Jacksonville Staycation In Pictures #floridawish

We had a wonderful stay at the Marriott Courtyard Jacksonville Mayo Clinic/Beaches. You may have been wondering what exactly we did while on our Jacksonville staycation.

We spent Friday enjoying Adventure Landing. My niece Lucy rode her first roller coaster and everyone enjoyed the wave pool!

After Adventure Landing, we ate dinner at the famous Taco Lu’s. A lot of celebrities frequent this restaurant while visiting Jacksonville Beach- Ricky Fowler (PGA Golfer) tweeted about Taco Lu’s during the TPC this year! You can’t beat their bang bang shrimp taco..ITS YUMMY!Taco LuAfter dinner we said good bye to the other adults, I braved the hotel room alone with 4 children.  After stopping in the lobby for a light night snack from The Bistro, we made up the sleeper sofa, watched some tv, giggled a lot and snuggled in for a great nights sleep.

We ate lunch at Sliders Seafood Grille where I had the shrimp and grits that was absolutely to die for! I will definitely be going back for more.interior-2After lunch we headed over to St Pauls Gymnasium for Trever and Tyler’s basketball games.IMG_0117When the games came to an end, Troy and I left the our children with my brother Eric to watch for the night so that we could have a date night  and enjoy the hotel alone.  We at dinner at Nippers Beach Grille and walked a long the beach and pier with some friends. Sorry..no pictures here! I put my camera and phone away to enjoy the evening with my husband and good friends.

Sunday morning we used express check out at the hotel and headed to my nephew Zachary’s baptism.


What a pleasure it was to witness him become part of the body of Christ!  Our staycation was absolutely perfect!  The best part was that we were able to enjoy Jacksonville as “tourists” and participate in our local commitments. It was a wonderful weekend that I am sure we will repeat again next summer!
