If booking a furnished resort rental in the beautiful beaches of Northeast Florida is the first step to a perfect getaway, then the next step has to be planning an itinerary full of fun things to do. Luckily, you’ll never want for things to do whether you find yourself in Jacksonville Beach, Atlantic Beach, or Ponte Vedra Beach.
Sports nuts will find lots to love in Jacksonville, from one of the NFL’s most promising young teams to a nationally renowned PGA Tour event. Even if sports don’t hold a special place in your heart, there’s still many exciting activities and locations to catch your eye.
The Jacksonville Jaguars
If you’re in search of furnished rentals during August, you’ll be in town just in time to catch a Jacksonville Jaguars preseason game. Preseason games are more laid-back and enjoyable to watch, as fans wonder which players will make the final cut for the squad. Plan a vacation for September beyond and you can even grab tickets to a regular season game. Falling just one game shy of Super Bowl in 2018, the Jaguars are one of the most exciting teams to watch.
The PGA Tour
As of January 2018, the PGA Tour announced plans for an expanded global home on the shores of Ponte Vedra Beach. Not only does this give you exclusive access to tour the grounds if you’re in the area, but there are many tournaments, events, and other goings-on happening right in town. The Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass is one of the most exclusive golf resorts in the country, and if you plan your vacation just right, you can catch The Players Championship which is played exclusively at Sawgrass.
More than Sports
From nightlife to arts and culture, there are many things to do and see in the area surrounding Jacksonville’s beaches. Spend a day in any one of the beachfront parks in the area, or take in a day of wake-boarding or surfing, both of which are popular in Ponte Vedra. If you need a break from the sandy beaches, you won’t have to travel far to reach the heart of Jacksonville where you’ll find a wealth of unique restaurants and attractions.
