Entertainment around Palatka Fl

I have a job opportunity at the local Paper Co, and was wondering, if i relocated to that area, what are my entertainment choices? Having searched the local Palatka pages, I know that's it small town . Fishing, hunting etc. Was wondering what's really close by other than Jax which seems to be a 1 hour drive.

Thanks for for any info

You should post this on the Jax or St. Augustine forum. Those are the closest cities and maybe someone will be helpful from up that way.

Do yourself a favor and and keep going. There's little to do and it's safest to stay home. There's nothing more important than protecting your family and, with a corrupt Police Dept. and City officials who seem to want to conceal that to avoid lawsuits, you're better off somewhere else.

Education is ranked as one of the lowest in Florida, the poverty level is one of the highest, drug use and related violent acts are rampant, and juvenile crime rips this city apart. There are at least four known gangs in this tiny town.

In Palatka 1 out of 53 people will become a victim of crime (www.neighborhoodscout.com/fl/palatka/crime).

Palatka ranks 11th for least safe cities in the nation (www.city-data.com/top27.html). Please check this site for more info. They rated Palatka @ 921.8 while the U.S. average is 320.9.

I'm so sorry I ever moved here and the only reason I stay is because the collapsed housing market keeps me tied down.
