The sprawling city of Jacksonville is not only Florida's most populous city, but also the largest city by land area in the continental United States.
Venture out of the city with trips to St. Augustine Beach (in Saint Augustine Beach), Daytona Beach (Mary Bethune Home, Southeast Museum of Photography, & more) and St. Augustine (Old Florida Museum, Fort Mose Historic State Park, & more). The adventure continues: immerse yourself in nature at Fort Clinch State Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Driftwood Beach, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and get to know the resident critters at Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens.

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New Orleans: Vacherie (Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site & Oak Alley Plantation), Nottoway Plantation (in White Castle) and Abita Springs Trailhead Museum (in Abita Springs). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, wander the streets of Frenchmen Street, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, and go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour.

Discover how to plan a New Orleans trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
