    Visit Devils Den - Swim, Snorkle and Scuba Hot Spot.




    Visit one of North America's most prehistoric places, Devil's Den -- an underground spring inside a dry cave in central Florida. The remains of many extinct animals from the Pleistocene Age (2 million - 10,000 years ago) were discovered at Devil's Den, including the bones of early man, dating back to 7,500 B.C.

    The pleasant year-around temperature of 72 degrees in the Den allows comfortable diving, winter or summer. On cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the cave's chimney. Hence, the early settlers called the place Devil's Den.

    You'll find open water and cavern diving at its best & will be fascinated by the rock formations with stalactites and 33 million year old fossil beds, truly a natural wonder. On a cold winter morning you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the chimney. Thus, the early settlers gave the name Devil's Den.

    Crystal clear water, year round 72 degree temperatures, ancient rock formations with stalactites, fossil beds, and much more. Devil's Den is truly a natural wonder. Bring the family and enjoy a day of fun and relaxation at Devil's Den.

    3 Story Lines Going into Jaguars Training Camp




    It’s about that time again where coolers and tailgate gear gets busted out of the garage, jerseys and hats get washed, and folks prepare to say goodbye to their significant others because the glory of the NFL is almost back! We’re headed into training camp and the Jacksonville Jaguars, by all accounts, have had a fantastic off-season. A lot of change has happened with this team and there is a buzz about this team that hasn’t been felt in a long time. The city is ready to fall in love with the Jaguars again, from all of the stadium upgrades to the positive things the team is doing in the community and the only thing that’s missing a competitive product on the field.

    To help you get amped up for training camp and for those who haven’t paid attention to any of the off-season stuff, here’s the 3 storylines to follow during camp:

    When a player is drafted in the top 10 of the NFL Draft, it’s expected that the rookie is going to produce for a team and right away. Even more so when that player is a quarterback.

    Healthy Soup Options During the Cold and Flu Season




    The variations of soups are endless given the number of different proteins, grains and vegetables one could choose. Soup is oh so nourishing and it provides hydration, electrolytes, and energy for your body. A warm cup of soup is often the go-to food of choice if you unfortunately fall ill during cold and flu season. But are all soups healthy?

    Though comforting, soup typically has a high sodium content. One Cup of canned soup often has anywhere from 480 to 890 milligrams of sodium; this can reach up to 38% of the recommended maximum daily allowance of 2300 milligrams.

    If cream is used as the foundation for soup, such as in a bisque or chowder, the fat content may rise above 10 grams per cup; that’s 90 calories from fat! So how does one justify enjoying this simple dish while still meeting healthy standards?

    One option is to cook from scratch; by doing this you can replace the salt with herbs and spices. The outcome can be successful if you are comfortable in the kitchen or following a great recipe. Unfortunately for me, I tried this myself and results were inconsistent; sometimes very flavorful and other times my soup was quite watery. Another alternative for healthy people without kidney issues is to use a potassium based salt su...   [Read More]

    A Night Well Spent @ Painting with a Twist




    Finding something fun to do in Jacksonville isn’t a very hard task, and finding somewhere to have a good drink is an even easier one. After some exploring the area, I stumbled upon Painting with a Twist in San Marco, an eclectic little painting studio that offers painting lessons with the perks of enjoying an adult beverage at the same time. The studio has a welcoming family feel as it is owned and operated by brother-sister duo and Jacksonville natives, Geri and Josh Bernard. From birthday parties, Bachelorette celebrations, or simply because you have a night off they provide the paint and you have all the fun!

    Classes for every skill level are offered every week, and also open for private party bookings if you are looking to have a special gathering. Sizes of classes vary from a ten person private party to going on forty to make for a packed house. The best part about Painting with a Twist is that no experience is necessary, every painting is taught step-by-step by an instructor on stage going at your pace. The team motto is even “Fun art, not fine art” as they want you and your crew to have fun while creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art to take home at the end of the night.

    In my class, we were p...   [Read More]
