  • Visiting Florida from Texas

    My wife and I are in Jacksonville for her master's degree and she has never seen blue/green ocean water (where you can go neck deep and look down and still see your feet). Where is the nearest place we can do that? I remember as a little kid my parents brought me to Ft. Lauderdale and it was like that, but when my wife and I went to Jax Beach it was not like that. Just curious where the nearest place was?! I thank you all in advance!

    The pool at the hotel. Oh real ocean water? On the way back to Texas stop in the panhandle at one of the Gulf beaches.

      Take a day or two trip to Panama City Beach or Destin, White sand beaches and emerald green water. This weekend on Okaloosa Island, just West of Destin there is a FREE rock the Beach Concert, Lynard Skynard will be performing. Also there is a weekend long boat poker run, always fun. Anyway only about a five hour drive from Jax!!!Lots of good food and most of the young touristas are gone for the year. Any questions feel free to PM me.

        The gulf is 10 times more clear than the Atlantic...

          I agree with Unit. The gulf is going to be more clear. But it sounds like the type of water you are looking for is in Hawaii or Tahiti.

            You might want to ask this sort of question on city-data.

              If you're heading to the south Florida area, Ft. Lauderdale is a nice area to visit. As someone else mentioned, if you're going to be near the panhandle, take the time and drive to the Destin area. It's truly incredible over there. JAX does not have nice water at all.
