I'll be driving from Jacksonville to Orlando tomorrow. Any interesting places to stop on the way?

St. Augustine is the most interesting. Try to stop if time permits.

Blue Spring State Park, 2100 W. French Avenue, Orange City, FL 32763. (386) 775-3663

It's about half way to Orlando on Interstate 4 - just a little bit north of that Interstate.

Manatees cluster there in the winter for the warm waters of the spring. There were 104 manatees at last count on February 18. You don't have any of these in Canada!

Nice park, with good viewing boardwalks.
