As part of our southeastern road trip we planned a night in Jacksonville Beach to check out the area as we had never been there. One of the reasons was we wanted to stay at the Hampton Inn with the heated lagoon style waterfall pool that was right on the Ocean. It was a nice hotel that was close to a lot of dining options which was nice. After dinner we went swimming but I spent most of the time in the hot tub myself as it was chilly even with the heated water. Our room looked out over the pool too which was nice. Everything else was fine including the free Hampton breakfast. We headed out early to explore more of the city and head to Saint Augestine.
