Unofficial Guide: Tacos and turrets in Jacksonville, Fla.

__Say Queso__Jacksonville's eastern suburbs (including Ponte Vedra Beach, where the Players takes place this week) sit on 20 miles of pristine Atlantic sand. It makes sense, then, that some of the best food in North Florida can be found at a relaxed beach-food stop called TacoLu. Situated on the beach side of the Intercoastal Waterway in Jacksonville Beach, TacoLu offers a simple formula—baja fish tacos created with house-made tortillas and salsa, and more than 100 varieties of tequila.

It's much easier to get inside now. The National Park Service runs the fort , and a ticket costs $7. The displays on site chronicle the fort's life under Spanish, English, Confederate and American flags, and its unfortunate role as a holding prison for Native Americans relocated from Florida in the 1870s. It's absolutely worth the 25-mile drive down scenic A1A from Jacksonville, especially if you pair it with a visit to the World Golf Hall of Fame. There's more to see than just 2013 inductee Colin Montgomerie's old driver. Promise.
