Post cruise tips?

Hi,

We are arriving back in Jacksonville port Thurday 10th July from a Carnival cruise. The ship arrives back in about 7am and our flight departs Orlando MCO at 8pm that evening.

I estimate the drive back to Orlando is about 3 hours approx, is it worth staying around Jacksonville for that time or would we be better to head back to Orlando?

Any tips are appreciated!

Head back to Orlando with a stop in St. Augustine for a look around and lunch. You have time to take one of the trolley tours for a good overview.

You will already have seen enough water.

I agree...head to St. Augustine and kick around the town for a little while. There are some great shops and restaurants and you'll probably enjoy it. It's right on your way to Orlando.
