[edit] Cities in this Graticule

  • Jacksonville, FL
    • Jacksonville Landing is a nice place to start to explore downtown Jacksonville. It starts you on the riverside with enough ferries to go where you want should you need to cross the river.
    • The most developed areas are encompassed by I-295, which is a beltway. Jacksonville is further split by the St. John's River - the northern section within 295 is more urban, the rest of Jacksonville is more suburban to urban.
    • I-10 terminates in Jacksonville, meaning you could drive from Santa Monica, CA to Jacksonville on the same highway. It creates an intersection with I-95. If you're passing through I-95 northbound, it can be a bit disorienting with the right mindset at the intersection. While it feels like you're about to merge with I-10, it's really an exit: stay left to stay on 95, stay right to exit onto 10. If you aren't thinking in terms of north/west, it's turning right to go left and left to go right.
  • Jacksonville Beach, FL
    • Definitely the rich part of town the further south you get, down to Ponte Vedra with all the tournament-caliber golf clubs like TPC Sawgrass. There's a great big undeveloped area sitting between Jacksonville and working southeast towards Ponte Vedra.
  • Orange Park, FL
    • Most GPS directions taking you southwest of Jacksonville will go through Orange Park and take you through exit 12 off 295 through Blanding Boulevard. Be aware that this place is generally filled with traffic and add time to your expedition accordingly. Alternatively, you can take I-95 south, get off at CR-210, then make your way towards FL-16 to bypass it all.
  • Fruit Cove, FL
  • Kingsland, GA
  • St. Marys, GA
  • Cumberland Island, GA
