any of you been to one of these places?  Heard good/bad things about somewhere that you want to pass on?  What looks like the most fun?  Any tips or advice?  We’re not super beachy people, although I am looking forward to having my toes in the sand for a looooong time.  🙂
