2 DAY ITINERARY
1Start your day slow and easy on the beach. If you booked a beachfront hotel, this should involve no more than walking outside. If you’re elsewhere, load up the car with some chairs, snacks and sunscreens and drive down a beach access.
1Sleep in, then pack a lunch and drive up to Marineland mid-morning. Swim with the dolphins.
2Afterward, drive the few miles to Fort Matanzas to see how the Spanish soldiers who manned the outpost lived, and ask yourself, “How bad did these guys have to screw up at St. Augustine to get sent down here?”
3From the Fort, drive onto the beach on the north side of Matanzas Inlet and enjoy your lunch, then just lay out until the sun sucks every bit of tension from your body.
