A Travel Bleg

Anyone out there amongst the readership who lives in or around the Jacksonville, FL area?

It appears that I will be coming into that fair city sometime in the next 7 to 10 days. The Queen and I are discussing making it into a little long weekend getaway. Perhaps there is a willing native who would be kind enough to give us the nickel tour?
