Northeast Florida, known as the First Coast for its historical significance, may be the state’s best-kept secret as vacationers rush to better-known destinations farther south. But devoting some time here unearths a unique combination of history, leisure and recreational activities second to none.
From Jacksonville, one of the largest consolidated cities with nearly 850 square miles, to St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest continually settled city, the northeast region is a fascinating blend of natural wonders and laid-back lifestyles.
