A complete guide for everything you need to experience a great Long Weekend in what used to be called the biggest town in South George. Well, t anymore. There's plenty going on in Avondale, Riverside and every other part of Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach. I was forced to go to Jacksonville for a whole 10 days on business. I dreaded it. Jacksonville? My company put me up in a sterile downtown hotel. Got this book figuring I'd find a couple of things to do. First thing I did was move out of the downtown hotel and into a charming B&B (cheaper than the hotel, so my company was happy). It was so nice I called my wife and she flew in to join me for a 3-day weekend. --- Randy E., Brownsville You'll save a lot of time using this concise guide. =Lodgings (throughout the area) variously priced =Fine & budget restaurants, more than eugh listings to give you a sense of the variety to be found. =Principal attractions -- don't waste your precious time on the lesser ones.
