The area was first explored by the Spanish in 1513 and the city was founded in 1565. I bet you didn't know that did you. The city and the area has a rich cultural history with everything from Ripleys, Ghost Tours, and a beautiful old Spanish Fort. If you've never been to St Augustine Florida which is 35 miles south of Jacksonville Florida you should plan a vacation there real soon. I just love it and go about twice a year. I lived there one time for a year.
