Whether it's the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, the Kingsley Plantation or Little Talbot Island State Park and the Fort Caroline National Memorial, Jacksonville is where time flies and it's really worth spending a few more days in order to visit the 30 or so attractions and almost 20 museums in the most populous and industrialized city of Florida. But also the sights of the surroundings deserve to be seen. Why don't you take your rental car on a trip to Lake City with its well-known flea market hall far beyond the city limits or drive in just over an hour in the direction of Brunswick and visit the Georiga Sea Turtle Center. Of course, it is also possible to take a rental car on the well-maintained roads to the south of Florida or along the border towards Alabama.
Did you bring a little time to explore the varied Florida with your rental car? Then don't hesitate and get behind the steering wheel of your rental car to set off for the most beautiful sights along the Atlantic coast. In St. Augustine, make a detour to the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, a fortress once built by the Spaniards, visit the racetrack in Daytona, take a look at the Gatorland in Orlando with your children or drive via Miami to Key West and never forget to take a trip to the Everglades. If you don't want to travel to the extreme south of Florida, it's also worthwhile to take a tour of Tampa and a detour to the Dalí Museum in Saint Petersburg, from where you can continue your journey via Clearwater along the gulf from Mexico to New Orleans.
Our tip: Did you know that you don't have to return your rental car at the same location if you pay a so-called one-way rent, which pays off especially in the case of a rental car contract that includes unlimited mileage.
