Fresh Air and Fresh Food!

If you have any tips on things to do in Jacksonville and surrounding areas, feel free to let us know on our Facebook page!

Welcome to the heart of summer here in Jacksonville. The heat is here to stay, but at least we’ll stay in the double digits all weekend and won’t go near 100 degrees for a while.
