Florida's Northeast Region
Northeast Florida, known as "Florida's First Coast," combines America's oldest European settlement with one of the nation's leading modern seaports, with a collection of small up-and-coming towns adding to the local color and natural beauty. Encompassing Atlantic beaches as far south as Flagler County and inland rural communities west to Palatka, the region offers travelers timeless adventures through mysterious 17th-century forts, vast prairie lands and wide beaches lined with sand dunes.
Off the state's northeastern-most corner, Amelia Island provides a refreshing change of pace. On this small island, families will find blocks of old mansions, miles of beaches and lots of seafood. Fernandina Beach, the island's only town, showcases more than 50 blocks of restored Victorian neighborhoods, including a collection of grand, sherbet-hued mansions, called the "Silk Stocking District."
One of the nation's fastest growing and most modern cities, Jacksonville is situated along the banks of the state's longest river, the St. Johns River.
To the south lies the oldest, continuously occupied European settlement in the continental United States -- St. Augustine. Founded in 1565, 42 years before the English colonized Jamestown, St. Augustine has diligently preserved much of its rich heritage along a 144-block downtown historic district that offers a history lesson with proven kid appeal. Regardless of their age, visitors are bound to feel young again as they stroll narrow brick streets to discover the Oldest House, Oldest Jail, Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse and Oldest Store Museum.
Southwest of St. Augustine, along the banks of the St. Johns River, Putnam County offers quiet, unassuming historic sites which tell the story of Putnam County, including the impact of the Civil War, the advent of steamboat travel along the St. Johns River and the gilded age of the Flagler Railroad.
