Totally off the beaten path, but just a short drive from JAX beaches, this preserve on Fort George Island brings together some of northern coastal Florida's iconic marshes and swamps with the historical ruins of the Kingsley Plantation, a National Park Service site. Part of the fun of detouring here is the partly paved, partly potholed road around the island, ...

We didn't take any guided tours just walked the grounds and read the info boards. It was well worth the short stop. This is a gripping glimpse into the majesty and horror of a slave enabled lifestyle.Popular withOutdoor

This is our 3rd Segway tour and the first on the "off road" model. I prefer the nimbler street model but traveling in sand over roots and generally rough terrain was way cool.

The northern tip of Amelia Island is graced with a fantastic park. The Fort itself although wonderful is just a small part of the experience.
