Home to TPC Sawgrass and The Players Championship, Ponte Vedra Beach is "better than most" (pardon the golf reference). The Spa @ the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club is worth the 45 min. trip up the coast!

Golf

If you're a golf fan or traveling with one, the World Golf Hall of Fame is a must visit. The self guided tour is reasonable and worth it. World Golf Village is also home to two championship caliber golf courses, King & Bear and Slammer & Squire. Both are excellent though my personal preference is King & Bear.

The Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass is a bucket-list course for every golfer. I recommend booking tee-times well in advance. Do not ignore Dye's Valley, the Korn Ferry Tour Championship was played here for years and is a tremendous value when compared to The Stadium course.

Home to the LPGA Tour, LPGA International has two courses that are worth the trip south to Daytona Beach. It is a similar distance as TPC Sawgrass.

Flagler College is now home to what was once the most luxurious hotel in the south. Henry Flagler built the hotel and the architecture is amazing! It's also one of the most haunted buildings in the area if you believe in that sort of thing.

The "Old Fort" may be St. Augustine's most recognized landmarks. There is usually a few showings of how soldiers would load and fire a cannon inside the fort, but if you don't want to pay to enter, it's still worth a trip for the nice walk down the intracoastal and sights around the fort!

We're at the beach, seafood requires a dedicated section!
Mango Mangos is a local favorite. Island casual is the name of the game here! It's just simple, good seafood.

Located on the beach at the end of A Street, Beachcomber is another local favorite. It's typically more crowded than Mango Mango's but you can't beat the location! Most of the seating is outside but there are some indoor seating.

Safe Harbor is part of a local group of seafood restaurants that sources most of it's fish fresh from Mayport in Jacksonville. Mayport if "famous" for it's shrimp. If shrimp what you're looking for, there is no better option.
