So where is a good spot that is within driving distance from Jacksonville that would be good for a weekend getaway... basically looking someplace to head for R&R.

Thanks!

Amelia Island is awesome. That's real close but you'll feel far far away.

St Simons Island ( less than 2 hours away) and Savannah ( less than 2 1/2 hours away) are our favorite getaways! We also love Amelia Island !

Well, there's always Disney for those of us who enjoy it (about 2 hours away).

Tampa Bay area (3-3.5 hours away). Lots to do down there.

Svannah (90 mins I think?). Supposed to be a lot of fun--haven't had a chance to do it yet.

There are many places within driving distance for a nice weekend. Too many to list actually.
