One of the easiest to locate activity in Jacksonville is it's beaches and state parks.

Each of these beaches have their own personality and flair, so don't just visit one. The Jacksonville Beach Pier (http://www.jacksonvillebeachpier.com/) lets you get out over the waves and enjoy the view or cast a few lines in search of some saltwater fish. If you plan on having a large party check out the Saint Johns County Ocean Pavilion (http://www.sjcfl.us/Recreation/media/forms/OceanPierPavilionFactSheet.pdf).
