The Destination
From its charming downtown riverside promenades and parks to its quaint residential neighborhoods, Jacksonville offers a taste of true Florida flavor in nearly every direction. Towering oak trees tangled with moss, cheerful azaleas, and the residents' friendly Southern drawl provide the perfect backdrop for exploring all the city has to offer. And it's not just the people that are warm—plentiful Florida sunshine and ideal temperatures make the city a hot vacation destination any time of year.

The Digs
During the early 20th century, Jacksonville's one-percenters built mansions along the picturesque Riverside Avenue, which others nicknamed "The Row." As one of the last remaining homes, The Riverdale Inn, has a historic air—the original heart-of-pine floors and crown moldings are intact—with modern amenities, such as air-conditioning and Wi-Fi. "... thank goodness for preservation," says Frommer's. "Ten period guest rooms are available with antique rugs and furniture, some featuring canopy and four-poster beds and fireplaces."

If you're the type that takes their tea in the afternoon with scones and tiny sandwiches, then you'll want to make reservations for the inn's tea service. In the morning, a full breakfast—which may include omelets, blueberry pancakes, bacon, and fruit—is on the house.

  • "Despite its age—more than a hundred years old—the mansion feels pristine and squeaky-clean inside and out. Guest rooms, some with fireplaces, are individually decorated to evoke the turn of the last century."
