    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.

    O.A.R. RETURNS TO PERFORM AT ST. AUGUSTINE AMPHITHEATRE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2014




    St. Augustine, FL (August 4, 2014) – Roots-and-reggae jam band, O.A.R., will return this fall to perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre along with special guest, Andy Grammer. The show will take place on Friday, November 14 and tickets will go on sale to the public this Friday, August 8 at 10AM.

    Classic American author Thomas Wolfe famously stated “you can’t go home again,” but don’t tell that to the members of O.A.R. on their eighth studio album, THE ROCKVILLE LP, the shape-shifting rock band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration.

    “This isn’t about us going back to our musical roots per se,” says lead singer Marc Roberge, who founded O.A.R. in 1996 with his Rockville, Md. high school classmates, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, and bassist Benj Gershman (saxophonist Jerry DePizzo joined while the group was at Ohio State University). “It’s about us getting inspired by the place we came from. We’d drive the same roads, visit the old haunts, and spend time with our people. Rockville was the catalyst then, and it’s the catalyst now.”

    For the first time in a while, the band found that visiting the...   [Read More]

    The Mega Event: Carrie Underwood Recap




    The Mega Event that many people came to on Saturday was the soccer game DC United against Fulham FC. After a great game played came the unveiling of the new scoreboards at Everbank Field. The scoreboards are very unique with a crisp, bright look. After the ceremony, the crowd was ready for the next big show to start at Everbank Field: Carrie Underwood. She has played in Jacksonville many times, but never in Everbank Field. We did have a concert in Everbank Field this year and that was the Florida Country Superfest; and it was awesome to have another concert in the stadium.

    She kicked off the show with her hit “Good Girl” and followed up with her song “Wasted” from her first album “Some Hearts”. Carrie Underwood has released four albums in the past 9 years and had a lot of hit singles. One of her newest singles she debuted was the song “Keep Us Safe”. This song was presented at the ACM’s All- Star Salute to the Troops. I believe this is a song that will be on her new album that she will be releasing sometime in the future. The show kept on going as she performed her other hit songs such as “See You Again”, “Last Name”, “Two Black Cadillacs”, “Jesus Tak...   [Read More]

    Alligator Tries To Enter Walmart In Florida Monday Night




    Apopka, Fl - A 6 ft alligator hung out at the entrance of a Florida Wal-Mart Superstore Monday Night. The gator (pictured below) wasn't afraid of shoppers and hung out in front of the moving doors for about a hour. The doors even opened multiple times for the creature but the gator remained outside.
