Hello sg,

I suspect that parking at the cruise port is expensive. I know nothing about this place, but apparently some people use V.I.P. Park and Ride. http://www.cruiseparkingjacksonville.com/

The Landing is on the St. Johns River in the middle of downtown Jacksonville. From there, there is a nice view of the river and boats on the river, the four big downtown bridges, and the opposite bank of the river. Pick a restaurant at The Landing or go to the food court and have a meal with a view. The bridges are lighted at night, but the view is nice both day and night.

Sally Corp, near The Landing, offers free tours of it's facility Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-1, but by reservation only! (No tours in July or August.) Sally Corp makes dark rides and animatronics - things like T-Rex for places like Disney World. There is a good video on their web site: http://sallycorp.com/company/tours/ (904) 355-7100

The Cummer Museum is a very nice art gallery. It's also downtown and not far from Sally Corp and The Landing.

If you have never visited Saint Augustine, you could drive 30 miles south of Jacksonville for a visit. You could spend a few days there, but any time there is better than no time. Consider staying in St. Augustine overnight before you drive back to Atlanta. As long as you are so close to Saint Augustine, it would be a shame to miss it.
