Summer break is starting to wind down for kids all across the country. With school starting back up, it isn’t the easiest accomplishment to squeeze in one last mini trip before the school buses start running again. Fortunately for those of us living on the First Coast, there are still plenty of options available to squeeze out every drop of enjoyment out of summer in a single weekend.
The easiest and most convenient trip is across the intracoastal waterway to the beach. There are plenty of places to build your own sand castles without fear of a nearby kingdom coming in and encroaching on your sovereign lands. Pick a spot along the water from Atlantic Beach down to St. Augustine and enjoy the sun and the sand the way that people from all over the country wish they could.
If you are all beached out, take a trip to the Jacksonville Zoo and let your little ones mingle with a wide variety of birds, butterflies and beasts from all over the globe, all in one convenient and safe place to see them up close. It doesn’t matter if your little ones are interested in penguins or panthers, giraffes or geckos the Jacksonville Zoo has more than enough creatures to keep you and your kids busy for hours.
Of course, if you are living in one of Lennar’s communities in Northeast Florida you can find plenty to do right in your own backyard. The amenities in our communities range from putt-putt golf to swimming pools to party pavilions and more! There are trails for bike rides or hiking excursions, jungle gyms for kids with high energy and a slew of other things you can do to enjoy the last little bit of summer vacation time without even having to leave your own neighborhood. It’s just one more benefit of the Everything’s Included lifestyle that you get with a Lennar home.
