By Stuart Hughes

Who doesn’t enjoy going on vacation with friends? Well, an exhilarating boys’ trip away is no exception. If you want to escape the daily routine for a few days and reconnect with your best friends, check out our guide for a guys’ trip to Jacksonville, Florida, to help whet your appetite.  

Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience golfing with your best friends at the world-famous TPC Sawgrass golf course or deep-sea fishing off the Florida coast, with year-round sunshine, join us as we head to Northeast Florida and the city of Jacksonville for an ultimate guys’ trip adventure. 

Craft Beer Breweries in Jacksonville 

Fast becoming known for its superb range of craft beer breweries within Jacksonville’s city limits, a craft brewery tour is our first activity on our guys’ trip to Jacksonville guide. A top contender on our list of must-try breweries is the award-winning Wicked Barley Brewing Company. Just sit back and relax as you try their India pale ales and Belgian tripels while enjoying their full-service restaurant, tap room, and waterfront beer garden. 

The incredible Hyperion Brewing Company is our second tip while on a guy’s escape to Jacksonville. Located in the Historic Springfield area of Jacksonville, this fantastic brewery features over 15 rotating taps of delicious craft-brewed beers and is ideal for spending time with your buddies. Unwind as you catch up with the guys in the stunning Helios Beer Garden while playing lawn games in the sun. 

World-class Golfing in Jacksonville 

If your favorite boys’ trips away always involve a round or two of golf, then Jacksonville, Florida, will not disappoint you. Where better to tee off for the best 18 holes of your life than playing at TPC Sawgrass – home to the world-famous THE PLAYERS Championship? Soak in the surroundings and create a few magical moments as you all try to land on the legendary 17th hole’s island green on your first attempt. 

The immaculately groomed Queen’s Harbour Golf Club is our second golf course recommendation on our guys’ trip to Jacksonville. Home to events including the PGA Tour Qualifier, you and your friends can test your wits amongst the tidal marshes and century-old Spanish oak trees before enjoying a well-earned drink at the club’s 19th hole overlooking the freshwater marina. 

Jacksonville Fishing Charters and Water Sports 

We take to the water next on our guide of the best things to do on a guys’ trip to Jacksonville. Where better to bond with the boys than a spot of deep-sea fishing off Florida’s Northeast coast? Joining the crew at Team Buck Rogers, you can take the guys out for several hours of fun fishing in the sun on the high seas. 

Alternatively, you can head down to the team at All Wet Sports for an alternative adrenaline-fueled guys’ vacation adventure on the water. Here, you can rent kayaks and paddleboards to explore the waters around Jacksonville. Or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, book a group lesson to learn how to windsurf, paddleboard, or wakeboard instead. 

Jacksonville’s Southern Cuisine 

Another compelling reason guys’ trips to Jacksonville are becoming popular is the assortment of delicious cuisine on offer. Our first must-visit restaurant is the southern BBQ-inspired The Bearded Pig, available in two great locations in downtown Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach. Here, you and your buddies can feast upon the rich, smoky, slow-cooked treats of the South over a beer or two in the outdoor beer garden.

If you’re looking to end your guys’ trip to Jacksonville on a high, our second recommendation of the Orsay Restaurant is the perfect choice for a gourmet experience. Located just a few blocks from the city’s waterfront, this incredible French bistro delivers the finest cuisine with an added Southern twist and an ideal way to toast the end of a great vacation away together with the boys. 

Jacksonville – Where Sun, Sea, and Sand Unite 

If you’re seeking inspiration for a great destination to visit, there aren’t many cities that can match a guys’ trip to Jacksonville. Soak in the great weather and southern hospitality Jacksonville is famous for as you pack in a round of golf or have fun on the water.  

With year-round attractions, taking a boys’ trip to Florida could be just what the doctor ordered. Reconnect and reminisce about the good old days during a craft beer tour or over several courses of fine Southern cooking. Complete the perfect guys’ trip to Jacksonville by booking your stay at the stunning Best Western Oceanfront in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
